The UFC is venturing for the first time into China and its over-a-billion-strong market, a fraction of which would do heaps for Dana White’s audience. Will the show win over the popular tastes in those parts?
With the main event between former middleweight champion Rich Franklin and Hollywood star Cung Le, the die is cast.
But before the big show can begin, the fighters had to take on another stern opponent: the scale. Official weigh-ins went down this morning, and only Hyun Gyu Lim was unable to make weight. His fight with David Mitchell has now been canceled.
