Campbell won the title back in 2014 when he defeated Juan Puerta by KO/TKO in the opening minute of the fifth round. Since then, Campbell ran short of quality contenders in the division. The only contender worthy to challenge for the 135 lb. title was Campbell’s teammate, Manny Bermudez.
Bermudez was intended to battle for the vacated 135 lb. title at Cage Titans 37 before signing with the UFC. Unfortunately, due to a fight week withdrawal from his opponent, Bermudez did not challenge for the title and instead fought Seth Basler on short notice. Campbell retained the belt due to the circumstance.
