Kampmann and Carlos
Condit will square off for a second time when the welterweight
rivals lock horns at the
sophomore UFC on Fox Sports 1 event.
FoxSports.com Friday reported the upcoming rematch, which takes
place Aug. 28 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. No
other bouts have been announced for the event, which will follow
the UFC’s Aug. 17 debut on Fox Sports 1.
The 170-pound standouts first crossed paths in 2009, when Kampmann
issued the reigning World Extreme Cagefighting titlist a rude
Octagon welcome by edging Condit in a split decision at Fight Night
Condit responded to that setback by winning five straight fights,
capping that stretch with a unanimous decision victory over
Diaz to become the UFC interim welterweight champion. “The
Natural Born Killer” could not capture the undisputed title from
returning champion Georges St.
Pierre, however, as “Rush” outpointed Condit to retain his belt
last November at UFC 154. Most recently, Condit suffered a second
straight loss for the first time in nearly seven years when he
dropped a unanimous decision to Johny
Hendricks on March 16 at UFC 158.
Kampmann, meanwhile, has gone 5-4 since besting Condit, though two
of his defeats came via contentious judges’ verdicts. The Dane last
competed in November, with Hendricks snapping his three-fight
winning streak by knocking Kampmann cold in just 46 seconds at UFC
