Hector Lombard Vs. Rousimar Palhares Slated To Headline UFC’s Return To Australia

UFC president Dana White announced the main event for the promotions return to Australia, as middleweights Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares will collide. The card, UFC on FX 6, is scheduled for December 15.

No city or venue has been confirmed. The card is expected to also feature the finals in The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, which pits Australians against fighters from the United Kingdom.

With the time difference, the event will air live on Saturday morning in Australia and Friday night in North America.

Lombard (31-3-1) dropped his UFC debut to Tim Boetsch earlier this year. Australia is his adopted home country. Palhares (14-4) has won seven of his 10 UFC fights.

The card will also showcase the coaches for TUF, as Ross Pearson takes on George Sotiropoulos.
