Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann 2 Headlines UFC on Fox Sports 1 Event on Aug. 28 in Indy


ConditKampmannUFN18_063Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann put on a thriller once before, and now the two perennial welterweight contenders will take center stage on Fox’s new sports network for part two.

UFC officials confirmed the five-round bout on Friday. It was first reported by FoxSports.com.

Condit and Kampmann will rematch in the main event of UFC on Fox Sports 1: Condit vs. Kampmann 2 on Aug. 28 in Indianapolis. It is the first announced main event for any of the three Fox Sports 1 events the UFC is doing over the course of the network’s first three weeks in operation.

The first UFC on Fox Sports 1 event takes place in Boston on the network’s launch date of Aug. 17, while the third is slated for Sept. 4, which is expected to talk place in Brazil and serve as a lead-in to The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate.

Condit and Kampmann first fought on April 1, 2009, headlining UFC Fight Night 18 in Nashville, Tenn.

The two fought a back-and-forth affair, which ended with Kampmann winning a split decision victory. The bout was Condit’s first in the Octagon after moving over to the UFC as the WEC’s final welterweight champion.

He and Kampmann have both been in and out of title contention ever since.

Condit (28-7) is currently on a two-fight skid, having failed to wrest the belt from UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. He followed that up with a decision loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 158. He’s one of the few Hendricks victims that didn’t succumbed to the UFC No. 1 contender’s power punch.

Kampmann (20-6), however, wasn’t quite so lucky. His most recent fight was also a loss to Hendricks, who disrupted a three-fight winning streak by knocking Kampmann out at UFC 154, the same fight card where Condit challenged St-Pierre.

Each of them, of course, wants to get back into title contention as quickly as possible, and they’ll start by headlining on Aug. 28 in Indianapolis.
