UFC Beijing Fight Night
UFC Beijing, Fight Night 141, takes place at the Cadillac Arena on November 25 (Nov. 24 in the US). The event follows the promotion’s debut on Mainland China held last year in Shanghai, where Kelvin Gastelum scored the first-round knockout win against the former middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
The main event bout of the upcoming show is yet to be announced. Nevertheless, the promotion outlined several fighters who have represented China across the world over the last several years.
“Over the past few years, UFC has worked to identify and nurture the talents of top tier Chinese athletes who have shown great strength, skill and determination to succeed inside the Octagon. UFC fans around the world have witnessed the sharp rise of local athletes such as Li Jingliang, Song Yadong, Yan Xiaonan, Song Kenan, and Pingyuan Liu, who have put their respective divisions on notice,” stated in the announcement.
UFC Vice President of Asia-Pacific Kevin Chang stated that “China is the next frontier for the growth of UFC and the sport of mixed martial arts, and this market is paramount to our success internationally.”
“We are excited to bring our next live event to China’s capital and show the world just how far we have come. Our loyal fans in China demand nothing but the best, and one year on since our debut in Shanghai, UFC Fight Night Beijing, presented by General Tire, is set to be a night to remember.”
