UFC on FX 6/TUF: 'The Smashes' fight card finalized

Brendon Thorne

Check out what the UFC on FX 6 card looks like with TUF: The Smashes complete and the finalists confirmed.

The UFC makes another stop to Australia next Friday (Saturday in Australia) with a card that doubles as the season finale for The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK. Worst case scenario is that a TUF like this that is filmed in Australia would feature at least one all-UK final, and that's exactly what happened in the lightweight final. As for the welterweight final, Bradley Scott (UK) fights Robert Whittaker (AUS).

Coaches Ross Pearson and George Sotiropoulos fight in the main event, but the most important fights on the card are definitely Hector Lombard against Rousimar Palhares (co-main) and the leading preliminary card fight between featherweight contender Chad Mendes against Hacran Dias.

Brisbane is the location for this one and former WEC ring announcer Joe Martinez will handle UFC duties, as Bruce Buffer will be in Las Vegas for The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

There is one change to report, a fight between Eddie Mendez vs. Nick Penner in the middleweight division has seen Mendez off the card (you can guess why) and the newcomer has been replaced by another newcomer in Cody Donovan. That will be the first fight of the evening.
