“The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. U.K.” coaches Ross Pearson and George Sotiropoulos will cap the television program off with a December 15th bout in Australia.  According to multiple reports, the bout will be part of the UFC on FX 6 card, which has yet to have a venue and city announced.

Pearson (13-6) will return to the lightweight division after having gone 1-1 as a featherweight. Most recently in June, Pearson was stopped by Cub Swanson, after earning a unanimous decision win over Junior Assuncao in December.

The British fighter has also scored wins over Dennis Siver, Spencer Fisher, Aaron Riley and Andre Winner during his UFC career.

Sotiropoulos (14-4) will be looking to reverse a two fight losing skid, as the Australian is coming off back-to-back losses to Dennis Siver and Raphael dos Anjos. Before the defeats the TUF vet had won eight straight, which included wins over Joe Stevenson, Kurt Pellegrino and Joe Lauzon.

The upcoming UFC on FX 6 card will also feature a middleweight bout between Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares. The TUF season’s finals will also take place on the card.
