Late Monday night, the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia will host “UFC on FX 6.” The December 15th event features the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. U.K.”

Lightweights Ross Pearson (Pictured) and George Sotiropoulos, who are serving as opposing coaches in this season’s edition of the reality series, will also meet in the show.

As expected, Hector Lombard faces Rousimar Palhares in the Land Down Under. The middleweights will likely receive the card’s second-to-top billing.

Krzysztof Soszynski will end his brief retirement, as well. The light heavyweight veteran gives it one final go against Ednaldo Oliveira.

FX will broadcast the main card live in North America (on Friday the 14th due to the time zone difference).

Here is the show’s current roster:

Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Ednaldo Oliveira

TUF: Australia vs. U.K. lightweight finals

TUF: Australia vs. U.K. welterweight finals

Hector Lombard vs. Rousimar Palhares

George Sotiropoulos vs. Ross Pearson
