UFC 139: Martin Kampmann gets back on track with a Split Decision victory over Rick StoryPosted on November 19, 2011, 09:18 PM by Anton Gurevich
Kampmann displayed improved wrestling skills, managing to stay in control throughout the fight. Story was "spamming" a wild right hook during the fight, but Kampmann managed to stay away from getting knocked out, responding with superb takedown ability and good positioning on the ground.
Story went full throttle during the last seconds of the fight, scoring two takedowns and a few ground and pound moments. However, in a moment that pretty much summarized the fight, it was Kampmann who got himself into a dominant position by getting The Horror's back. Saved by the bell.
In the end, Kampmann scores a Split Decision victory, as one of the judges had Story winning 29-28 on his scorecards. The Dane is now 18-5 in MMA, with sights on moving closer to a shot at the UFC Welterweight strap.
