Rousey vs. Holm to Now Headline UFC 193

The UFC women's bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, originally scheduled for UFC 195 on January 2, will now take place at the 70,000 seat Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on November 14 (November 15 in Australia).

UFC President Dana White announced the UFC 193 main event switch on Friday's edition of ESPN SportsCenter.

"Ronda Rousey was huge for us in Brazil," White said of Rousey's UFC 190 win over Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro. "She was well received there and it was just a phenomenal event. It did very well on Pay-Per-View here in the United States, and she's obviously a huge superstar for us. Australia's an important market for us, so we're gonna bring her out there in our first real big stadium show, and we know she'll break the (all-time MMA attendance) record out there."

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.
