In a surprise announcement on ESPN's 11 PM ET edition of SportsCenter, UFC president Dana White confirmed that Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm, originally scheduled to headline UFC 195 in January, is now the new main event for UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia on November 15th (November 14th in North America). Just last week, Rousey made her own announcement on ABC's Good Morning America that her next title defense would be against Holm in Las Vegas on the UFC's traditional New Year's weekend PPV.

At the time, the original main event was a welterweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit, with a co-main heavyweight rematch between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva. Unfortunately, dreams of a Rousey vs. Holm/Lawler vs. Condit twinbill have been dashed, as a thumb injury has forced Lawler off the card.

Well that's disappointing. Lawler/Condit is a fight everyone was excited for.

I Hate that Robbie is out, but I love watching Rampage murder that cardboard door

Rousey is such a crazy huge star. If she was getting cheered in Brazil, I can only imagine the pop she will get in Australia.

Another PPV event I will not be wasting 60 bucks on. What a weak-ass sad card. The whole Bisping on an Aussie card still blows my mind. Bisping is from England not Australia ( I understand the accent is close but not a good enough reason). Last I knew, English people look down on Aussies. So, why would you always put a English guy on an Aussie card? I get he is fighting an Aussie but it is still kind of stupid. My Aussie friends think it is a joke. My money is on 400,000 or less PPV buys and I won't be one of them people.

It'll do well because a ton of people who don't give a shit about mma but care about Ronda Rousey will order it.

For at least 40,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups.

After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades;



Apart from the Aborigines (who came from Africa) Australia was founded by British prisoners.

I think it will sell well too, despite how much it burns me up inside. Spitz actually hasn't fought in England since he fought Sexyama. He has been on several Australian cards, including one where the illegal knee and spitting incidents occurred.

This is disappointing, I read the title thread as they were adding this to the card also, not taking away lawler/condit. This deserves another really high caliber fight. Etihad stadium has a capacity over 50,000 and I'm pretty sure it will be full and for that This card needs another top notch fight.

This will still be a very big deal, just not to most MMA fans. No Lawler vs Condit, no Jedz vs Claudia, no interesting.
