Martin Kampmann Dominates Paulo Thiago At UFC 115

Martin Kampmann served a reminder of why he was within reach of a title shot at 170lbs not so long ago by outclassing Paulo Thiago at UFC 115.

It was clear early that Kampmann had Thiago’s number on the feet, beating the Brazilian’s wild looping strikes with crisp, accurate straight punches.

The surprising thing was that when the fight went to the mat Kampmann also bettered the Brazilian black belt, threatening several times with guillotine chokes and arm triangles.

By the final bell it was clear there was going to be only one winner and Kampmann picked up his second win in a row, moving to 17-3 in his career overall.

For Thiago this was a disappointing performance that indicates there’s still plenty of room for improvement in his game.
