This just in, UFC president Dana White appeared on Sportscenter and announced that Rounda Rousey vs Holly Holm has been moved to UFC 193, in Melbourne, Australia.
The thought is that it’s the UFC’s attempt to boost attendance for the massive stadium in order to break the all time attendance record. The original main event was Robbie Lawlor vs. Carlos Condit.
It appears that the fights will all remain on the card, just be bumped down to make room for the new main event.
*update: Lawler injured his thumb, fight with Condit put on hold.
UFC 193 will take place on NOV. 14.
