Martin Kampmann will be resuming his UFC career September 6th at UFC 88 against his toughest opponent to date in Nate Marquardt. Kampmann will be back in action just three months removed from his impressive win at UFC 85 over Jorge Rivera, after having to sit out 15 months due to injury prior to that fight.
Kampmann will not only look to test himself, but also his surgically repaired left knee against Marquardt. After posting wins in his first three UFC fights, Kampmann found himself on the sidelines, riding the rehab trail for over a year in 2007.
β€œIt was a bad injury,” Kampmann told β€œI was very worried about it. I had it reconstructed and replaced and it was some serious [expletive]. There was so much doubt in my mind. I had plenty of bad days and days where I felt like [expletive], but I just had to hang in there.”
The knee is never going to be 100%, but Kampmann has accepted that and forged ahead regardless. He has made up for the explosiveness that he lost from the knee injury by becoming a more well-rounded fighter.
