UFC Debuts In Beijing On November 24th

Following UFC 227 on Saturday night, the UFC announced that they will make their return to China on November 24th.

The promotion will return to the nation for the first time since UFC Shanghai in November 2017, which featured Michael Bisping’s final fight, a stoppage loss to Kelvin Gastelum.

The event will mark the company’s debut in the capital of Beijing, and happen at the Cadillac Arena.

“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,” UFC vice president of Asia-Pacific Kevin Chang said in a statement.

“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.”
