+1

I'll give Diego credit for his convincing win over Paulo Thiago - but that type of performance won't be enough to get him past Kampmann

It's gonna be a close one. It can go either way. With Sanchez back in the GJ camp he's certainly reinvigorated.

Kampmann is by far the superior striker, but Sanchez has such a frantic work pace.

Not sold on Diego's rejuvenation just yet, Martin's gonna outstrike and outgrapple Diego for a late TKO or submission.

Nah, Diego seems revitalized. I think you're still going on his Hathaway fight - he was coming off a weight gain (LW to WW which is the biggest % gain of any two divisions) and coming off of one of the most brutal beat downs in UFC history.

Diego said a few weeks ago said he's stronger than he's ever been and a better wrestler than he's ever been at 195 lbs.

Kampmann's best shot is aggressive offensive grappling and setting up and getting the sub or winning a round methodically by jabs (which might be tough because Sanchez might want to brawl).

Kampmann's (overrated) stand-up is about the same level as Sanchez's IMO. As a kickboxer base - Kampmann doesn't kick. He has a nice jab, but no real punches in bunches. If Diego goes brawling which he's pretty good at, it's an even match up stand-up (IMO).

His biggest shot over Diego is aggressive offensive grappling.

If the Shields fight was any indication where Kampmann's cardio is, Diego will TKO him on the ground or (most likely) win a decision because of takedowns.

If it's even game after the first 2 rounds at Diego's pace, Diego's cardio dictates via stand-up or takedowns in the 3rd IMO.

Momentum is in Diego's favor as well.

This fight is awesome. Kampmann has the striking advantage but Diego is going to bring it like no other. The quesion will be can Kampmann keep it standing? Can he stay away from the clinch? Can he handle Diego's intensity?

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!!!

Kampman dealt nicely with Shields top game which is levels and LEVELS above Sanchez.


Sanchez has little chance, he is gonna get eaten up standing and on the ground he prob loses aswell. His pace and cardio are his only hopes but ive yet to see Kampman gas that bad.

Diego will deliver.

To compare their Thiago fights:

Thiago V Kampmann was basically a 3 round slooow jab attack by Kampmann and good takedown defense by Kampmann against awful takedown attempts.... then in the 3rd round some neutral grappling, weeeeeeak GnP by both fighters to finish the fight.

Thiago V Sanchez was fast paced. Diego lost the 1st round by a (have to pick a winner) small margin. But Diego dominated the 2nd, with an added pick up of Thiago over his head and walk around the ring with him screaming. 3rd round Diego delivered a solid beat down on him, one judge gave him a 10-8 on the 3rd.

Still can't deny Kampmann's awful cardio against Shields who had equally awful cardio during that fight.
