Just establishing my point that Kampmann's fight IQ is absurdly low. He did just about everything wrong in this fight, and deserved to lose.
He tends to get in "his zone" when he's fighting.
You are right about the Marquardt fight, but we could argue Marquardt is a beast at MW.
But i fully agree on Daley - qorst game plan...or game plan execution ever.
And against Shields - he hurt him bad on the feet and when Shields dropped to the ground he followed him. Why not stand back and let the guy get up and hurt him again. That was a stupid thing to do. And it cost him the fight.

Against Sanchez he had a perfect first round: he hurt Diego again and again...stayed outsied of Diego's punching range, stuffed TDs.
And in the second and third he played Diego's game. It's like he forgot everything about what he did in the first round, because Diego didn't get any superpowers after the first round. He was the same guy, but with a bloodied-beat-up face.

Fighting smart is not something you have to be ashamed of. The most important thing is winning.
You win, you get bigger fights. Bigger fights can bring you title shots, more money. You hear Kampmann talking about GSP and title. He talked about GSP 2-3 days before the Sanchez fight.
A lot of people will say Kampmann won the fight. It may be. But in th record books it will always be an *L* next to Kampmann's name and he won't change that.

Forget that shit! Focus on your fight. Take it one step at a time. Stop chasing unicorns!

Lytle talked about GSP before Ebersole and that turned out well for him also.

Diego needs to be tested for a drug called CHARLIE SHEEN.

That was Kampmans fight to lose and he did. He let Diego steal it.

I personally think that he could have finished the fight in the first round. He was messing Sanchez up. I would bet that Kampmann could outgrapple Diego if he would have taken the fight to the ground as well. It's not even really a matter of Kampmann going for the finish, as much as it was about him lacking killer instinct, and getting too comfortable. If he would have at least tried to finish Diego, I think he would have gotten the decision.
Sanchez doesn't get finished.

He threatened Fitch constantly off his back and one of Diego's strongest points is that he's very, very goo din scrambles. Had he went down with him Diego would've either constantly threatened from his back and steal the round (or make it look a lot mroe competitive) or could've shaken Kamp off and got on top or taken his back during a scramble. Why go down into a world with questions like that when you have such an obvious and devastating advantage standing?

Looks to me Kampmann had the right game plan becuse he clearly won that fight. Must be frustrating for him to get robbed twice in a row...

Dont forget that Daley took the fight on like 2 weeks notice or less? You know, I actually think kampmann didnt even really know who Daley was coming into that fight, I think he thought he was just some okay fighter. He should have done his home work.

Kampmann won the fight. Kampmann should try moving his head when he is in the pocket.

He didn't get robbed twice in a row. He had too much confidence in grappling with Shields which is something a fighter other than GSP and maybe Fitch, at 170, doesn't do.

Why are some of you are making it seem easy that Kampmann could have just put Diego away, which isn't that easy. Diego just doesn't quit like that unless a fighter concusses him.

How can you forget the time he turned the top of Clay Guida's head into a side of roast beef with his elbows.

I had never seen before or since someone do so much damage off his back the way Diego did to Guida.
