Australia has another one of its own on the UFC's return to the country in December.

Anthony Perosh (14-7 MMA, 4-4 UFC) will take on Ryan Bader (15-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC), the Season 8 winner of "The Ultimate Fighter," in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane. UFC officials announced the new fight overnight.

UFC Fight Night 33 takes place Dec. 7 in the Queensland capital at Brisbane Entertainment Centre. Broadcast plans haven't been announced, but the event is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on Facebook. Due to the time difference, the event takes place Saturday, Dec. 7, in Australia, but Friday, Dec. 6, in the U.S

First question I have is why make this fight? In what parallel universe does this make sense? Second question, what the hell did Perosh ever do to Zuffa? He just did them a solid by sending Vinny back into obscurity and out of the UFC so we hopefully never have to listen to him run off at the mouth again. Bader by destruction. I'm going to be scratching my head over this one for a while.

Perosh has a good shot here, Don't count out an Aussie at home. Bader has never really impressed me much. But he has experienced the best of aussie crowds at UFC 110, So he wont be put off as much..

Why do people get so butthurt about matchmaking? Who else should either of these two fight? It's called a crossroads fight. Bader by murder though.

Bader has too much power in his hands and he's just a bigger, thicker guy in general. Unless Perosh can grab a hold of his neck very early I think this fight is going to end very violently in Bader's favour.

I think they are giving Perosh a retirement fight in his home country. They might be thinking of building Bader up slowly after being dispatched by Jones, Tito, Machida, and Glover within the last couple years.

He's got the potential to be a top 10 mainstay, he just needs his confidence back and move to another camp. There is only so much to be gained by training with Dolloway and Simpson as the top training partners. Then again he has 3-point specialist Mike Miller in his camp too

This was the fight Perosh was asking for. I think Bader can get the KO fairly early.

This fight makes a lot of sense to me. Bader just had a high profile loss which knocked him down a peg, and Perosh just had a fairly spectacular win which boosted his standing. Bader is solidly fringe top 10 material. Perosh is 41 and doesn't have time to be messing around with low-mid tier fighters.

I think it's an interesting fight. It's anybody's game if the fight hits the floor. I could see Bader ko'ing Perosh, or grinding out a decision.

On the flip side, it wouldn't surprise me to see Anthony lock up a late sub, or even catch Ryan, and lay him out. I still favor Bader though.

I think they both deserve the match up, Perosh has had two quick KO's in a row and Bader just got owned by Glover...not to mention the sub loss to Tito came off a good hit that knocked him down, and Machida nearly removed his head from his shoulders too. If Bader makes it out in good shape and doesn't get rocked then I think that he just got caught by experienced fighters, if he gets koed by Perosh then his chin is likely gone. Either way it is cool with me.

Where is this killer Bader that I've never seen. Honestly he can't take a hit and needs to fight in close quarters to beat anybody with a punchers chance. I personally like this match up and think Perosh has a chance to make it an entertaining fight.
