The UFC will travel to Sydney, Australia, for the UFC on FX 2 fight card. The card, headlined by a main event between welterweight competitors Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann, will take place on Saturday, March 3 in Australia, but due to the differing time zones it will be broadcast in North American on Friday, March 2.
Alves and Kampmann will both look to capitalize on victories in their last bouts. Alves defeated UFC newcomer Papy Abedi in his last fight, while Kampmann is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Rick Story.
In addition to the main event, the card will feature the first two flyweight fights in the UFC's history as Joseph Benavidez takes on Yasuhiro Urushitani and Demetrious Johnson meets Ian McCall in the first round of the UFC flyweight tournament. The victors will meet at a later date, with the winner of that bout being crowned the UFC flyweight champion.
