Former top middleweight contender Martin Kampmann (13-2) could make his welterweight debut against Octagon newcomer Alexandre Barros (13-5) at UFC 93: “Franklin vs. Henderson” at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, on January 17, acoording to MMA Insider Blog.

The “Hitman” recently had his nine-fight win streak snapped after getting wrecked by Nate Marquardt in short order via bruising first round technical knockout at UFC 88: “Breakthrough” back in September. It was apparently a wake up call for the Danish kickboxer that perhaps he is better suited to compete in a division 15 pounds lighter.

Don't think it's the same guy, but I could be wrong. He's a quality opponent training out of Gracie Bara (which seems to be putting out some quality fighters as of late).

Good standup and GnP but surprisingly isn't really a submission guy. He's lost earlier in his career against Aaron Riley and Matt Hughes but has improved a lot since then. He's a scary looking dude, kind of built like Palhares. Should be a good test, and win or lose I think we'll see Barros again.
