UFC on FX 6: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson fight card

Brendon Thorne

Bloody Elbow takes a look at the current fight lineup of UFC on FX 6, set for Brisbane, Australia on December 14th (the 15th in Australia). This card also doubles as the TUF: UK vs. Australia finale.

Australia has become one of the best places to hold a UFC event just for crowd atmosphere alone. You can tell the fans are very knowledgeable and are incredibly enthusiastic. This December they host their 4th overall show and their 2nd in 2012. It also doubles as the season finale for The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes (UK vs. Australia).

The main event pits the show's coaches George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson, with the latter returning to lightweight following a 1-1 stint at 145. Also on the main card is a key middleweight fight between Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares. None of the aforementioned four won their most recent fight, and three of them were knocked out.

There are also two TUF finales expected to round out the main card in the welterweight and lightweight divisions.

The preliminary card is pretty good, with Chad Mendes taking on Hacran Dias and Anthony Perosh fighting Joey Beltran. More fights for the prelims (likely from TUF) will be announced later next month.

It should be noted that Bruce Buffer will NOT be the ring announcer for this one as the UFC has the TUF 16 Finale in Las Vegas. The replacement for that night is unknown.
