Carlos Condit is looking for a repeat performance against Martin Kampmann and that includes going the full 25 minutes.
“Kampmann is very well-rounded,” said Condit on Inside MMA. “He has a lot of ways to win. I just have to be better in each aspect of the game. I feel like my movement and my striking are better. He’s very good with straight lines, not so much on angles and I feel I have the endurance to really push the five, five minutes rounds.”
The first fight in 2009 saw Condit drop a split-decision to Kampmann.
Condit would eventually become the interim welterweight champ, but couldn’t win the title unification bout with Georges St-Pierre. He then dropped a decision to No. 1 contender Johny Hendricks.
Kampmann had three straight wins, which included two stoppages, before Hendricks knocked him out in 46 seconds.
The top ranked welterweights headline UFC Fight Night 27 on August 28. It comes from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.
