"The UFC in Asia is growing at an impressive pace and this event in Seoul will mark our second new market this year,” UFC Asia manager Kenneth Berger said in a statement to the media.

"South Korea has some of Asia's best MMA athletes and this event is fully expected to illustrate just how powerful and technical these fighters have become."

The event will take place on November 28 in Seoul's Olympic Park Gymnastics Arena, as the UFC continues to extend its reach in Asia, having previously visited Manila, Singapore, Macau and Tokyo.

UFC is immensely popular in Korea and various fighters from the country participate for the mixed martial arts production, including Kim Dong-hyun, Lim Hyun-gyu and Jung Chan-sung, who is currently fulfilling his military service commitments.
