StunGun would have a ton of trouble taking him down and get wrecked standing. It is a terrible matchup for him because Kampmann can nullify basically all of his strengths.
I read an interview somewhere of Kims where he talks about training with Kapmann in America and he politely implies he was beating his ass in sparring.
so I can guarantee this fight would be much much closer than you think.
i remember he was also asked who he thought would win the Shield vs Kapmann fight and he was leaning towards Shields because Kapmanns wrestling wasn't that good.
