Carlos Condit vs Hiromitsu Miura WEC welterweight title fight August 3

Carlos Condit Hiromitsu Miura
WEC Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit -- who is in Sacramento, Calif., this weekend to sign autographs for the "Faber vs. Pulver" event -- is expected to put his 170-pound title on the line against Hiromitsu Miura (9-4) at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on August 3.

It will be the third title fight of the evening, joining the lightweight showdown between 155-pound champion Jamie Varner against Marcus Hicks, as well as the 205-pound tile between WEC Light Heavyweight Champion Brian Stann and challenger Steve Cantwell.

Condit is clearly among the best welterweight fighters in the world. "The Natural Born Killer" has won his last four WEC contests -- all via submission -- and only one of them made it past the first round. Condit most recently avenged a loss to Carlos Prater at WEC 32 in his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M., and will look to add Miura to his hitlist in August.

Miura, on the other hand, is on a two-fight win streak in the WEC, defeating Blas Avena (knockout) and Fernando Gonzalez via submission (strikes) in back-to-back fights. He has just one loss since 2006 (Jason "Mayhem" Miller).

Miura is very well rounded and is a stiff test for the champion.

WEC 35 is shaping up to be a "Night of Champions" event with three WEC titles expected to be up for grabs on August 3. These fights -- and more -- should all be made official later on this evening during the WEC 34: "Faber vs Pulver" on Versus at 9 p.m. ET.

Stay tuned for more details and fight card updates.
