Martin Kampann (17-3) will make his welterweight debut at UFC 93 on January 17th in Dublin, Ireland against an opponent to be determined, Five Ounces of Pain reported today.

A middleweight up-and-comer, Kamp mann reeled off nine-straight victories between 2005 and 2008, including four-straight wins over Crafton Wallace, Thales Leites, Drew McFedries, and Jorge Rivera to begin his UFC career. However, he was prompted to drop to welterweight after being dismantled by middleweight contender Nate Marquardt via strikes in just 82-seconds at UFC 88 in September.

Kampann joins Dan Henderson vs. Rich Franklin, Mark Coleman vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Marcus Davis vs. Chris Lytle, Alan Belcher vs. Denis Kang, Jeremy Horn vs. Rousimar Palhares, Thomasz Drwal vs. Ivan Serati, Nate Mohr vs. Denis Siver, Andre Gusmao vs. Antonio Mendes, Abdul Mohamed vs. TBA, and Tom Egan vs. John Hathaway on the rumored lineup for the pay-per-view broadcast event.
