UFC Fight Night 27 takes place Wednesday night with Carlos Condit vs Martin Kampmann set to light the Octagon alight in an eagerly anticipated rematch. The main fight card takes place from 8 p.m. ET with preliminaries taking place before that. All the action can be watched online through UFC live stream (details below).
Condit and Kampmann fought back in April 2009 in an exciting and entertaining encounter, and many have been awaiting this rematch. Both fighters always have individual exciting matches, so when they come together there should definitely be some fireworks.
Kampmann will be looking to impose his precise, accurate technical striking on his opponent today. However, Condit will be a handful and is the favorite for this bout in many people's eyes.
Kampmann will surely be looking to take the fight to his opponent from the outside, and slowly pick off his big strikes. However, Condit isn't the kind of opponent to sit back and allow that to happen; he is known for his explosive power, and has caused problems to all his opponents in the division for his strength and aggression.
Others on the main card include Donald Cerrone vs Rafael dos Anjos, and even though it has not been billed up that big, this should be a great fight. Cerrone has his eyes on another title push, but Anjos is making his first drive for a title shot and he knows how important it is to gain wins against opponents like Cerrone.
Another exciting bout that catches the eye tonight is Kelvin Gastelum vs Brian Melancon. A bout featuring the most recent TUF winner who is just beginning his UFC career should be exciting for most fans who saw him in the TUF.
