UFC returning to Macau in August, Japan in September

Anton Tabuena

After today's TUF China Finale, UFC exec Mark Fischer said that the UFC will be returning to the area later in the year. They're also going back to Japan.

The UFC will travel back to Asia at least twice more in 2014 according to UFC executive Mark Fischer. During the post-fight press conference for the TUF China Finale, he stated that the promotion would a stage 'Fight Night' event in Macau in August, and they'd return to Japan with a 'Fight Night' event in September:

"Based on the success of our first event in Macau and tonight, we can confirm we are going to be be back here in August. We’re holding the date of August 23rd with an even bigger event. I don’t know if we can top this, but we’re certainly going to try. And we’ll return to Japan on September 20th with a major event."

The August date in Macau will be the UFC's third trip there - before today's event, they previously held a UFC on Fuel card there in 2012 that saw Cung Le knock out Rich Franklin in the main event. They have ran shows in Japan in each of the last two years as well, with a PPV in 2012 and a Fight Night event in 2013.

No fights were announced for either card. The main event of the TUF China Finale saw Dong Hyun Kim knock out John Hathaway with a spinning elbow in the third round.
