The UFC goes to Mainland China for the first time this weekend with a fight card that’s unlikely to excite many fans, even among the hardcore audience. But, it’s not so much a “bad” card as it is a UFC card with a serious Invicta flavor to it. Lots of raw action fighters sprinkled with a few hardened regional veterans and one big fight on top to give things a little sizzle. Maybe not worth staying up for, but likely fun to watch with a cup of coffee when you wake up Saturday morning.
