Kampmann is great but he does tend to get hit, and Hendricks has the base to keep it standing and land big shots. I think a Hendricks (T)KO is the most sensible choice.

I'd love to see Martin score another KO, his last fight was one of the more satisfying this year. Not betting on this one.

Kampmann with out point Hendricks here, even if he gets tagged early he will take the last few rounds. I just find it hard to pick the guy who's only shot is the single big punch.

Skill wise, I personally think that Kampmann is the number two or three Welterweight. The problem is, his fight IQ is among some of the worst I've seen and he's had a string of good circumstance with his wins over Alves and Ellenberger. I think Hendricks mixes in power punches with solid clinchwork to take the UD, as Kampmann will probably try and grapple with Hendricks, given his past history.

Kampmann is the better overall fighter but his defensive striking is horrid. I think he can win but its also likely that he gets caught.

Pretty tough one to call, Kampmann is better technically, atleast on offense but his defense absolutely sucks and that'll cost him sooner or later.

Hendricks KO.

I hope Kampmann convincingly takes this but I got a feeling Henricks will beat Kampmann.

Hendricks is basically a prototype of Ellenberger. They're both virtually the same fighter, I think Ellenberger is the better of the two though and I think he actually hits harder out of the two, as well as being the more technical striker.

I know MMAmath is BS n all, but if Kampmann can take out Ellenberger and can take his best shots, he should be fine in dealing with Hendricks.

Hendricks has power, but it's not like he's a Paul Daley. Daley is a guy that has the power and the striking technique, hence why Kampmann had no answer for his striking. Martin should be able to out-strike Hendricks with more technical striking and if it goes to the ground, I feel Kampmann will have no problems sweeping, getting back up or possibly locking up a guillotine.

Wait, is it opposite day?

Edit: Actually, that would explain a lot...

Why are people acting like Hendricks is a striker? Hendricks is going to wrestle Kampmann. Ellenberger has more power and is a better striker than Hendricks and eventually got put away standing; Hendricks isn't stupid.

He will try to wrestle his way to a decision where Kampmann gets ****ed over nonstop. Skill wise Kampmann has the advantage but Hendricks is very game. I would lean toward either Kampmann rocking and submitting him or clearly winning two rounds and losing the decision. I wouldn't be surprised if Hendricks could win two with his wrestling though.
