The first time Carlos Condit met Martin Kampmann inside the Octagon, he was fresh off a killer run in WEC and looking to make a name for himself on a much bigger stage. He lost a close fight, and never forgot about it. Now, over three years later, he got the chance to avenge that defeat in a rematch at tonight's (Wed., Aug. 28, 2013) UFC Fight Night 27 event in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Right away, Kampmann pressed the action and tripped Condit while looking for a takedown. He also landed a hard right hand on the way back up.
Then it got crazy.
Condit started unloading, and while Kampmann can absorb a ton of punishment and still continue on, the referee decided a knee that put him down was enough to call the fight.
