Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le to headline UFC on Fuel TV 6 card in Macau, ChinaPosted on August 6, 2012, 09:35 AM by Anton Gurevich
Middleweight bout between Rich Franklin and Cung Le will headline the first ever Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Chinese territory. The event will be a part of UFC on Fuel TV series, taking place on November 10th, in Macau, China.
That's according to MMAFighting.com, who quote Dana White's UFC on FOX 4 post-fight press conference comments.
The card will serve as an appetizer for the long-anticipated UFC 154: GSP vs. Condit card, currently scheduled for November 17th. UFC on Fuel TV 6 is also expected to feature a number of debutants from Japan, Korea, China, and other MMA-savvy Asian countries.
Rich Franklin is currently 29-6 in his career, with a decision victory over Wanderlei Silva in his most recent bout. It's not the first time "Ace" flies the flag for the UFC in new markets, Franklin has already headlined UFC 99 in Germany, UFC 115 in Vancouver, Canada, and UFC 93 in Dublin, Ireland.
Despite the fact that both fighters are currently on winning ways inside the Octagon, it's pretty clear that this match-up has no title shot implications.
