Danzig/Wiman and Kampann/Thiago set for UFC 115

A welterweight matchup between Martin Kampmann and Paulo Thiago is currently in the works for UFC 115.

The potential bout was first reported by The Las Vegas Sun, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed that both fighters have verbally agreed to the fight, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

While not yet officially announced, UFC 115 is expected to take place June 12 at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. The night's main card airs on pay-per-view.

After suffering a deep laceration in training, Kampmann recently was forced to withdraw from a planned UFC 111 bout with Ben Saunders.

"We had to literally tell him he couldn't fight Saunders like that," Kampmann's agent, Ken Pavia, told MMAjunkie.com at the time. "He didn't want to pull out (of the fight)."

Kampmann, a former middleweight contender, looks to build on the momentum of a UFC 108 win over Jacob Volkmann in January. Although best known for his standup skills, Kampmann earned the win by submission, the sixth such victory of his career. Kampmann is now 3-1 in the UFC's 170-pound division; the lone came to Paul Daley this past September.

Meanwhile, Thiago (13-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) looks to build on the momentum of back-to-back UFC wins.

After shocking the world with a knockout win over Josh Koscheck in his UFC debut, Thiago then suffered a high-profile loss to Jon Fitch at UFC 100. The Brazilian, who moonlights as a special forces police officer, has since defeated Jacob Volkmann in a rather bland performance but then rebounded and submitted Mike Swick in a UFC 109 matchup that earned him the evening's "Submission of the Night" bonus.

Following Thiago's UFC 109 win over Swick, UFC president Dana White admitted he was impressed with the Brazilian's efforts.

"This guy just shot onto the scene," White said. "This guy's at the top of the 170-pound division; no doubt about it. He's a force to be reckoned with.

"Usually, when guys come into the UFC for the first time, they're real nervous, and this guy has got nerves of steel obviously because of what he does for a living. This is a hobby compared [to that]. We're very, very impressed with him."

Kamp/Thiago is sorta old news, but it's been finalized.

A lightweight match-up between Matt Wiman (11-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Mac Danzig (19-7-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC) is expected for UFC 115.

Sources close to the bout told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Tuesday that both fighters have agreed to meet one another and are expected to put pen to paper soon.

While not yet officially announced, UFC 115 is expected to take place June 12 at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. The night's main card airs on pay-per-view.

Wiman, 26, is back on the winning track following his most recent performance – a decision victory over Shane Nelson at UFC 107 this past December – which snapped a two-fight skid. The back-to-back decision losses to Sam Stout and Jim Miller were just the second time in his career that Wiman had suffered consecutive defeats. The first such occurrence was snapped by a four-fight win streak in the UFC.

Danzig, 30, also returned to the winner's circle when he defeated Justin Buchholz by decision in his most recent performance at UFC 108. The result was a much-needed boost after a three-fight slide to top lightweights Clay Guida, Josh Neer, and Jim Miller.

Danzig first took to the octagon as one of the most experienced fighters to appear on “The Ultimate Fighter” and won the show's season six tournament.

The placement of Wiman vs. Danzig on the UFC 115 fight card is unknown at this time.
