UFC 193: New Headline Act Announced

ufc 193

All of those rumors of Ronda Rousey’s next fight taking place in Australia were proven right by UFC president Dana White Friday night.

White appeared on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” to announce that Rousey will defend her bantamweight title against Holly Holm on November 14 in Australia at UFC 193.

The event will take place inside the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne in an attempt to break the attendance record.

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, who was scheduled to defend his title against Carlos Condit, suffered a thumb injury and will not be able to make the November date.

Originally, Rousey vs. Holm was to headline the January UFC 195 card in Las Vegas.

Below is the current lineup:

UFC Female Bantamweight Championship
Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Holly Holm
