UFC NEWS – Kampmann vs. Alves In The Works For March 2012


Reports have started to circlulate this afternoon that the UFC is putting together a welterweight bout between Martin Kampmann and Thiago Alves.

No venue, date or exact location have been confirmed but it appears as if the two are in negotiations to meet at a yet to be announced event in March of 2012.

Kampmann was last seen in action defeating Rick Story at UFC 139 this past weekend. It was a much needed win after the long-time UFC resident dropped his two previous bouts to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez via controversial decisions.

For Alves, the one-time title challenger found himself on a 1-3 skid recently but was able to bounce back from his less than perfect Octagon luck and take out Papy Abedi earlier this month at UFC 138 by submission.
