Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann are now confirmed to do battle in early March at the second UFC on FX event.
MMAWeekly.com first broke the news about Alves and Kampmann facing off, with a date of March 3 for the event. At the time, no schedule had been released, but the UFC has now confirmed the bout and the show that it will air on.
UFC on FX 2 will house the Alves vs. Kampmann fight, with the date tentatively scheduled for March 3. No venue or location has been determined yet for the show.
Alves and Kampmann face off in a pivotal welterweight match-up between two former title contenders who both want to get back in the race.
Alves is coming off a dominant submission win over Papy Abedi in his last fight, while Kampmann got by Rick Story to win at UFC 139 in San Jose, Calif.
Now the two welterweights will square off in what should be a “Fight of the Night” candidate in March on the FX Network.
