Fightland travels to Beijing and Shanghai, China to get an inside look at one of the most exciting emerging markets for MMA. We meet Andy Wang and Andy Pi, two Asian-American's teaching jiu jitsu, and Joel Resnick an ex-pat promotor who convinced the government to license an MMA event for the first time. Finally we visited M-1, an event that pitted locals against Russian fighters, to see the Chinese talent firsthand.
