UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann, also referred to as UFC Fight Night 18, was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on April 1, 2009.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was broadcast on Spike TV and served as a lead in to the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom.[2]

This event was the UFC's first event in the state of Tennessee and it set the record in terms of attendance to date for both an MMA event in the state and a UFC Fight Night show.[3]
