UFC 193 will be held on November 15, 2015 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
The event will be the first that the promotion has held in Melbourne. It will take place on Sunday, November 15, 2015 on pay-per-view. It will also be the third stadium venue to host a UFC event after UFC 129 and UFC on Fox: Gustafsson vs. Johnson, which took place at the Rogers Centre inCanada and Tele2 Arena in Sweden, respectively.
The event was expected to be headlined by a UFC Welterweight Championship bout between current champion Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit, a former WEC Welterweight champion and former interim UFC Welterweight champion. However, the bout was scrapped from the event after Lawler suffered a thumb injury. Subsequently, a UFC Bantamweight Championship bout between undefeated champion Ronda Rousey and top contender Holly Holm, originally scheduled for UFC 195, was announced as the new headliner for this event.
The co-main event will feature a UFC Strawweight Championship bout between current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Valérie Létourneau. This marks the second time in UFC history where both co-main-events are headlined by women bouts.
