If I told you that I wasn’t interested in Wallid Ismail’s translation of Paulo Thiago’s post-fight interview, I would be completely lying to you. You would literally have to slap me in the face for telling you a blatant lie. It’s cool, I’m used to it. Unfortunately, tonight we will not be blessed with that honor and instead, we were readily served a dominant victory by Martin Kampmann over Paulo Thiago. Now everyone set aside the time at UFC 103 when Paul Daley sent The Hitman astral traveling at the American Ariles Arena in Dallas, TX. Semtex is banned from every entering an octagon again so we can all chalk off that fight as a technical error in MMA. Last October, Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann were supposed to brawl for a title shot. that would have happened roughly around UFC 112. Swick pulled out, Hardy got the shot, Koscheck beat the guy who was about to get the shot, and we all remember what happened there.
We’re probably going to see a Jon Fitch vs. Martin Kampmann in the very near future to see who gets the next shot at disrupting GSP’s ‘rdiddum’. Of course, that is if Josh Koscheck doesn’t grab his belt in the meantime (or Jake Shields). Props to Kampmann on serving Paulo Thiago his second victory on his career (and the first one was against Jon Fitch).
