Can Diego stay out of trouble standing? Will he be able to takedown Kampmann and control him?
I don't freaking know but I am psyched to see it!!!
He dominated Shields in the clinch I doubt he is worried about fighting Diego there. Kampmann will take Diego down and beat on him for a minute plus at least twice in this fight. Kampmann is a better grappler than Diego. You don't sweep Shields half a dozen times and maintain top control on him for a minute while being active if you are just a good grappler.
Diego needs to time outside shots well and sit in Kampmann's guard trying to be active enough to not get stood up if he wants to win this fight. You can't be overly aggressive against a guy who is bigger, stronger, and better than you at everything and expect to win you need to fight tactically. If he fights like he usually fights he will make a bunch of mistakes that Kampann will exploit and use to finish him.
