Martin Kampmann vs. Carlos Condit: Let the Judges Take the Night Off

Originally posted on

When you have monikers like “Hitman” and “Natural Born Killer” meeting inside the octagon, it’s safe to assume the crowd won’t be booing.

Carlos “Natural Born Killer” Condit and Martin “Hitman” Kampmann have traveled down different roads in their respective MMA careers. On Apr. 1, those roads will converge, when Condit and Kampmann collide in the main event at Ultimate Fight Night 18, shown free on Spike TV...

Kampmann started his UFC career as a sinewy middleweight and in his sophomore performance out struck Thales Leites en route to a convincing decision victory. Martin went on to win his next two fights before running into a roadblock known as Nate “The Great” Marquardt.

Marquardt peppered Kampmann with punches for just over a minute before the Danish born fighter crumpled to the canvas floor. The loss prompted his move to welterweight, which he received encouragement for, from many of his teammates, including team leader Randy Couture.

Kampmann picked apart unknown Brazilian Alexandre Barros in his first fight at welterweight. Barros, who was making his UFC debut, was no match for Kampmann’s sophisticated striking assault, which facilitated a second round TKO victory.

With the win, Kampmann improved his overall record to 14-2, 6-1 with the UFC. Martin has been involved in one fight that went to the judges' scorecards, which was against Thales Leites.

It is safe to say that the fight on Apr. 1 is expected to be the biggest in both fighters’ careers.
