Go here to view a full lineup of announced and rumored bouts.
“Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann are two fighters who always go for broke, so this should be a great fight,” UFC President Dana White is quoted as saying in the press release. “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.”
