LAS VEGAS (AP) - Robbie Lawler will defend his welterweight title against Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 193 on Nov. 15 in Melbourne, Australia.

The UFC announced the card Wednesday.

UFC 193 will be held at Etihad Stadium, the retractable-roof stadium that’s home to four Australian Football League teams. UFC President Dana White claims they’ll fit 70,000 fans into the stadium, which typically seats about 56,000.

The main event is the first UFC title fight in Australia. Lawler (26-10) defended his belt last month with a bloody stoppage of Rory MacDonald, while Condit (30-8) is a former interim champion.

The card also features Australia resident Mark Hunt in a heavyweight rematch with Brazil’s Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

The show will take place on a Sunday in Australia for the U.S. pay-per-view audience.
