During the weekend’s broadcast of UFC 213, the promotion announced that it will return to Sydney on November 19. The event will be taking place at the Qudos Bank Arena, formerly known as Allphones & Acer Arena.
It will the fifth visit to Sydney for the promotion and the first one since 2014 where current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping took on Luke Rockhold in the main event.
The card will be a UFC Fight Night event with no further details or match-ups confirmed as of yet.
Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. When the sport of MMA arrived many years later, it was a natural progression. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of racing an F1 car and hiking the Swiss Alps. Most of all, my family is numero uno.
