I think his fighter IQ is alright. His gameplan was solid. Stick to the outside and outpoint Sanchez. However, I think he seriously underestimated Sanchez's willingness to be punched in the face to get inside and land his own punches. Sanchez also spent more time in the dominant clinch position than Kampmann. While Kampmann landed more punches overall. He landed fewer power punches per round, and only took rnd 1 definitively with the knockown. 3 obviously went to Sanchez for the takedown and relatively even striking. 2 was pretty even and to me would have gone to Kampmann (IMO) if he hadn't been cut that round.

The thing is, landing a jab over and over alone isn't enough to win any fight nowadays, when the opponent is landing as well. He landed a flush hook and got the knockdown in the first. but couldn't do anything with it, and seemed to lose his momentum in the second. Landing power punches counts for more in the eyes of the judges than jabs, its been that way since the beginning of boxing, and its one of the things that translated to MMA. Another thing is that for some reason the judges, as a general rule, will give more credit to the takedown attempt, than the sprawl.

I suppose that my definition of Fighter IQ is more than just the creation of a gameplan, it's the implementation as well. Andrei Arlovski, and Keith Jardine usually come up with great gameplans. Arlovski especially is notorious for sticking to a gameplan and usually winning the fight up until he throws it out the window. It happened against Fedor, Kharitonov, Rizzo, Rodriguez, Sylvia, and Bum Rogers (copyright, Roflcopter). Jardine does the same thing, especially in his fights against Jackson, Bader, and Hamill, fights he was winning on the scorecards until he tossed the gameplan out the window.

Kampmann came into the fight with a good gameplan, but couldn't stick with it. He got undisciplined, and let himself get drawn into a firefight with a berserker. To me, that's showing low fight IQ. coming up with gameplans is only part of it, sticking to them is the bigger part.

With the definition tacked down.

Yes, his fighter IQ is terrible.
Grappling with Shields, brawling with Sanchez. Both things that you SHOULDN'T do. And he lost both fights for that reason. If he'd have kept Shields standing he had a better shot at a TKO than anyone but Hendo has had. And with Sanchez, round 1 showed what technical boxing can do to him.

Okay, sorry if that wasn't exactly clear.
