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.

I think Rich is on another level. Hopefully Cung can make it a war.

Good fight. I get that Cung is Asian and all but, Franklin/Cung as a main event?

Not really looking promising for the rest of the card. Phone Post

 Good matchup but not a good headliner -- especially when either of last night's (free) co-main events were bigger fights.

It's because Cung is massive over there.. Makes sense to me Phone Post
Didn't realize he was such a big name in China.

In any case, it's a great fight. Phone Post

it's a fuel event so it is free. (basically)

Not sure how much more of a main event you expect here.

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.

True. But Macau/Hong Kong is barely China.

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

Good fight

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

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

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!
