Ronda-Holm moved ahead to UFC 193 in Melbourne

Following injury reports to original headliner Robbie Lawler, Dana White confirmed that the UFC 193 card to be held in Melbourne, Australia, on Nov. 14, 2015 has a new main-event in Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm. Below is the tweet from the UFC’s President

It was just last week that it was announced, to everyone’s surprise, that Ronda Rousey would be facing Holly Holm in the main-event at UFC 195, with women’s straw-weight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha set to be in the co-main event. However, with Rousey’s fight moving ahead, it is unlikely that the two female champions would be fighting on the same card anytime soon.

The UFC 193 card is set to be a blockbuster one, involving the rematch of the iconic Hunt vs Bigfoot fight and Michael Bisping set to take on Robert Whittaker.
