    Korea may get to host its first UFC event late this year or early next year according to Mark Fischer, the Ultimate Fighting Championship's representative for Asia.

    With more local fighters joining the UFC and its fan base here growing steadily, Korea is becoming an attractive destination for a UFC event, he added.

    While an exact date has not been set, Fischer said ticket sales would not be a problem due to the popularity of figures like Jung Chan-sung -- nicknamed "The Korean Zombie" -- and Kim Dong-hyun.
