UFC Fight Night: Condit Vs. Kampmann 2 Predictions From FightLine

Carlos Condit has experienced the thrill of wearing UFC gold.

Now, he gets his chance at avenging one of his more bitter losses when he faces Martin Kampmann Wednesday night in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2.

FightLine main writer Dana Becker and staff writer Joseph Lisnow offer up their thoughts

Dana: This is an interesting bout, as both fighters are in need of a victory. Not like some, who might be cut, but for the sake of their chances at competing for the UFC welterweight title. The first meeting was a close one, but I’ve watched it a few times again and still give it to Martin Kampmann. However, since that time, I believe Carlos Condit has progressed further in terms of overall MMA skills. Can “The Natural Born Killer” show that inside the Octagon? I believe he can.

Joseph: Every fight is important, but Carlos Condit needs a win more than ever. The pressure is on as he looks at a possible 0-3 outing. Yes, the defeats were in high profile fights, but he still failed to leave the victor. Martin Kampmann wants more than another close win against Condit. Some sort of stoppage would push Kampmann??s name towards the belt. Condit is well-rounded in all areas and showed strong wrestling against Georges St-Pierre, so Kampmann should stand and trade punches. Knocking Condit out is another issue Kampmann needs to work on.
