UFC announces South Korea debut

At Saturday's show in the Philippines, UFC announced an 11/28 show for the Olympic Park Gymnastic Arena in Seoul, South Korea.

This will be UFC's debut in the country, which has been a hotbed for MMA on television for years dating back to the heyday of Japanese MMA and K-1.

Yoshihiro Akiyama, who is known in South Korea as Choo Sung-hoon, is likely to be a headliner as he was a major celebrity in that country a decade ago during his heyday.
