Well, today marks another huge and historic event in the annals of MMA. UFC 193 headlined by the Ronda Rousey-Holly Holm title fight could destroy UFC attendance records at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
One of the other fights features strawweights Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Valerie Letourneau for the title — the latter Canadian, of course, is coming off her big victory at UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon.
As an important aside — everyone is worried about stadium security after what happened yesterday in Paris. The attacks there coincided with a big soccer match between France and Germany in which the President was in attendance. So there is some concern about that, but the folks in Australia are saying precautions are being taken.
