Close fight IMO, it could go either way, it will definately go the distance.
But i'm gonna say Sanchez by Spit decision.
I agree, close fight indeed. And theres a big chance they go the distance but Id love to see Kampmann finish Diego for the first time. Diego is a tough sob though.
You could be right. I think Kampmann is the more skilled fighter, with Sanchez only possible advantage in terms of skills being his wrestling. Kampmann has better striking and submissions and they are both solid wrestlers.
However, Sanchez is easily the more aggressive fighter and even if Kampmann is in excellent shape, I doubt he can match Diego's pace. Sanchez could win just by being aggressive and outworking Kampmann.
Diego's pace will be too much for Kampmann.
kampmann will control diego on the ground, thus neutralizing his pace. we saw how kampmann did with shields. mounted him and had that fight. kampmann by tko rd3
Great match up, but Kampmann will win. He got robbed by Shields and now he wants to make a statement against Sanchez. It doesnt matter that Diego is great fighter, but IMO Kampmann is just on another level. Late 3rd round TKO for hitman.
On another level? Martin kampmann is a tough, well rounded fighter, but he is not by any means going to outclass diego when they step in the octagon, diego has more heart than almost any other ufc fighter when hes on his game, and he is one of the most exciting fighters to watch, Kampmann got alot of hype built around him for doing so good when he fought jake shields, but lets not forget he was absolutely demolished by paul daley not too long ago, im goin with sanchez by hard fought decision
was an early stoppage. He was definitely hurt but he could have weathered that storm I think.
But put Sanchez in against Semtex and its probably gonna be the same thing if not worse. Its really hard to determine who has the better chin between Kampmann and Sanchez.
But one things for sure, Kampmann can outclass Sanchez with technique on the feet and jiu jitzu on the ground.
I got two words for ya, greg jackson
Ye, Diego has a lot of heart and great ground game. But Kampmanns ground game is always underrated. And I dont meant just that Shields fight. My point is, that I dont think that Diego is going to win with just heart and BJJ.
Kampmann is better on his feet and his submissions&wrestling; are too good for Diego.
Diego will decision this with his wrestling. Pretty easily to IMO.
too bad that Galvao wont fight sakara, would be fun to watch...
