Alves won that fight by locking in a rear naked choke in the first round and submitting his opponent. This victory was a good way to bounce back after Thiago’s previous fight which he lost to Rick Story at UFC 130. A win over Kampmann would be big for Thiago Alves and would prove to the fans and the UFC that he is truly back on form.

    Martin Kampmann has an MMA record of 18-5 and is currently coming off a huge victory over Rick Story. The fight took place at UFC 139 which was held in November of this year, Kampmann won the bout via decision ending a two fight losing streak. The two losses were against Jake Sheilds and Diego Sanchez giving Kampmann his first set of back to back losses in his MMA career. If Martin can follow up the victory against Rick Story with a win against Thiago Alves then it really will give him some serious weight in the welterweight division going forward.
