Jared Hamman will look to rebound from a knockout loss to Constantinos Philippou when he meets Michael Kuiper at UFC 150. Hamman (13-4) is 2-3 in five fights with the UFC, defeating C.B. Dollaway last year and Rodney Wallace in 2010. Meanwhile, Kuiper (11-1) suffered his first career defeat when Rafael Natal scored a decision over him earlier this year in his UFC debut.
Hamman confirmed the match-up via Twitter, adding his excitement over fighting “three miles from my house.” The bout is scheduled for the prelim portion of the lineup.
UFC 150 is scheduled to take place August 11 in Denver, Colorado. The main event will feature a rematch between champion Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar for the lightweight title.
