Less than 24 hours after the WEC officially scrapped a March 1 co-main event between welterweight champion Carlos Condit (22-4) and challenger Brock Larson (24-2), the organization may be taking the preliminary steps in eliminating the entire 170-pound division.

Sources close to the event have alerted ( that Condit has signed on for an April 1 main-event bout with Martin Kampmann (14-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC). first reported the possibility of the bout for UFC Fight Night 18, tentatively scheduled for Nashville, Tenn.


Kampmann will be making his second appearance in the UFC's welterweight division. Despite cutting little -- if any -- weight in previous contests, the Danish striker compiled a 4-1 record in the organization's middleweight division. The Xtreme Couture fighter elected to drop to welterweight after a September 2008 loss to Nate Marquardt at UFC 88.

Kampmann earned a second-round TKO win over UFC newcomer Alexandre Barros earlier this month at UFC 93 in his first bout in the 170-pound division.
