Tim Ngo of 5thRound.com had the pleasure of speaking to Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann late last week prior to UFC 81: Breaking Point about his rehab on his injured knee. Kampmann was open and honest about a possible return sometime in the near future, “I’m still working on my knee, but I’m aiming at maybe April.” If you don’t know, Kampmann suffered a knee injury while training for a fight against Rich Franklin at UFC 72: Victory. He was ultimately replaced by Yushin Okami and he’s been working hard to get back ever since.
When Tim Ngo asked Kampmann if he thinks that he’ll come back without the fear of injuring his knee again his response was, “I certainly hope so, it’s hard to tell because I’m still having some complications with my knee. But hopefully it’ll be good for fighting, I’m hoping it’ll be as good as before. I just wish it’d be good enough for fighting you know? That’s my main thing.”
