UFC on FX 6: Bleacher Report MMA Main Card Staff Predictions
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

This Friday, the UFC heads to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre with The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes finale. 

Coaches Ross Pearson and George Sotiropoulos face off in the main event of the evening in a lightweight contest. Pearson is making his return to 155 after a brief run at featherweight. 

In The Smashes welterweight finals, Aussie Robert Whittaker faces the UK's Brad Scott. Whittaker was the most impressive contestant all season and now is just one fight away from a six-figure UFC contract.

The Smashes lightweight finals has Fight of the Night written all over it as Colin Fletcher takes on Norman Parke in an all-UK bout. Fletcher was a bit of an oddball all season, but backed up his strange behavior in the cage. 

Rounding out the broadcast, Rousimar Palhares looks to rebound against Hector Lombard—who is looking to pick up his first UFC win—in a middleweight bout. 

It's a strong international card that could have some real impact in several of the UFC's best divisions.

Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnists Matthew Roth, McKinley Noble, Sean Smith, Scott Harris, Kyle Symes, and John Heinis are back with official main-card predictions for UFC on FX 6.
