“UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann II” went down Wednesday, and in the organization’s first mid-week fight card in nearly a year, viewers were given a handful of quality MMA bouts.
Carlos Condit (29-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) righted a wrong from his UFC debut back in 2009 by avenging his first loss inside the octagon to Martin Kampmann (20-7 MMA, 11-6 UFC) in the main event, which aired on FOX Sports 1 from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
After 15 minutes of competitive action, the former interim UFC welterweight champion stopped “The Hitman” early in the fourth round with a flurry of strikes.
The co-main event saw Rafael dos Anjos (20-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) remind everyone why he is a name to remember in the lightweight division with a clear-cut decision victory over Donald Cerrone (20-6 MMA, 7-3 UFC). Several other fighters also performed admirably on the undercard.
It was a more-than-worthwhile fight card to get MMA fans through hump day, and several notable figures emerged. With the help of FightMetric, it’s time to recap 25 post-event facts to come out of UFC Fight Night 27.
