Kampmann Says Shields Did Nothing But Hug Him

After a close split decision loss to Jake Shields at UFC 121, Martin Kampmann talks about how he felt about the loss and who could be in his future via

“… I really gave the victory away by trying to finish him with submissions and losing position because of it. It was a stupid mistake on my part and I am very disappointed in myself for such a poor performance. … There are definitely flaws in the judging criteria but I'm not sure how to fix it. Best way is to not leave it to the judges. … I don't know yet. Maybe [Dan] Hardy or [Matt] Serra. They are both coming out of losses as well, but really it could be anybody. I don't want to wait too long. I had no injuries after the fight, because [Jake Shields] didn't really do much but hug me. My only sore spot is my knee from hitting him in the head.”
