UFC on FX 6 Update: ‘TUF Australia vs. U.K.’ Coaches Pearson, Sotiropoulos Meet on Dec. 15
As expected, “The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. U.K.” coaches
will collide at UFC on FX
Multiple outlets have reported the pairing, which will be held at
an as-yet unknown venue in Australia on Dec. 15. The “TUF Australia
vs. U.K.” welterweight and lightweight finals are also expected to
take place at the event, as will a recently announced middleweight
showdown between Hector
Lombard and Rousimar
Sotiropoulos, a semifinalist on Season 6 of the reality series,
will be making his first Octagon appearance of 2012. The
35-year-old Australian had an eight-fight winning streak snapped by
Siver at UFC 127 before suffering a first-round knockout loss
to Rafael dos
Anjos in his next outing at UFC 132 last year.
After a six-bout stint at lightweight, Pearson made his 145-pound
debut in December, earning a unanimous decision triumph over
Assuncao at UFC 141. The “TUF 9” winner came up short in his
sophomore featherweight effort, however, falling to Cub Swanson
via TKO at UFC on FX 4 in June. Pearson will return to 155 pounds
for his bout with Sotiropoulos.
The upcoming season of “TUF” debuts Sept. 19 and airs Wednesdays on
FX in Australia.

UFC 175 and The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale had a lot to offer. There were two title fights, both spectacular in their own right. Other fighters like Justin Scoggins and Dustin Ortiz also made a name for themselves. Crowds both nights seemed to be genuinely enthusiasic.

It's time to separate the winners from the losers, the best from the worst more
