I don't see Kampmann losing this at all. The only way Alves wins is via TKO, and Kampmann's got a solid chin. I think he's prone to starting late, like Condit in my opinion ( who he beat of course along with Paulo Thiago, Volkmann and Story...and arguably Shields and Sanchez in his last 6 fights minus the Daley beat down), but he's great everywhere, and super fuckin tough.

This should be one hell of a gr8 technical stand up war when these two meet.

He didn't get kicked out of the UFC for losing. He got kicked out for disciplinary issues. In fact, he beat Kampmann. He's lost twice since being outside the UFC, once to Diaz and once to lay and pray (although it was close and some felt he won). Daley is definitely worthy of being in the UFC, skillwise.

Kampmann should try and wrestlefuck him. His wrestling is real good. But Kampmann's a warrior and will stand with him.

 Alves by TKO 2nd round. He has been looking very sharp and I would say he has a bit more power than Kampmann.

this is a very hard fight to call.. both technical strikers ... martin probably has the better hands, alves has the better kicks, alves has more power, both have good footwork, both have pretty good takedowns, alves has better takedown defence, martin has the better subs though.. all i know is this fight is gonna be amazing
