UFC on Versus 3: Sanchez vs. Kampann” official for March 3 in Louisville
As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported this past month and officials today formally announced, “UFC on Versus 3: Sanchez vs. Kampann” takes place March 3 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville.
The Versus-televised event features co-headliners of Diego Sanchez (22-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) vs. Martin Kampmann (17-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) and Mark Munoz (9-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) vs. C.B. Dollaway (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC).
The event’s main card airs live on Versus. It’s the first of four 2011 shows expected to air on the cable station.
“Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann of Xtreme Couture MMA Camp are two fighters who always go for broke, so this should be a great fight,” UFC President Dana White stated. “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.”
The KFC Yum! Center hosts a variety of sporting and entertainment events and is the primary home of the University of Louisville’s mens and women’s basketball teams. The arena holds up to 22,000 fans, though it’s likely that a smaller seating configuration would be used with a UFC event.
Tickets for the event go on sale next week.
