At UFC on Fox Sports 1, "The Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit will step into the Octagon with a different Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann than the man who beat him in 2009. On the heels of two straight losses inside the Octagon, Condit looks to even the score against Kampmann, who recently saw a three-fight winning streak snapped by current title contender Johny Hendricks
On paper, the rematch promises to deliver as much excitement as the first encounter between Condit and Kampmann, if not more. Given what both fighters bring to the dance, fans can expect one of three things.
Either Kampmann will take Condit to the ground again and get himself engaged in another intense ground battle, Kampmann will try to spend the majority of the bout standing with Condit or we'll see a total repeat of the first fight for the first three rounds out of five.
Either way, expect the rematch to provide a similar result to the first fight. Condit and Kampmann brought out the best in each other, to the point where the action-packed affair left people debating the split decision. When matchmakers can line up fighters who match up that well, fans can expect them to deliver an exciting tilt every time they face each other.
Last time, Kampmann's wrestling proved the difference. This time, he faces a much difference Condit, and as stated, Condit will face a much difference Kampmann. However, the result will still prove a close one, and regardless of who wins the bout, it will leave fans talking about one of the most exciting non-title fights in recent memory.
