image002Former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit (28-7, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) returns to the Octagon to face top contender Martin Kampmann (20-6, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.) on Wednesday, August 28 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind.  The two previously met in 2009, with Kampmann earning a razor-thin split decision. Now the two meet again to settle the score in the UFC’s first event in Indianapolis since UFC 119 in 2010.

“Two of the top-ranked welterweights in the division will collide when former interim UFC champion Carlos Condit meets Martin Kampmann in Indianapolis,” UFC President Dana White said. “Both of these guys love finishing fights, so this is gonna be a war!”

Also, fan favorite and sixth ranked lightweight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (20-5, 1 NC, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) faces resurgent Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos (19-6) in a battle that’s an early candidate for Fight of the Night honors. While Cerrone has long sat near the top of the divisional rankings, his recent showing against former Strikeforce standout KJ Noons brought him one step closer to a coveted shot at the title. Riding a four-fight win streak that includes notable victories over Evan Dunham and Mark Bocek, the tenth ranked Dos Anjos plans to derail “Cowboy’s” title train.

Also on the card, Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann (7-0) brings her unblemished record into the Octagon against former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Sarah Kaufman (16-2).

The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen winner Kelvin Gastelum (7-0) drops down to the welterweight division and squares off against Paulo Thiago (15-5).
