Mark Kampann had suffered a knee injury not too long ago, which kept him out of the octagon since early March of this year. His last fight was against a very tough opponent, Andrew McFedries, at UFC 68-Uprising. McFedries completely out-boxed Kampann with several hard punches to the face, which covered his entire face with his own blood. That wasn’t enough to take out Kampmann as he acquired a win via an arm triangle choke submission, one of the best comebacks and submissions in his career.
After his last bout, he was training intensely for his next fight that was supposed to be against Rich Franklin at UFC 72-Victory in Ireland. Kampann suffered a knee injury during a training session prior to his UFC match, which has kept him out of MMA since then. His doctors took a second look at his knee not too long ago and there is finally some good news for him. Ken Pavia, his manager, says that he is expected to come back in March or April of 2008. He is 3-0 in the UFC and 15-2 in his overall MMA career.
We wish Mark Kampmann the best of luck with his recovery and hope to see him in the octagon very soon.
