The UFC will be making its first trip down under when they host UFC 110 in Sydney, Australia. A portion of the fight card has been officially announced, however, there are several rumored fights to take place at the event as well. The main card is as follows:

The UFC has reportedly sold over 16,000 tickets for it's first foray into Australia. Aussie's Elvis Sinosic and George Sotiropoulos have the honor of fighting in their home country. There are some pretty important fights on this card even though there is no title fight to headline the event. We'll get to see if Wanderlei Silva has what it takes to win at middleweight against Michael Bisping. We'll get to see if Cain Velasquez is ready to take the torch from a legend in Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the main event. Goran Reljic could possibly make his UFC return and Mirko Cro Cop will see if he can get back into the winner's circle.
