UFC signs 2 Chinese champions
The UFC has added Chinese champions Li Jingliang and Jumabieke Tuerxun to their roster.
The welterweight finals will be between two of the most experienced Chinese stars in Wang Sai and Zhang Lipeng, while the featherweight bracket will be contested between popular model turned fighter Yang Jianping and fellow Art of War veteran Ning Guangyou.
These men were the early favorites and first picks made by head coaches Zhang Tiequan and Ao Hailin, so it comes to no surprise that all four fighters have indeed made it to the finals of their respective weights. The two inaugural champions of the popular reality show will be crowned on the TUF: China Finale on March 1 in Macau, a card which will be headlined by welterweights Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway.
