Martin Kampmann predicts he'll finish Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night 27

Martin Kampmann wants to be the first fighter in the UFC to finish Carlos Condit. He has five rounds to accomplish that goal at UFC Fight Night 27, which takes place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., on Aug. 28, 2013.

Martin Kampmann was Carlos Condit's welcoming party when the former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Welterweight champion made his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut. The bout, which headlined UFC Fight Night 18 back in April 2009, was hotly contested, but Kampmann walked away with the split decision victory.

It was so close that Fight Metric scored it a draw.

Later this month (Aug. 28, 2013) at UFC Fight Night 27, Kampmann and Condit will meet again in the main event. Since the first meeting, Condit has challenged for the 170-pound title, while Kampmann has struggled to find his footing in the division.

Kampmann recently spoke with's "Late Night Cage Side Radio" to discuss his upcoming fight with "Natural Born Killer."

And he didn't mince words regarding his intentions:

"Nah man, we got five rounds to finish that s*** and I'm going for the finish. I'll finish Carlos Condit... I see me getting the finish and getting the win. That's what I see, and it's going to be a hell of a fight. I'm coming in to finish him.... August 28 we're gonna come in there and scrap, but I'm going to walk away with the finish. I'm going to walk away as the winner."

In 35 professional fights, Condit has only been finished three times, none of which came via (technical) knockout. Indeed, he is among the most well-rounded fighters on the UFC's roster and has a chin to match his skill set.

Kampmann is clearly motivated to prove otherwise.
