Veteran UFC welterweight Chris Lylte (27-17-5 MMA, 6-9 UFC) and former WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit (22-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will meet at UFC Fight Night 19 in September.

The news was first reported by Ariel Helwani of MMA FanHouse, and a source close to one of the competitors today confirmed with ( that bout agreements have been finalized.

UFC Fight Night 19, a Spike TV-broadcast event that serves as the lead-in for the debut episode of "The Ultimate Fighter 10," takes place on Sept. 16 at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

The UFC recently announced a main event of Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Guillard and a co-headliner of Roger Huerta vs. Gray Maynard for the show. The Lytle vs. Condit matchup is expected to be part of the night's televised main card, as well.

Lytle, fresh off a "Fight of the Night" victory over Kevin Burns at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale, has won two of his past three fights, the lone loss coming to Marcus Davis via split decision. Lytle continued his recent windfall by picking up his third straight "Fight of the Night" bonus and fourth overall. In fact, including fight-night bonuses for submissions and knockouts, he's won six bonuses in his past eight fights.
