This Day in MMA History: Nov. 10

By Cole Shelton Nov 10, 2019
On Nov. 10, 2012, the Ultimate Fighting Championship was in Macau, China, for UFC on Fuel TV 6. It served as the first UFC event in China.

In the main event, Cung Le knocked out Rich Franklin in the first round. It was the Knockout of the Night and the Knockout of the Year and also was his last win as a pro. In his next fight, he went back to Macau, where he lost to Michael Bisping and retired from the sport. This was also Franklin’s last fight after he teased one more trip to the Octagon. Ultimately, he opted not to take that trip.

Also on the main card, Tim Silva submitted Stanislav Nedkov but the bout was overturned to a No Contest due to a failed drug test for Silva. The rest of the card featured a series of decision victories: Dong Hyun Kim beat Paulo Thiago by decision, Takanori Gomi beat Mac Danzig by split decision, Jon Tuck beat Zhang Tiequan by decision and Takeya Mizugaki beat Jeff Hougland by decision.

Following suit, on the prelims, Alex Caceres beat Motonobu Tezuka by decision and John Lineker beat Yasuhiro Urushitani by decision.

The event had a gate of $1,300,000 and had 8,415 people in attendance.
