Dana White: UFC China office opening imminently, head of operations hired

UFC President, Dana White has revealed the promotion will open the UFC China office imminently and that they have already hired a head of operations for their expansion into China.

Dana White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“(The office opens) within the next few weeks. I’m telling you, in the 10 years that you guys have known me, have I ever said (something) that I didn’t at least try to make happen? When we say we’re going to do something, we do it. We don’t just go, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re going to go to China,’ and then we just kick around for six months. If I say we’re going to China, we’re going to [expletive] China. We’re working on China right now. We’re moving fast in China.”

“We could have a show [in the U.S.] on Saturday night and five more going on in five other countries. That’s what’s going to eventually happen. It’s figuring this thing out, putting the pieces together, and like I said, it’s a work in progress. But I’m telling you guys, I said it years ago, and I’ve been saying it – how big this thing is going to be. I think people are now really starting to realize how big this thing is really going to be.”
