Ronda Rousey will soon begin her electric race to the Octagon to the tune of Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation,” looking to make the third successful title defense of her women’s Bantamweight belt in the span of 10 months. Standing across the cage will be Holly Holm, an undefeated (9-0) mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who has 38 professional boxing matches to her credit (33-2-3).
The Rousey vs. Holm showdown will serve as the main event of UFC 193, which takes place Saturday night inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. UFC 193 is an historic event, marking the first-ever event for the world’s leading MMA organization in Victoria’s coastal capital. In addition, the promotion will attempt to break its five-year-old attendance record (55,724, set in UFC 129) when it packs the vast 60,000-seat venue.
