But will the Chinese government let them watch it? If so it will be welcome considering when I was there people were still watching Titanic and I could not get away from the Celine Dion song from it blaring in the streets, freaking DiCaprio.

I'm assuming this means China has said they would allow it. Good pick up, now we'll see more Chinese fighters in the UFC.

though, if they go the way of WWE and make two different brands and start having "cross-show" rivalries and belts....yada yada yada...i think i may have to duck and cover for the very soon after end of the world.
