kampmann has the much better standup offensively, but his striking defense constantly comes into question. i do think he can control the pace on the feet, and is more than capable on the ground. thiago has chances to win this fight, but i think kampmann will pull out the UD.
it's possible that this could even be for a title shot too. kampmann was on the verge of a shot, and lost to daley. normally, it would take 3 wins or so to get back to that spot, and his win over volkmann and a win over a very highly-touted thiago could bring him right back up. as for thiago, wins over kos, swick and kampmann outweighs anything hardy has done.
Survival is Triumph Enough
