By Tom Ngo

Martin Kampmann was one judge away from achieving his dream of challenging welterweight king Georges St-Pierre for his crown at UFC 129. Instead, his controversial split decision loss to Jake Shields last October leads him into a different kind of “Dream” matchup tonight against Diego “Don’t Call Me Nightmare” Sanchez.

While his opponent has opted to swap out his nickname mid-career, Kampmann believes he’ll be facing the same ‘ol relentless Diego when the cage door slams shut this evening inside the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

“I think he’s back to his old self [now]. He’s rediscovered himself and is back at [Greg Jackson’s camp], so I think he’s going to be a very game and dangerous opponent,” Kampmann told Sherdog.

“I think his biggest attribute is his pace, his stamina. “He keeps going and he keeps a high pace. Sometimes people get dragged into that.”
