The UFC announced a pivotal welterweight bout today via Twitter, slated for the UFC 132 card in Las Vegas on Independence Day weekend:

New bout for ufc 132 - @carloscondit vs @stungunkim

Former WEC welterweight king, Carlos Condit (26-5, 3-1 UFC) is coming off an outstanding performance at UFC 120 last fall, where he KOd British bad boy, Dan Hardy in the first round.  Many argue that despite an impressive record, Condit hasn't fought the stiffest competition available, but he'll certainly have his hands full in July.

Korean standout, Dong Hyun Kim (16-0 1 NC, 5-0, 1 NC UFC) remains undefeated in the Octagon after recently thwarting the submission attack of Nate Diaz with a smothering top control game at UFC 125 on New Years Day. 

The winner of this bout should certainly be in line for title contention, perhaps facing perennial contender Jon Fitch in a title eliminator, depending on the result of the welterweight title fight in Toronto later this month.

The current UFC 132 card:

-Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber
-Carlos Condit vs. Dong Hyun Kim
-Wanderlei Silva vs. Chris Leben
-Tito Ortiz vs. Ryan Bader
-Matt Wiman vs. Dennis Siver
-Erik Koch vs. Cub Swanson
-Melvin Guillard vs. Shane Roller
-Evan Dunham vs. George Sotiropoulos
