UFC Confirms China Card, Rich Franklin-Cung Le As Main Event

UFC officials made the announcement that UFC on Fuel TV: Franklin vs. Le is now set, as the promotion will invade China for the first time. The card takes place November 10 in Macau, China.

Rich Franklin, a former UFC champion, will meet Cung Le, an ex-Strikeforce champ, in the main event. Franklin (29-6) and Le (8-2) were expected to collide earlier this year, but “Ace” opted into a bout with Wanderlei Silva instead.
