UFC on FUEL TV 6 announced for CotaiArena on Nov. 10 in China

Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel

Big trouble in Little Southern China.

In a deal that's been several years in the making, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is heading overseas on Nov. 10, 2012 for its UFC on FUEL TV 6 event from the CotaiArena at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in the People’s Republic of China.

Just don't expect Dan Hardy to attend.

It was just over three years ago when the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion landed a major television deal with Inner Mongolia Television (Nei Mongol TV) to broadcast its brand of combat sports in China. A year later, the official UFC China website went live and former NBA China Executive, Mark Fischer, was named Executive Vice President and Managing Director for the organization's new offices in Asia.

There was even talk about The Ultimate Fighter: "China."

Now, the UFC can finally reap the rewards for its tireless expansion efforts and Lorenzo Fertitta, UFC Chairman and CEO, talks about the future of MMA in China, in today's official release.

"Breaking into a market with a population of over 1.3 billion is both a testament to the growth of our sport and a long-term challenge we are excited to undertake. This is just the first of many world-class fights we plan to hold over the coming years in China, one of the birthplaces of martial arts. The world-class CotaiArena in Macau is an ideal place to start this journey."

The 15,000-seat CotaiArena opened in 2007 and has since "established itself as the top live-entertainment venue in southern China." No ticket information has been released and the UFC has yet to assign any names to this pending fight card, but we'll be sure to bring you that information just as soon as it becomes available.

Stay tuned!
