Aussie Kyle Noke Meets Fellow Welterweight Seth Baczynski at UFC on FX 6
will once again fight Down Under for the
Ultimate Fighting Championship
, as the Aussie has been booked
to face fellow welterweight Seth
at UFC on FX
The event airs live on Dec. 14 in the United States and also serves
as the season finale for “The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. U.K.”
Pearson and George
Sotiropoulos are expected to collide in the evening’s
headliner, while the show’s finalists will do battle earlier in the
evening to decide both the lightweight and welterweight season
winners. UFC on FX 6 takes place at the Gold Coast Convention and
Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Australia, and will also see
former Bellator champion Hector
Lombard collide with leg lock specialist Rousimar
Palhares in the co-main event.
Noke, 32, was victorious in his welterweight debut just over two
weeks ago at UFC 152, earning a technical knockout over Charlie
Brenneman. The win snapped a two-fight skid for “KO,” as Noke
was bested by Ed Herman and
Craig in his last two middleweight appearances prior to making
the cut to 170 pounds.
Baczynski, 30, rides a six-fight winning streak into his clash with
Noke. “The Polish Pistola” posted three victories last year and has
already earned another pair of wins to kick off 2012, edging
Benoist in a split decision on June 8 before knocking out
Thoresen with a sharp counter left hook that relieved the
Norwegian of his consciousness in the first round of their UFC 152
