Not just one, but TWO female title fights will headline UFC® 193 in Melbourne, Australia on November 14th!  Ronda ‘Rowdy’ Rousey, who is widely regarded as the biggest name in MMA fighting, will defend her UFC women’s bantamweight title against Holly ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ Holm in the main event, while in the co-main, Valerie ‘Trouble Letourneau will attempt to snatch the strawweight belt from reigning champ, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

The gigantic Etihad Stadium in Melbourne (pictured above), which has a retractable roof and can seat up to 55,000 fans, will play host to UFC 193.  This venue has seen Australian games of football and rugby as well as a number of big-name concerts.  Earlier this year, it was announced by the Australian state of Victoria that fights would be allowed to take place in both cages and rings.  That means that this event will be the debut of UFC fighting in Victoria!
