Having put in a solid performance at UFC 138, when he subbed the then undefeated Papy Abedi, Thiago Pitbull is already lined up for his next engagement in the octagon. The Brazilian will take on Denmark’s Martin Kampmann on March 3 at UFC on FX 2, which will be broadcast live on FX channel in the USA from a venue yet to be confirmed.

“The fight between Martin ‘The Hitman’ Kampmann and Thiago ‘Pitbull’ Alves has been verbally agreed to,” confirmed UFC president Dana White.

Known for his aggressive style, Pitbull has 19 career wins, of which 11 came by way of knockout.

Now Kampmann is coming off a split-decision win over Rick Story at UFC 139 and boasts 18 victories on his record. The Xtreme Couture representative has already beaten Brazilians Paulo Thiago, Alexandre Baixinho and Thales Leite, not to mention the fact that he has never been finished in his eight-year career.
