Paulo Thiago confirms the fight against "The Hitman" Kampmann at UFC 115Posted on March 11, 2010, 05:06 AM by Anton Gurevich
Top 10 Welterweight Paulo Thiago confirmed in an interview to Tatame.com that he will be fighting the Danish contender Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann at UFC 115. Twenty-nine year old Thiago made his Octagon debut at UFC 95, by impressively knocking out Josh Koscheck in the first round of the fight.
“He’s a tough guy. If I win this fight, it will be a new step in my career. He did a great fight against Jacob Volkmann. He’s a top ranked fighter, which makes it a very good fight for me.”
UFC 115 will take place on June 12th, but it is still unclear whether it will be in Vancouver, due to the lack of regulations in place to promote the sport professionally. Third part of the Liddell vs Ortiz saga is expected to headline the event, with Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Wanderlei Silva fight as the co-main event of the evening.
