will rory get up after getting rocked and come back to win or will he stay down? this is the question i ask myself before every one of his fights, he is easily one of the most exciting fighters out there today IMO, great matchup.

It doesnt get easier for either guy here. Im thinking Kampmann might stand up too long and get tko'd, but maybe he learned from his last fight w/ daley. Idk

Both guys like to trade punches, but Kampman has a lot more skill and has a better chin......Kampman rd 1 KO.......

Markham is nowhere near the technical striker that Daley is. Kampmann KOs Markham with a beautifully placed counter punch, just like Hardy did.

I honestly think that Martin needs to remember how good his ground game is, I really believe that if he does that he will sub Rory with relative ease!

Kampmann is superior to Markham in all aspects of the game, Round 1 sub.

Should be a good comeback fight for Martin. Not the easiest fight, but he is better than Markham pretty much everywhere except for maybe the strength department.

I expect to see Kampmann take the fight to the ground and not risk getting KO'd again to secure a first round submission.
