UFC Fight Night 55 Set for Sydney, Australia
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 08.30.2014



UFC President Dana White confirmed during a pre-fight media scrum yesterday (August 29) that UFC Fight Night 55 is set to take place in Sydney, Australia. The fight card is set for November 8.

In addition, the fight card will reportedly be held at the Allphones Arena, where UFC also held the UFC on FX 2 event in March 2012. UFC Fight Night 55 will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.

Dana White and the UFC are looking to book a welterweight bout between Hector Lombard and Tyron Woodley to headline the fight card. Lombard is originally Cuban, but he currently calls Australia his home. However, Woodley does not seem too keen on the bout at the moment. White stated: "I called Woodley when I landed (in Sacramento for UFC 177), and I said, ‘Obviously this isn't a teammate thing. Here's what your teammate said, and he wants to fight bad.' (Woodley) said (Lombard) can say whatever he wants, he's about him, and he's always about him. ‘This fight doesn't work for me and my brand.' He started telling me all these reasons why he doesn't want this fight. I said, ‘Whatever kid. Do your thing.' But he wants nothing to do with Hector."

A light heavyweight bout between Anthony Perosh and Guto Inocente was confirmed for the fight card on Perosh's Facebook.
