UFC Fight Night 18 Breakdown: The Main Card - Introduction

Apr 1, 2009
When the UFC first rolled out the Fight Night experiment, I prayed to every available God that it would become the platform the sport so desperately needed to highlight both up-and-coming talent and deserving veterans.

After sitting through an inaugural Fight Night card that was marred by a premature stoppage and a trio of narcoleptic decisions, I made peace with the fact that the Gods had ignored me and that the grand experiment was in for some major retooling.

Thankfully, Wednesday’s event marks not only the UFC’s first show in Tennessee but also a return to form for the Fight Night experiment. Featuring a main event that pits outgoing WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit against Xtreme Couture blue-chipper Martin Kampmann, Joe Silva & Co. have booked a quality lineup that will play host to many of the UFC’s 25-and-under crowd.

So dust off the yarmulke, reach a state of Zen and get squared up on the knowledge front.
