The UFC Fight Night series continues on the international front as the UFC returns to Macau, China on August 23rd, the promotion announced at the UFC 173 post-fight press conference on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is set to air on Fight Pass.

According to UFC President Dana White, the event will be headlined by a middleweight tilt between Cung Le and Michael Bisping while a co-main event at welterweight between Hector Lombard and Dong Hyun Kim will serve as that event's co-main event.

Le, 41, last competed in November of 2012 when he stopped Rich Franklin by knockout in the first round of their bout, coincidentally in Macau, China. While Le's been inactive, he was also the coach on the inaugural season of 'The Ultimate Fighter: China'. Bisping, 35, most recently fought at losing unanimous decision to Tim Kennedy at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale in April of this year.

Lombard, 36, is on a roll since dropping to welterweight, winning two straight, most recently against Jake Shields at UFC 171 in March. Kim, 32, who has previously competed in Macau twice, had his last fight against John Hathaway, winning by third-round TKO at The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale in March.
