Former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit knows exactly what to expect from Martin Kampmann.
Back in 2009, Kampmann edged out a split-decision victory vs. Condit. “The Natural Born Killer” will get his chance at redemption later this month in the main event of UFC Fight Night 27.
“Kampmann is very well-rounded,” said Condit, during a recent appearance on Inside MMA. “He has a lot of ways to win. I just have to be better in each aspect of the game.”
Condit (28-7) won his next five straight after the Kampmann loss, but has since lost two in a row – to Georges St-Pierre in a title unification match and Johny Hendricks this past March.
Both of those losses by Condit have come via decision, leaving him to question what is being done outside the Octagon right now by officials.
“There are a lot of problems with judging,” he said. “Judging is subjective and a lot of time it’s opinion and what angle are you seeing the fight from. I definitely think there’s something that has to be done to standardize the criteria.”
