Attention all MMA fans in Shanghai, for the first time ever an UFC event will be held in mainland China, and the city of choice has been Shanghai. The Fight Night will take place on November 25 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
None of the fighters at the event have yet been announced, however fans will be able to buy tickets from August 1.
UFC senior international vice president Joe Carr said: 'We are always asked when the UFC will be making its debut in mainland China.
'We are honoured to confirm that Shanghai will be the home of the very first live event and to say that we are excited is an understatement. The entire organisation is looking forward to making history this year.'
It was also confirmed that fighters will be touring Shanghai and other Chinese cities to meet fans and promote the event, including UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.
