Martin Kampmann is no stranger to blood, sweat and tears in the Octagon. Since making his UFC debut in 2006, Kampmann has fought arguably some of the best the UFC has to offer.
After suffering back-to-back losses to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez, Kampmann’s title shot was slipping away fast. But after an impressive knockout of welterweight “Juggernaut” Jake Ellenberger, Kampmann finds his name back in the thick of conversation for title-shot contenders.
Before Kampmann gets to that level, he must first get past the heavy-handed Johny Hendricks. Hendricks is no slouch in the Octagon, coming off an impressive knockout of Jon Fitch and win over Josh Koscheck.
Bleacher Report got a chance to sit down with Kampmann to get his thoughts on everything from GSP to the Jon Jones/Anderson Silva superfight and his next opponent Johny Hendricks.
