Rich Franklin and Cung Le are set to tangle in China, as UFC president Dana White confirmed the bout is likely to headline UFC on FUEL TV 6.
The card goes down November 10 from Macau, China. It will mark the first UFC appearance in the country.
Le recently scored his first UFC victory by defeating Patrick Cote. He was originally set to meet Franklin, but “Ace” took a fight with Wanderlei Silva, instead.
Franklin defeated Silva, and has since stated he doesn’t believe a match with Le moves him closer to a potential title show in the middleweight division.
