This is too close to call for me. I will have to see how they prepare for one another. I think Kampmann has taken the cut better than Swick but it is safe to say that they are both comfortable at 170. I am leaning toward Kampmann but who knows. I would pick Swick at 185 though. I like this match up a lot.

This will be a good fight but i really don't wanna see it or i should say i do but whats in the title picture after that. Kampmann and swick are both off fresh wins and looking good in the new weight class. I would like to see both of them get built up a little more rather then fight each other. I would like to see one of them take on hughes and one take on serra or kampmann take on kos or fitch or something in that area. The title picture is kinda iffy after this fight possibly fitch another title shot after 1 or 2 more wins but i dont want to see gsp fight twice a year while they try to find a good opponent for the title. Never the less im going with swick via 2nd round tko.

I think this is a bad matchup for Kampmann, swick can keep distance and strike. Then also work in the clinch.

I see this fight going somewhat like the Swick/Saunders fight. Swick R2 tko.

I love this fight and think it makes a hell of alot more sense then the hughes/swick fight I read a rumor about...although I think that would be a pretty intriguing fight...swick would cement himself as a contender with a win while Hughes could prove himself still relevant to the division

Call me paranoid/hopefull...but maybe the UFC is keeping the title picture hazy to make a GSP/Silva Superfight more of a reasonable possibility

A lot of us called this one in the Swick is a top 4 thread. Maybe the UFC was watching what we all posted and they decided to make the match happen!

Congrats playground, you guys rock!

two things

one i like this matchup they are two worthy opponents for next title shot
this is for next title shot for sure

two this will more than likely set up a dec year end title then against pierre/alves winner

look for swick to ko kammpman while martin tries to take fight to ground and sub swick

swick is tough, more hungry than martin

great fight might be hot bout

this fight scares the hell out of me i'm a fan of both of them and i see either swick ending in a quick flurry ala nate the great or a long marcus davis type match where martin could get solid ground advantage i dunno though its rough and it is fight of the year cand.

I think Kampmann takes this fight, Martin looks better at 170, Swick looks gaunt and emaciated, I think Martin takes this fight by being superior everywhere except wrestling. Martin TKO Round 2, though Swick is game and could force the UD.

You know, I'm not totally sure that Swick can win this fight. It's going to be a war! Kampmann is a really good striker but Swick is better in my opinion. I think Kampmann will look to take Swick down and beat him. And none of us have seen how good Swick is off his back. This is a very intresting fight.
