Martin Kampmann Confident Heading Into Welterweight Debut

Originally posted on FightLine.com

Martin Kampmann (17-3) has long been considered one of the top middleweight fighters in the world. Going into his fight with Nate Marquardt at UFC, Kampmann had not lost in over 4-years; reeling off nine straight victories over the likes of Thales Leites, Andrew McFedries and Jorge Rivera. But after being overwhelmed by the clearly bigger Marquardt, Kampmann, at the urging of his camp has decided to try his hand at the welterweight division.

“Losing [really] sucks,” Kampmann told UFC.com. “I hate losing. But there’s not much I can do about it now. I have always been walking around pretty light compared to some of the guys at middleweight Even with the guys I train with [at Xtreme Couture]. I’d be walking around on weight at 185 . . . some of the 55ers who are out of shape are walking around at 185, so I thought I’d give 170 a shot.”
