It looks as though 2015 will be a three fight campaign for Ronda Rousey after all, as the UFC has announced that the bantamweight champ’s bout with Holly Holm has been moved to Nover 14th. Originally the two were scheduled to fight on January 2nd at UFC 194.

The original main event for UFC 193 was supposed to be Carlos Condit taking on welterweight champ Robbie Lawler, however, the latter has gone down with a thumb injury. The announcement didn’t include any details regarding new plans for Condit.

So, there you have it. It’s too bad Lawler won’t be scrapping Condit, but hopefully the UFC can re-book that fight for the coming months. Rousey (12-0) will be fighting for the first time since she stopped Bethe Correia at UFC 190, and Holm (9-0) will be looking to build on her decision win over Marion Reneau at UFC FN 71.

UFC 193 will go down at the massive, Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
