According to UFC China rep, Aaron Randolph of Rxtreme Sports, the UFC's plans to open an office in China have yet to come to fruition and, as originally reported, are still scheduled for the end of the year:

"The UFC is dead serious about coming here. It's just a matter of time. In the past half-year alone we've taken some huge steps, setting up ufc.cn and the deal with sohu.com to air events live and free. Next step, the office. It'll open by years-end."

As to the office's location and who would front it, Randolph had this to offer:

"It could open anywhere, but Shanghai and Beijing seem like the most likely candidates. China's MMA scene is definitely centered around Beijing, though."

As a member of the MMA community here in China, I can say for sure that the China office has yet to open. Randolph and his company, Rxtreme, have been the consulting company for the UFC in China for the past three years and helped put together both the sohu deal and ufc.cn. If anyone in-country would know, it would be him. Personally, I like the pace the UFC is taking in entering China and can't wait for them to officially set up shop.
