WHILE NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED, ROBBIE LAWLER WILL HEAD DOWN UNDER FOR HIS NEXT TITLE DEFENSE.

Australia has hosted seven UFC fights since 2011, but never a UFC title fight – until now.

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will defend his belt against former interim titleholder Carlos Condit, in what promises to be one of the most action-packed fights of the year.

UFC has yet to confirm the fight, along with the venue, but either Etihad Stadium or Rod Laver Arena will host the 14 November card.

UFC 193 could also pull in some of Australia’s top MMA talent, including heavyweight Mark Hunt, middleweight Robert Whittaker and lightweight Jake Matthews.

Michael Bisping, who defeated Thales Leites on a card he headlined in Glasgow last month, was named as a potential opponent for Whittaker.
