Condit vs. Kampmann Wiki Update Wiki

While both Martin Kampmann and Carlos Condit prefer to keep their fights standing, they are also two of the most skilled submission artists in the welterweight division. They represent model fighters in terms of their aggression, adaptability, and well roundedness, so the buzz was strong for their main event tilt at UFN 18 in April of 2009. While some would dispute the razor-thin decision, which went to Kampmann, the fight was undoubtedly one of the best in the history of the sport.

Over three grueling rounds, Kampmann and Condit exchanged punishing combinations on the feet, with neither fighter truly finding his range. But the majority of the contest took place on the ground, with both fighters trading takedowns, sweeps, submission attempts and escapes en route to a close Split Decision verdict for Kampmann.

At several points during the fight, Kampmann appeared close to finishing Condit with a series of tight Guillotine Chokes, but “The Natural Born Killer” simply gritted his teeth and pulled through. Both men were battered, cut, and bloody by fight’s end. The fight would go down as one of the best displays of technical grappling to take place in the Octagon, and retained a thrilling, unpredictable quality throughout.
