Quoteworthy:

“The injury is getting better. But slowly and still a long way to go. I’ve started boxing again, but still no grappling or wrestling yet. Don’t have full range of motion in the knee and still lacking muscle, but working on it in rehab. I hope I can return to fighting in the beginning of the new year. I miss it a lot and can’t wait.”

Kampmann is rehabbing a knee injury that he sustained during training prior to his scheduled bout with former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin at UFC 72: “Victory” in June. He boasts a perfect record inside the Octagon with wins over Crafton Wallace, Thales Leites and Drew McFedries.

Kampmann is the one guy I really want to see, and was upset when he didn't get a shot at Rich Franklin. He's a small guy but he has some solid stand-up and decent ground-game for a kick-boxer. I hope that he will heal right

You said it, brother. I just posted the other day wondering how he's doing. The guy's tough as hell. He took some real mean shots from McFederies (who's no push-over) and was still able to take it down and finish him with that beautiful arm triangle. The guy has some sick leg work on his feet, too. I'm pretty sure Rich would bang him up but I'd still kill to see the fight

i cant wait to see Kampmann back in the octagon i believe it wouldve been a huge coming out for kampmann at 72 i really like this kids potential and i think he is a future champ at 170 and a serious title contender at 185

I think he would have been able to sub rich. I know, I know i'm going to get flamed, but he's got a very good chin and thales isn't a slouch.
