If Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) can sell out the massive Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, that would be an incredible feat. Not just because it holds upward of 60,000 fans, but also because it features a pair of female fights in the main and co-main events.
The current record is 55,724 set by UFC 129 inside Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
UFC President Dana White called women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey the biggest star in combat sports and leaving no ticket unsold would eliminate any doubt. "Rowdy" will get a little help from the addition of local stars like Mark Hunt, who rematches Antonio Silva as part of the main card line up.
The full UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) card (see it here) goes down a week from Saturday night (Nov. 14, 2015) with "Prelims" on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass. Challenging Rousey for her 135-pound strap is undefeated boxing import Holly Holm.
