Although it may have been announced June 9th, clearly they didn't follow through as seen in the Ellenberger-Sanchez fight.

After that fight took place immediately after Dana was interviewed by Helwani on FX and Dana said" We blew it, this fight should have been 5 rounds all fights from now on that are main events will be 5 rounds except for the fights that have contracts with 3 rounds already."

Hope that clears things up for you.

I think Alves is a little overrated.

He hasn't KO'd or even rocked anyone much since Matt Hughes and that was 4 years ago.

He is a very good fighter, but on the feet he has trouble, and that is his bread and butter. His kicks are nasty, but his hands aren't all that great.

I think it is a close ass fight though. Should be a 3 round battle.

He looked stellar in the John Howard fight and he landed a two punch combo that dropped Abedi.

I like Kampmann by KO maybe the second. But wouldn't be surprised by any result, except maybe Kampmann takedown and sub. Might see Alves shoot in this fight though.

you cant say that every fighter would be better off fighting at their natural weight, sometimes the body prefers the size vs. the endurance.. sometimes the fighter mentally needs the extra strength.. sometimes their style is better off with more strength vs endurance as well.. this is purely fighter dependent...

IF Kampmann can keep the distance and stay technical he wins a decision... If he can't Alves could very well TKO him.

Kampmann could also whip out a suprising guillotine - you never know

This would be Kampmann's biggest win in quite some time should he pull it off

Im thinking that Alves got this. And it would be great to see him going for the title again.

Aslong as Alves can stay the hell away from the cage and shrug off the takedowns he should beat the hell out of Kampmann but I don't know. Both guys are known for ******* up big time during fights.

Here's hoping Alves scores a TKO/KO and not a decision win, as I have no interest in listening to Kampmann complain about how he thought he won the fight.

Hoping Kampmann wins since he is a more challenging opponent for most of the top WWs. There is a book on how to beat Alves which is why guys like Fitch and Story end up outstriking him in rounds even when he has superior power and technique.
