Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back on FOX Sports 1 for the second time this month, bringing fights from the "Circle City" with UFC Fight Night 27: "Condit vs Kampmann 2," LIVE from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Headlining the card is a rematch from a 2009 scrap between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann. Condit was making his Octagon debut back then and lost a split decision to the former middleweight contender. Since that fight, Condit has held the interim Welterweight belt, while Kampmann has fallen to the mid-card.
However, kicking off the night is an absolutely STACKED "Prelims" card that features some of the best up-and-coming names in the UFC.
The Facebook "Prelims" kick off at 5 p.m. ET and then the fights move over to Fox Sports 2 (formerly FUEL TV) at 6 p.m. ET.
Doctor waves off fight. Bowling wanted to continue. Was KO'd. Fell down after getting up. Has to be protected from himself. #UFCFightNight— Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) August 28, 2013
Man brutal illegal knee from Trujillo. The first hit the body but second was blatant to the head— Brian Hemminger (@BrianHemminger) August 28, 2013
Rob Hinds better handle this foul situation well if he wants to finally get ROI on all the refereeing seminar emails he send out.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) August 28, 2013
Very illegal knee from Abel Trujillo, blasted Bowling in the face as he was very much down on the ground. Bowling is hurt #UFC— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) August 28, 2013
I love this ref because they is the tiniest man ever. http://t.co/TNa9cRHhFp— Matthew Roth (@MattRoth512) August 28, 2013
Nice finish there from Cummings, he never gave Alloway any room to breathe before getting the tap— Brian Hemminger (@BrianHemminger) August 28, 2013
7 yrs ago if you told me that someone would name their kid after @sonnench I'd have called you an idiot. Another testament to his turnaround— TJ De Santis (@TJDeSantis) August 28, 2013
If you don't get FOX Sports 2 but do get FOX Sports 1, just received a note that the second hour of prelims will simulcast on both channels.— John Morgan (@MMAjunkieJohn) August 28, 2013

Nice work by @KCBanditMMA!!! Made it look easy.— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) August 28, 2013
Great fight so far between Elkins and Hioki. I have it even through rd 2 but Elkin's starting to take over #UFN27— Sarah Kaufman (@mmasarah) August 28, 2013
MMA fans: 'A round a piece.' MMA judges: '2 ROUNDS TO ELKINS HEHE!'— MiddleEasy (@MiddleEasy) August 28, 2013
Great start for Hioki but faded and couldn't get off his back in 3rd. Will probably cost him a decision. #UFCFightNight— Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) August 28, 2013
Classic Hioki in the third. Is it going to cost him again?— Greg Savage (@TheSavageTruth) August 28, 2013
Sigh, Hatsu...— Mike Fagan (@ItsMikeFagan) August 28, 2013
Man, Thatch is something special. That's 9 first round wins in a row for "Rukus."— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) August 28, 2013
Thatch had plenty of hype coming in to his debut, and yeah, he lived up to it.— Bleacher Report MMA (@BR_MMA) August 28, 2013
Thatch vs. Edwards was the NOS commercial in a parallel universe.— MiddleEasy (@MiddleEasy) August 28, 2013
Brandon Thatch just did his thing and Justin Edwards didn't. I mean he did. He lost. http://t.co/TNa9cRHhFp— Matthew Roth (@MattRoth512) August 28, 2013
Yep, the Brandon Thatch war wagon is rumbling, and Justin Edwards just got run over. First-round mauling. #UFCFightNight— Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) August 28, 2013
Thatch is how it's done. OK, I'll stop.— Erik Fontanez (@Erik_Fontanez) August 28, 2013
Papy Abedi was looking like a man ready to call it a night. Then Dylan Andrews was all like, here, let me help you with that.— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) August 28, 2013
Comeback Kid!!!— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) August 28, 2013
I guess punches to the back of the head are cool now.— Mike Fagan (@ItsMikeFagan) August 28, 2013
i feel like someone just explained what a guillotine is to Papy Abedi right before this fight, maybe using a diagram— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) August 28, 2013
Papy Abedi just made the same face a man makes when he gets kicked in the head by a horse. Indianans can appreciate that.— Jonathan Snowden (@mmaencyclopedia) August 28, 2013
