UFC President Dana White confirmed the news while talking to media after the UFC on FOX 4 post-fight news conference on Saturday night. Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le will headline the UFC on FUEL TV 6 event which will be the UFC’s first event held in China.
The UFC on FUEL TV 6 event will take place on November 10th in Macau at the Venetian Macau Resort Hotel and will air live on FUEL TV.
The two fighters were scheduled to meet at UFC 147, but fate intervened when the two fighters were asked to fill voids elsewhere when injuries took their toll on other fighters.
Rich Franklin (29-6) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Wanderlei Silva at UFC 147, surviving an offensive onslaught early on to earn his second win over Silva. Cung Le (8-2) lost to Silva at UFC 139 via TKO after taking more than a year off from MMA to make movies. Le was able to get his first UFC win against Patrick Cote at UFC 148, winning a unanimous decision.
