The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed today through an official announcement that WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit will indeed be making the jump over to the organization. The New Mexico native will headline UFC Fight Night 18 against Martin Kampmann.

Condit defeated John Alessio to capture the vacant WEC welterweight title in March 2007 and went on to successfully defend the belt three straight times. His last title defense was a hard-fought fourth-round stoppage of Hiromitsu Miura at WEC 35 this past August.

After winning four out of five fights in the UFC’s middleweight division, Kampmann opted to drop down to welterweight and was victorious in his 170 lb debut, scoring a second-round TKO win over Alexandre Barros at UFC 93 on January 17.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official list of medical suspensions stemming from last night’s World Extreme Cagefighting 35 event, which took place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Carlos Condit will be sidelined until September 3rd because of lacerations suffered on his left eyebrow and lip while his opponent in Sunday night’s highly praised main event, Hiromitsu Miura, could be forced to sit out until January of next year because of apparent fractures suffered to his nose and left orbital bone. However he can be permitted to return earlier if cleared by a doctor.

Brian Stann, Marcus Hicks, Carlo Prater, Dave Terrel, and Micah Miller, who all suffered TKO losses in their bouts, have also all been medically suspended due to precautionary reasons until either September 3rd or 18th respectively.

Carlos Condit and Jamie Varner retained their respective World Extreme Cagefighting titles Sunday night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas while former U.S. Marine Brian Stann was defeated in a light heavyweight championship rematch against hometown favorite Steve Cantwell.

Coming into the show’s main event, Condit was expected to encounter his toughest test to date against Hiromitsu Miura, who has become known as a formidable opponent in past fights courtesy of his slick judo throws and heavy hands. Miura provided quite the test for Condit, who was put into dangerous predicaments throughout the course of the fight.

After preventing Miura’s inital judo throw attempt in the first round, Condit found himself being slammed onto the canvas just moments later, only to return the favor to Miura later on in a sign of things to come. Flurries of punches and submission exchanges between the two were prominent throughout the first fifteen minutes of the bout, which saw Condit ahead on the judge’s scorecards going into the championship rounds.
