Martin Kampmann vs. Carlos Condit Announced for 2nd UFC on FOX Sports 1

Former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann have verbally agreed to rematch in the main event of the UFC on FS1 #2 event announced the UFC today.

 

The August 28 fight will be the second time Condit and Kampmann have fought in the Octagon.  Kampmann won their previous fight at UFC Fight Night 18 in 2009 with a split decision.

 

Since that fight, Condit (28-7) went on a 5-fight winning streak that eventually saw him defeat Nick Diaz to become the interim champion.  Condit lost his next two fights by unanimous decision: the first in a 5-round war against Georges St. Pierre for the undisputed welterweight title; the second in to now top-ranked contender, Johnny Hendricks.

 

Martin Kampmann (20-6) also lost his last fight to Johnny Hendricks back in November, 2012.  Kampmann has long been a top welterweight, and this fight against Condit could put him very near his first UFC title shot.

 

UFC on FOX Sports 1 #2 will take place Wednesday, August 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.  Tickets for the event go on sale June 14.
