The UFC makes its debut in mainland China on Saturday, November 25th at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. Kelvin Gastelum was supposed to face Anderson Silva in the main event, but Silva’s USADA drug test failure means that Gastelum is now fighting recently dethroned middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
It’s uh... well this is a UFC event, I suppose. Li Jingliang is the co-headliner, as he faces fellow welterweight Zak Ottow. My personal favorite fight by far is a featherweight bout on the prelims, as Zabit Magomedsharipov fights Sheymon Moraes.
Set your alarm clocks accordingly, because this is a Fight Pass-only show that starts at 3:45 AM ET. Here’s next week’s card:
