The UFC added a trio of interesting fights to its busy summer schedule on Wednesday.

Jake Ellenberger will meet Martin Kampmann in a five-round main event at the TUF Live Finale on June 1, UFC officials announced.

The welterweight clash could very well produce the next No. 1 contender in the 170-pound division after champion Georges St-Pierre and interim champion Carlos Condit unify the belts later this year.

The TUF Live Finale, which will also feature the finals of the 15th season of The Ultimate Fighter, will air live on FX and is expected to take place in Las Vegas. No venue has been announced for the event, thus far.

Ellenberger (27-5) most recently defeated Diego Sanchez via unanimous decision last month, while Kampmann (19-5) submitted Thiago Alves with a guillotine with just 48 seconds remaining in their UFC on FX 2 fight earlier this month.

In other UFC news, the organization announced that UFC 148, scheduled for July 7 in Las Vegas, will feature the 170-pound debut of Demian Maia against Dong Hyun Kim, plus hard-hitting Costa Philippou will meet Riki Fukuda in middleweight action.
