On Saturday, Nov. 14 (in North America), the UFC hosted UFC 193: Rousey vs. Holm from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

In the night’s main event, women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey took on fellow unbeaten Holly Holm. Rousey moved to 12-0 with a 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia in August. The 28-year-old’s last four wins had lasted a combined two minutes and 10 seconds. Holm, a multiple-time world champion boxer, also carried an unblemished resume into the title affair. The 34-year-old had scored back-to-back decision wins over Raquel Pennington and Marion Reneau to earn her crack at Rousey.

The co-main event also featured gold on the line as women’s strawweight titleholder Joanna Jędrzejczyk took on Canada’s Valerie Letourneau. Poland’s Jędrzejczyk demolished former champion Carla Esparza in March to earn the belt and followed that up with a third-round stoppage of another former Invicta FC champion, Jessica Penne, in June to run her record to 10-0. Letourneau, meanwhile, had yet to taste defeat inside the Octagon and enters the title affair riding a four-fight winning streak.

The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday at 6:15 p.m. ET with four fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
