The UFC's first foray into Chinese territory now has a main event. UFC President Dana White announced at Saturday's UFC on FOX 4 post-fight press conference that Rich Franklin will battle Cung Le in a middleweight scrap for the UFC's scheduled November 10th card in Macau, China.

The event will be the sixth fight event in the UFC on FUEL series and will be held at the 15,000 seat CotaiArena inside the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel.

How can people bitch about this when Couture vs Coleman was ppv? I'll gladly watch this for free. Ace always puts on a show!

WEll I think there is a big difference between a fight on FOX being seen by millions compared to a FUEL fight seen by thousands. This is almost too good of a fight to be on FUEL hidden away from most of the UFC audience

Good fightExcellent name recognition and while neither is still in his prime they are both still game. Good style matchup as well.

It's a FUEL event. Not all cards can be title fights or no.1 contender bouts.

True. But Macau/Hong Kong is barely China.

He's starred in some hong kong action flicks. I thought that's where he'd be most popular? If they don't know him maybe they'll just root for the Asian guy throwing spinning kicks anyway :pShould be an awesome fight they can both take a beating

Nobody knows him here (in Hong Kong)... but he's played the bad guy in a few movies. People probably won't recognize him unless someone points it out to them.
