Brandon Thatch still feels like he's in a dream after a first-round TKO of Justin Edwards on UFC Fight Night 27's preliminary card, and he's a little hesitant to commit to his next step.

Nice win but completely unrealistic.

Ya, Thatch is getting a little ahead of himself. I'm fan of his and I'd like to see the UFC build Brandon up properly. I hate when they toss an up an comer to wolves right away.

I dont think this is necessarily the worst matchup in the world. Thatch is 28 years old, older than prospects like McGregor, Gastelum, etc by a few yeras.

I almost like this matchup considering Kampmann is on a two fight losing skid, and his last actual wins usually come by him having to comeback from losing a round of two, rather than being able to win comfortably.

That being said, Thatch is a massive WW, and would like to see somebody test his cardio. Kampmann definitely could, but in terms of a name, Thatch isnt one right now. I think if Thatch dispatches someone like a Court McGee, I dont think a Kampmann fight is far out of his reach.

Hello Playground! First post. I was very impressed with Brandon Thatch. I think a fight with Cathal Pendred would be a perfect test. Pendred is a guy that will test his cardio without being a massive step up in competition.

Doubt this happens, Martin is too high up on the adder and is coming off a oss whie Thatch ust made his UFC debut. I don't thin the match maters woud ris a potentia oss from Martin to Thatch at east at this point in time.

Thatch would KO Kampmann in the first. Dude is a beast. Kampmann is chinny vs guys with Thatch's KO ability.
