If Ellenberger lands clean on Kampmann like he did to Diego in the first round Kampmann may never see the 3rd, 4th, and 5th.
Exactly, Diego probably has the best chin at 170 in my opinion and has only been finished by cut stoppage. The guy just doesn't quit. Kampmann doesn't have the chin or recovery rate of Sanchez (not saying Kampmann has a bad chin), and his pace won't be anywhere near the pace that Diego has. In other words, that's not a very good indicator on how Ellenberger vs. Kampmann may turn out. If Jake manages to hurt or drop him, this fight may not turn out very well for Martin. Jake isn't a great striker, but the power he has in his strikes makes up for that.
