Sanchez vs Kampmann at UFC on VS 3 in March

A bout between welterweight contenders Diego Sanchez (22-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) and Martin Kampmann (17-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) is set for UFC on Versus 3 and likely will headline the show. ( today confirmed the booking with sources close to the fighter.

The Versus-televised event takes place Thursday, March 3, though a location and venue haven't been finalized.

It'll be the first UFC on Versus show of 2011. As part of the UFC-WEC merger, Zuffa LLC signed a deal with Versus to air four UFC shows on the all-sports cable station in 2011. Two aired this year as part of an inaugural deal between the two.

Sanchez, the winner of the original season of "The Ultimate Fighter," recently returned to the welterweight division after a solid run at lightweight. However, after a title loss to B.J. Penn and with a rematch unlikely, the Greg Jackson-trained moved back up to welterweight, where he dropped a unanimous decision to John Hathaway at UFC 114. However, he rebounded in October and topped Paulo Thiago via unanimous decision to get back in the win column.

Kampmann, meanwhile, looks to rebound from a close and somewhat controversial split-decision defeat to UFC newcomer (and former Strikeforce champ) Jake Shields at UFC 121 in October. Prior to the co-main-event loss, Kampmann, a former middleweight contender, posted a 4-1 record in the welterweight division with wins over notables such as Carlos Condit, Jacob Volkmann and Thiago.
