A welterweight battle is set to headline the UFC’s second show on the premiering FOX Sports 1 network as Carlos Condit will square off with Martin Kampmann. FOX Sports first reported news of the rematch earlier today.
Condit and Kampmann first met in “The Natural Born Killer’s” UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 18, with the Danish fighter picking up a hard-fought split decision. Talk of a rematch has gone on since their first meeting in 2009, with Condit amassing a 5-2 record since the first meeting and Kampmann running a tally of 5-4.
Both fighters are coming off losses to number one contender Johny Hendricks in their previous outings, albeit the methods of defeat were substantially different. Condit would engage in an exciting battle with the former Oklahoma State Cowboy at UFC 158, while Kampmann was crushed only 46-seconds into the fight with Hendricks at UFC 154.
UFC on FS1 2 will take place August 28 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. More information is expected on the card in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale for the August show on June 14.
