Late Friday night, UFC president Dana White went on Sportscenter and announced that Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm will be the main event of UFC 193, which will take place on Nov. 14 in Melbourne, Australia.
It was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 195 on Jan. 2.
So what’s the reason for the change?
Well, it seems that UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler has sustained an injury to his thumb and will not be able to fight Carlos Condit on that date anymore.
The news comes from the UFC, who had this to say in a statement about the change:
The change comes after UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler was forced to withdraw from his UFC 193 main event bout against Carlos Condit due to a thumb injury.
