0

UFC welterweight contender Martin Kampmann returns to action this weeknd at UFC 115 following a stint on the disabled list and talks about his opponent, Paulo Thiago, with the Las Vegas Sun:

“I definitely think (Paulo) Thiago is higher ranked and more dangerous than Ben Saunders. The risk is up, but so is the reward. The guys you want to fight are the guys with all the hype behind them. I want to win fights and I want to come in and beat guys up. I want to keep getting tough guys, and I think Paulo Thiago is the first step. I want to beat him, of course, and I want to take that next step up. I don't like looking ahead, but guys like Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves are fighting. Dan Hardy is coming off a loss. There are a lot of different guys up there high in the welterweight division that could be good to fight, but first I have to focus on Thiago.”
