Martin Kampmann "Coming to Nashville"

Originally posted on

PunchDrunkGamer's Justin Bolduc sat down with UFC veteran Martin Kampmann to discuss his upcoming UFC Fight Night 18 bout with former WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit on April 1 in Nashville, TN.

PDG: You have a pretty big fight coming up with the WEC welterweight champion, and a lot of people consider him top ten in the division, Carlos Condit; what are your thoughts on him and what are you doing to prepare for him?

Martin: I'm working on my stand-up, wrestling, and ground like always – I'm working on everything. Of course there are some things [Carlos] is good at. He's long and he has dangerous knees. He throws a lot of kicks and he is dangerous off his back. We've been working on that, but I've been doing what I always do and working on everything.

PDG: How are you feeling now down at 170 pounds and is cutting the weight easy for you?

Martin: It is very easy for me now. When I did my first cut I dropped so much weight that I haven't really put it all back on now. I'm walking around really light right now, even for [welterweight]. I'm trying to put some more weight on.

PDG: What are you walking around at now?

Martin: Right now I'm at 182 [pounds].

PDG: Oh, wow.

Martin: Yeah, pretty light. So I'm trying to put some more weight on and not be so skinny!

PDG: You had the successful fight in Ireland against Alexandre Barros; what were you able to take away from that 170-pound fight?

Martin: I made a couple of mistakes in that fight. I tried to do a stupid takedown and ended up on the bottom. Just small things like that I did that I can come back to the gym and work on.
