Kampmann Expecting A Stand Up War Against Alves This Friday


“I think I can win the fight wherever it takes place, I’m prepared to fight Thiago wherever the fight goes. I think I probably have a better ground game, but the problem is, he’s really hard to take down. He’s got great takedown defense and he’s really good at getting back to his feet anyway. It might be a tough job taking him down, but I feel I can strike with him as well… I think the majority of this fight is going to take place standing up, but I’ve seen Thiago go for takedowns in some of his latest fights and I’m prepared for that,” Kampmann said. “I’m very confident in my takedown defense as well. If he gives me a takedown, I’ll take it and beat him up on the ground.”

In a recent appearance on Sherdog.com Radio, UFC welterweight fighter, Martin Kampmann stated that he expects a stand up war with Thiago Alves during this Friday’s UFC on FX 2 main event.

The two are known for their kickboxing style. You can probably give the edge in power to Alves and maybe the technical advantage to Kampmann, but whose style will prevail?

Will Kampmann be able to get past the former title challenger or will Thiago’s strength shine through?
