Swick-Kampmann at UFC 103?

Publish date:

A welterweight contest between Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann is likely for UFC 103, MMAWeekly.com has learned from sources close to the fight.

While bout agreements have not been signed, both parties have agreed to the matchup.

UFC 103 is expected to take place on Sept. 19 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, the promotion's second trip to the Lone Star State. The event has yet to be announced by the UFC.

Swick (14-2) is coming off an impressive victory over Ben Saunders at UFC 99. In a recent interview with Raw Vegas, he hoped for a bout with former champion Matt Hughes, but said Kampmann was a likely alternate.

"I want the Hughes fight, and we're trying to work it out, but it doesn't seem like it's happening, so it might be Kampmann," said Swick.

The 30-year-old American Kickboxing Academy standout said he expected to be in line for a title shot if he won his next fight.

Kampmann (15-2) recently dispatched Carlos Condit in the former WEC champion's UFC debut in April. The win was his second straight since dropping a quick TKO loss to Nate Marquardt at UFC 88 last September.

Earlier this month, the 27-year-old Dane turned down a last-minute offer to face T.J. Grant at The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 Finale when Rory Markham was forced to withdraw due to injury.
