UFC Heading To Singapore In 2014 For First Time

UFC Heading To Singapore In 2014 For First Time

UFC president Dana White has continually talked about global expansion for his promotion.

In 2014, that quest to take over the MMA world continues in Singapore with the first fight card hosted by the country.

The event is set for January, though no venue or broadcasting has been confirmed. The plan is to use UFC veterans and some of the top Asian prospects on the card.

“This marks a bold step for UFC’s expansion in Asia and is the first of a series of events in Asia planned for 2014,” UFC managing director of Asia Mark Fischer said. “After kicking off the year in Singapore, our fans can expect several other UFC events around the region on the docket next year, including two more fights at the Venetian’s Cotai Arena in Macau.”

Cung Le is set to appear on The Ultimate Fighter: China beginning in November.
