On November 8, 2014, the UFC heads to the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia for UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Bisping.

This will mark the fourth event the UFC has held in Sydney, but the first time the promotion has hosted an event there since March of 2012.

The main event features a middleweight grudge match between Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping and it has the potential to be one of the best fights of the year. But this card is much more than just a quality main event.

 

Sao Palelei vs. Walt Harris

In the opening bout of the main card, Australia’s Sao Palelei takes on Walt Harris in a heavyweight bout that has the potential to produce some real fireworks. Palelei and Harris are true heavy hitters so don’t expect this one to go the distance. Between the power both men have, the fact Palelei is trying to get back in the win column, and Harris wanting to impress the UFC brass, this bout is going to be jaw dropping.

 

Ross Pearson

Ross Pearson may never win a UFC title, he may never even challenge for a UFC title, but that doesn’t matter as he is a lot of fun to watch. Pearson brings an excitement and energy into the cage with him that’s infectious; you just can’t take your eyes off of him when he fights. Expect to see another entertaining bout from Pearson.

 

Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping

This main event is going to be good. Rockhold and Bisping are two of the best middleweights in the world and they put on exciting fights. The fact that they really don’t like each other only adds to the allure of this bout. Both men in this bout are well-rounded, so regardless of where this fight takes place, it’s going to be fun to watch.
