Macau is one of two territories in China – Hong Kong being the other – and has well over 544,000 people living in it. The card will go down inside the Venetian Macau Resort Hotel which holds 15,000 people.
“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,” said UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta in a press release. “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.”
No fights have been announced for the card yet.
