Alves vs. Kampmann Wiki Update Wiki

The main event of UFC on FX 2 featured Martin Kampmann taking on Thiago Alves in the welterweight division.


Alves connected first with a low kick and a right, followed up by another low kick. Kampmann pressed forward and grabbed a single leg working for a takedown, briefly pulling Alves down but losing control. Kampmann landed a brutal front kick to the jaw and sent Alves stumbling back. Kampmann came forward with a flurry but Alves remained composed and got back to his feet. Alves had a cut opened over his eye and went to his takedown game, bringing Kampmann down and passing to side control. Alves passed to full mount but initially was more focused on maintaining position than opening up with strikes. Kampmann escaped to his feet just before the round came to a close.


Kampmann pressed the action to begin the second round but Alves countered with some nice strikes including a big left hook. Alves connected on another left and then a good combination, prompting Kampmann to move in looking for a takedown. Alves defended the takedown and retook the center of the cage. Blood trickled from Kampmann's face as he ate a big right hand. Kampmann landed a nice combination capped off with a glancing knee to the head, but overall the second round appeared to favor Alves.


Alves clinched up early in the third but neither fighter could gain an advantage in the clinch. Alves threw shots at sometimes awkward angles but made up for it with his enormous power. Kampmann came forward with a nice knee midway through the round. Kampmann attempted another front kick to the head but missed and Alves landed a nice combination that stunned Kampmann. In a remarkable reversal, Alves dove in for a takedown and Kampmann tied on a guillotine choke. Kampmann moved to mount with the choke and forced the submission from Alves in a dramatic comeback.


The official end came at 4:12 of the third round for the winner, Martin Kampmann. Speaking with Jon Anik in the post-fight inteview, Kampman commented, "I was eating too many punches going into the clinch... I wasn't getting flowing as much as I wanted... I've got all the respect for Thiago, he's a beast... I felt I really had to finish the fight, so I thought I had a chance to go for a submission and I squeezed it... I'll fight anyone but Carlos Condit has got a target on his back... I'd love to get a chance to fight him."
