UFC 193, which will feature the welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit will officially take place at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium.

The news was confirmed by UFC president Dana White, who also confirmed that a rematch between heavyweights Mark Hunt and ‘Bigfoot’ Silva will take place on the card as well.

The stadium can hold over 55,000 fans.

According to a report from the Melbourne Herald Sun, White was quoted as saying:

“There’s been a lot of talk about Melbourne, title fights and stadium shows. The UFC is doing all three at the Etihad Stadium in front of 70,000 people.”

The current UFC attendance record is 55,729, which occurred back at UFC 129 in 2011.
