The venue is yet to be announced, but another fight has been added to UFC on FX 6, which will take place on Dec. 15 in Australia. Brazilian Ednaldo Oliveira will debut at light heavyweight against Krzysztof Soszynski, according to Brazilian reporter Guilherme Cruz.
The show will also serve as the TUF: Australia vs UK “The Smashes” series finale. It’s fitting that TUF alum Soszynski, who has previously fought for the UFC in Australia, takes his place on the card.
The announcement crushes the rumor that Soszynski, who lost to Igor Pokrajac via knockout in December last year had retired from the sport. Oliveira steps down to 205 pounds for the fight on the back of a submission loss to Gabriel Gonzaga.
The fight is expected to take place on the preliminary card, with two fights already confirmed for the main card.
Hector Lombard will look to bounce back from a disappointing UFC debut loss when he takes on Rousimar Palhares. Also on the card, the two TUF “Smashes” coaches, George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson, clash and the TUF winners will be crowned.
While no venue has been formally confirmed, MMAWeekly.com sources indicated that Queensland is one of the locations in the running to host the show.
