A welterweight bout has been added to UFC Fight Night in Indianapolis on August 28th as Jason High will meet James Head.
UFC officials announced the fight booking overnight and this fight completes the 13 fight card.
UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann II will come from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on August 28th and will be headlined by a welterweight bout as former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit faces Martin Kampmann.
Head (9-3) was originally scheduled to face Bobby Voelker on this card but Voelker was recently moved to the UFC of FOX 8 card to face Robbie Lawler. Head has gone 2-2 in the UFC and both of his wins in the promotion have come as a welterweight. He is coming off a first round TKO victory to Mike Pyle at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale and both of his UFC defeats have come by stoppage.
High (16-4) returned to the UFC earlier this year at UFC on FUEL TV 10 and was defeated by Erick Silva in the first round by submission. The defeat snapped a seven fight winning streak and it was his first defeat since 2010.
