CONDIT-KAMPMANN 5-ROUND REMATCH HEADLINES "UFC FIGHT NIGHT" ON FOX SPORTS 1

UFC(R) BOUTS ACROSS FOX SPORTS 1, FOX SPORTS 2 & FOX DEPORTES LEAD INTO SEASON 18 PREMIERE OF THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER SEPT. 4

Charlotte, NC - Coming off strong viewership numbers from its debut on FOX Sports 1, America's new sports network, UFC FIGHT NIGHT rolls into Indianapolis with a thrilling Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) card headlined by a much-anticipated, five-round welterweight rematch between former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit and Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann LIVE Wednesday, Aug. 28 on FOX Sports 1 & FOX Deportes (8:00 PM ET).

"It'll be a fantastic fight between two of the most aggressive and talented welterweights in the world," said Kenny Florian, who calls the fights with UFC on FOX teammate Jon Anik. "Both are excellent finishers, excellent on the ground with phenomenal striking games. They're also similar in that they get a lot of knockouts using their knees."

According to Florian, Condit has been putting in extra work on his ground game to prepare for Kampmann this time around.

"Kampmann probably won their last match with his wrestling, as the takedowns were likely the difference," Florian added. "Condit has been working on his wrestling a lot these last few months and because of that, I have Condit as the slight favorite heading into this one."

The television week gets started Tuesday, Aug. 27 (7:00 PM ET) with the UFC WEIGH-IN SHOW on FOX Sports 2 from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN. Karyn Bryant hosts, with analysis from the loquacious Chael Sonnen and former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, along with backstage reporting from three-time MMA Journalist of the Year Ariel Helwani.

On-set interviews with Condit (28-7-0) and Kampmann (20-6-0) highlight an evening of insight and analysis of all of the fights leading to the main event.

On Wednesday, Aug. 28, the evening gets started with the UFC PRE-FIGHT SHOW on FOX Sports 2, with Bryant, Sonnen, Evans and Helwani manning their posts. The program features a profile on Condit, interviews with Kampmann, fighter Kelvin Gastelum and UFC President Dana White, as well as a FOX Sports Strikezone breakdown of the Condit-Kampmann rematch, which ended with Kampmann scoring a split-decision victory in 2009.

Preliminary bouts begin at 6:00 PM ET on FOX Sports 2, with the main card moving to FOX Sports 1 at 8:00 PM ET.

FOX Deportes, the leader in U.S. Latino sports media, begins LIVE fight coverage at 7:00 PM ET with longtime UFC commentator Victor Davila and No. 3 ranked UFC heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum calling the action.
