This is good for the UFC. They need to find a way to bring MMA into China. For a market as large as China, with a martial arts culture, it's insane that MMA is not huge there. The UFC needs to move on from pressing into Japan, and focus entirely on China. This is there gateway into the East, and becoming a worldwide sport.
Every country needs their #1 fighter; look at what GSP did with Canada and Bisping with the UK. If this cat could be the man, this could be huge. The UFC booming in China could bleed into India, which is an insanely booming market, and trickle up to Russia, which already familiar with the sport.
"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."
