George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson will highlight Friday night’s UFC on FX 6 event from the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Center in Australia. The two lightweight competitors have coached opposite each other in a U.K. vs. Australia season of The Ultimate Fighter and will now meet inside the Octagon to decide which coach walks away with bragging rights for the their team and country.
Not only will the coaches meet on the FX portion of the card, but four fighters representing two weight divisions will also mix it up to decide who earns a UFC contract. In the welterweight final, New Zealand's Robert Whittaker will face Brad Scott from England, while in the lightweight final, English fighter Colin Fletcher will face Ireland’s "Stormin'" Norman Parke.
Before we get to those bouts, a middleweight contest of some interest will take place as Hector Lombard faces Rousimar Palhares to open the FX card.
