Maybe my experience is not the norm, but my girlfriend is Chinese and I have talked with at least 25-30 Chinese people about if they support other Aisans in sports and in general. It isn't a mixed response... they actually HATE Japanese, don't really like Koreans and consider Vietnamese and Thais etc. as low brow peasants. They are all like 35 plus years old though. It just seems to me maybe the UFC is going about trying to get China into this the wrong way....

Would be a silent show since there would be 8 languages spoken in the house... doubt they would have live-in translators.

Do Chinese people really care about Japanese fighters?

Yeah in my experience mainland Chinese are extremely nationalistic. They are still taught in school (state education...) and at home about how the Japanese are rapists and murders and not to be trusted(WW2). I think the Fertittas are shortsighted in this TUF China thing if they try to throw in non Chinese Asians...

So.... who is Cung fighting, I wanna see Cung fight, if only one last time. The bout againt Franklin ended so quick, we hardly got to see Cung in action.

He did awesome against Wanderlei untill he gassed.
