FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that the UFC has signed Martin Kampmann to a new four-fight contract.

The news was confirmed with Kampmannā€™s agent, Ken Pavia.

Kampmann is 13-2 in his professional mixed martial arts career and is 4-1 lifetime inside of the Octagon. His most recent fight was a first round TKO loss to Nathan Marquardt at UFC 88 in September but prior to that he was 4-0 with victories over Crafton Wallace, Thales Leites, Drew McFedries, and Jorge Rivera.

A standout kickboxer prior to crossing over into MMA, Kampmann has become a respected grappler and had won nine consecutive fights prior to the loss to Marquardt.

According to Pavia, Kampmann is planning to drop to welterweight for his next bout and has also signed a sponsorship agreement with Hitman Fight Gear.

Nice, glad to hear this. After Martin's last fight which was a destruction, I think he will be looking to make a big splash at WW, i can't wait to see who they match him up with first.

He should fight Mike Swick. That would be an awesome fight if you ask me.

I'd love to see him and swick go at it, but I seriously doubt that will be his first fight.

Since he's both going down a class AND coming off a loss, I expect the UFC to feed him a can for his next fight. After that, the possibilities are endless
