UFC has officially unveiled the complete fight card ahead of the organization's first event in greater China. UFC Macao: Franklin vs. Le will take place on Nov. 10 at the CotaiArena. Main card UFC Macao is headlined by the middleweight fight between former UFC champion Rich Franklin and former Strikeforce champion Cung Le. Franklin (29-6, 1 NC) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Wanderlei Silva at UFC 147 in June. Le (8-2), meanwhile, most recently fought at July's UFC 148, where he defeated Patrick Cote in a unanimous decision. The landmark event also will feature the first Chinese fighter ever to compete in the Octagon. Tiequan "The Mongolian Wolf" Zhang, who has three UFC bouts under his belt, will take on UFC debutant Jon "Super Saiyan" Tuck of Guam -- who suffered a memorable broken toe in the TUF Live elimination bouts -- in a lightweight contest. Also on the card, Stanislav Nedkov (12-0) meets Brazilian striker Thiago Silva in a light-heavyweight fight. Plus, South Korean MMA pioneer Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim will appear in a welterweight bout against Brazil's Paulo Thiago. Mac Danzig, season six winner of "The Ultimate Fighter," will meet former Pride and Shooto champion Takanori "The Fireball Kid" Gomi in a lightweight war. South Korean star bantamweight Kyung Ho Kang will make his UFC debut against TUF 12 fan favorite Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres in what is expected to be a wide-open contest. Preliminary card The featured preliminary bout is the faceoff between attack-minded flyweights Yasuhiro ********** and John Lineker. Their first meeting was scrapped when UFC 151 was cancelled. The fight between bantamweights Takeya Mizugaki and Jeff Hougland, also originally slated for UFC 151, also has been rebooked. Tom DeBlass, a training partner of former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, has verbally agreed to drop down to middleweight to face Riki Fukuda of Japan. And Korean fighter Hyun Gyu "The Ace" Lim will carry a five-match winning streak into his UFC debut against Brazilian Marcelo Guimaraes (8-0-1).
