UFC on Versus 3The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Thursday made its Bluegrass State debut official. The promotion will head to the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., on March 3.

Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann headline the UFC on Versus 3 fight card in a welterweight showdown. A middleweight co-main event matching up rising talents Mark Munoz and C.B. Dollaway is also official for the fight card, which will air on the Versus sports network.

Sanchez enters the bout on the heels of a Fight of the Night victory over Paulo Thiago at UFC 121. Kampmann is looking to bounce back after losing his last bout to No. 1 welterweight contender Jake Shields.

“Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann are two fighters who always go for broke, so this should be a great fight,” UFC president Dana White said in announcing UFC on Versus 3. “Both of these guys feel they belong at the top of the welterweight division and they’ll have a chance to prove it on March 3. The same goes for Munoz and Dolloway. They push the pace and look to finish fights and both want to fight the best middleweights out there. We’re really excited to bring a card like this to Louisville.”

Tickets for UFC on Versus 3 go on Jan. 14.
