They’re hyping the RZA’s new martial arts film “The Man with the Iron Fists.” Daniel Wu is ringside and obviously Cung Le, who is fighting in tonight’s main event, is also in the film. Talk about excellent cross-promotion.
Very savvy of the UFC to feature Le in the main event of its first card in China (Macau). Nothing like a movie star to add credibility to a mixed martial arts event, and vice versa. As a fan of martial arts films, I find them much more meaningful when the people pretending to do the karate can really do the karate if needed.
This is the first fight back for Dong Hyun Kim, who lost his last fight due to a freak muscle spasm injury. Live updates after the jump:
