Martin Kampmann out of UFC 111

Posted: February 11, 2010 by Xtreme Couture MMA in Martin Kampmann

Ben Saunders will face Jake Ellenberger instead of Martin Kampmann at the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s show next month in New Jersey.

Saunders had a March 27 fight scheduled with Kampmann at UFC 111 in Newark, N.J., but Kampmann incurred a training injury here at Xtreme Couture MMA and Ellenberger agreed to step in, MMA Weekly and report.

Kampmann suffered a deep cut over his eye that required several stitches.

  1. Matt says:

    it’s just a cut, doesn’t completely stop him from competing…

  2. Doug says:

    yes it does. its called an athletic commission. they won’t let him compete/ train for a certain amount of days. So obviously Matt, you know nothing.

  3. jeff says:

    I know the athletic commission can set limits for injuries sustained in a sanctioned event. But, when did they gain the authority to do such for (effectively “regulating”} practices and training camps?

    I would think that it was more of a dr/fighter call as to not get into a situation that could be detrimental to the outcome of the fight.

  4. Yes but this is the same athletic commission that’s swears the 12 to 6 elbow is the most dangerous weapon, at the end of the day its up to NSAC doctor or no doctor
