UFC on FX
The event is headlined by a five-round showdown between Australian George
Sotiropoulos and British star Ross Pearson.
In addition to Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson, lightweight and welterweight
finalists of “The Smashes” will go head-to-head in search of an exclusive
contract with the UFC and title of the next Ultimate Fighter™. With a pair of
new Ultimate Fighter winners set to be crowned and a lightweight main event
featuring bitter rivals, UFC® on FX: SOTIROPOULOS vs. PEARSON is shaping up to
be a can’t-miss card for fight fans worldwide.
“This has to have been the craziest season of TUF ever!” UFC President Dana
White said. “There’s no underestimating just how much is at stake now that these
guys are fighting for their countries. Both coaches have hate in their eyes and
I bet they can’t wait to go at each other on December 15. I’ve never seen either
of them this fired up. I think we’re in for an explosive main event.”
UFC® on FX: SOTIROPOULOS vs. PEARSON live at the Gold Coast Convention and
Exhibition Centre Saturday 15th December 2012 at
8AM AEST and airs live on FX on Dec. 15 at 1 p.m. AEDT.
