- You're talking about a country with 90+ million people, it's a big market (one of the top 10 countries by population).
- It is 1 of 3 Asian countries where English is an official language.
- Besides, half of the people on the planet reside in Asia so it could be an attempt to grow the UFC in that market. Especially in a country where the fighters would be VERY hungry!
I noticed that you already answered after I posted.. Sorry dawg..
