This Saturday, September 20th in Tokyo, Japan, the iconic Saitama Super Arena plays host to the biggest UFC event held in Japan during the company’s history.  The UFC’s attempts to sell the product to the Japanese fans may be realized with the signing of one of Pancrase’s biggest MMA stars, Rin Nakai.  The return of stars like Yoshihiro Akiyama, Takanori Gomi, Kiichi Kunimoto and two potential stars in the making, Kyoji Horiguchi and Michinori Tanaka, bolster the night’s stable of fighters.  A heavyweight main event between top ten fighters, Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson, headlines the fight card.  Miesha Tate makes the trip to Japan to face Rin Nakai in what Tate is calling the biggest Women’s MMA bout the UFC has put on in Japan.  Check back to Fight Sport Asia later in the week for further coverage of UFC Fight Night 52.  The event will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass with the first fight taking place at 12:30am EDT on Saturday morning.
