UFC Fight Night 18 to be held at The Sommet Center in Nashville, TN

The UFC will hold UFC Fight Night 18 at the Sommet Center in Nashville, TN on April 1st. The UFC had made it known that they would head to Tennessee in 2009; however, a venue had not been decided upon.

Earlier this morning Sommet Center representatives spoke to PRO MMA (http://promma.info) and confirmed the news.

UFN 18 has been rumored to be headlined by WEC Welterweight champion Carlos Condit taking on Martin Kampmann. Condit’s debut in the Octagon would also be Kampmann’s entry into the 170 pound division.

Is the WEC preparing to add female weight classes?

It appears that WEC Welterweight Champion, Carlos Condit, could be getting a transfer to the UFC. Parent company, Zuffa, owns both promotions.

The decision to move Condit to the UFC comes on the heels of his scheduled opponent for WEC 39 set for March 1, Brock Larson, having to pull out of the fight due to injury. Condit’s first UFC appearance could be a SPIKE TV televised main event versus Martin Kampmann at UFC Fight Night 18 in Nashville, TN.

The same report indicates that the WEC will most likely go ahead and disband their entire welterweight division which would make sense if they are moving the champion to a different organization. Since Zuffa owns both promotions, UFC and WEC, it appears they are wanting to cut out all coinciding weight classes. The WEC already shut down their light heavyweight and middleweight classes and transferred most of their top fighters from those divisions to the UFC, so it appears the move with Condit fits right into the master plan.
