A welterweight matchup between Martin Kampmann and Paulo Thiago is currently in the works for UFC 115.

The potential bout was first reported by The Las Vegas Sun, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed that both fighters have verbally agreed to the fight, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

While not yet officially announced, UFC 115 is expected to take place June 12 at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. The night's main card airs on pay-per-view.

Someone called this fight in a thread awhile ago. I thought it would be a good fight with Paulo getting the win.

seems like Paulo should get a better opponent, Kampmann has lost to Daley, Marquardt and close decision to Condit, while Paulo only lost to Fitch via lay n pray.

Kampmann does not seem like a one off two off fight to the title shot

he should get Daley or Alves or Hughes or something like that

if Kampmann is a big enough underdog i'll be picking him. He is way more technical on his feet. If he fights smart he could out point Thiago for 3 rounds.

It's hard to pick against Paulo for me because I have been a doubter and it has only bitten me in the buttocks.....I can't let that happen again.
However I would much prefer to see Paulo vs Alves and Fitch vs Daley!
Kampmann should be fighting Swick!

Kampmann has small arms, and folds when he gets hit hard.

Paulo has very long arms, and has the knack for landing his most powerful shots, normally while recieving damage simultaneously.

Fitch got caught up in a Paulo submission for basically an entire round, and hes one of the hardest people to submit in the sport. Recollecting on the Kampmann/Condit fight, Condits sub game had kampmann on the defensive for most of the ground war. Paulo has a similar, although quite more refined sub game in my opinion.


Kampmann will never be able to compete at the top levels of the division, and this fight will showcase why.

I'll take an avatar bet for this fight when it happens.
