Kampmann: A five year old could tell I beat Sanchez

source: bloodyelbow.com
 

Several weeks have passed since Martin Kampmann lost a split-decision to Diego Sanchez at UFC Live on Versus 3.

"I still feel I won the fight," Kampmann stated. "I can maybe see the judges seeing his aggression as a factor. Sometimes people get a lot of credit for that and coming forward swinging wildly and even though they weren't landing, sometimes the judges score that."

"I think the judges gave him the nod for his aggression and moving forward and I don't disagree with the aggression part but it has to be effective aggression that is rewarded. Just running forward and throwing punches in the air is not going to hurt me. You can look at his face and then look at mine and any 5 year old down the street can tell you who got beat up in the fight."

"My style used to be all about going forward and getting into that brawl every single fight ... This bout I tried to keep my spacing and really pick him apart which I did a good job at doing ... Even with my back to the cage I was landing but he was throwing these wild punches that he eventually got rewarded for and I think was maybe just a little undeserved."

"It's up to the UFC and two losses don't look good but everybody who has seen my last two fights should know that I can compete with the best and I can put anybody in trouble."

"I would love to rematch Diego. I feel I won the first time but I would love to fight him again. If I was him I wouldn't want the rematch either because imagine how his face would look after the second fight. I would love to beat him up one more time and hopefully not leave it up to the judges this time.

All I can say about this fight is that Kampmann's next opponnent is gonna be in a world of hurt. After 2 losses you'd think he's gonna get a pretty steep drop in competition, but considering those 2 losses were to Jake Shields (a fight he could have won) and Diego Sanchez (a fight he won but got robbed) he's still a top10 WW so yeah...its gonna be nasty.

Diego in a post fight interview "I got the takedown" LOL. The judging is FUCKED right now in this sport. It's a big issue.

Kampmann's greatest mistake in that fight was allowing Diego to back him against the cage and swing like a drunken frat boy. I was screaming at the TV hoping he'd backpedal to the center of the ring. Other than that he looked amazing in this fight. His striking is as slick as can be and it would be a shame if he gets cut from the UFC any time soon. He had two very controversial losses but he clearly beat Diego in this fight.

 Not only did my 5 year old think Kampmann won, but my 3 year old said the guy with no boo boo's won too.

Diego once again showed he is game, but I feel that Kampman clearly fought a better fight and deserved the decision victory.

There are fighters out there that felt Diego won.  What makes your opinion more valid than theirs?  Because you watch fights from a couch?

Sanchez didn't win a single round in that fight.Shocking how many mma fans do not understand what they are watching.
