Martin Kampmann Talks McFedries Fight & a Possible Drop to 170bs

Martin Kampmann hasn't lost a fight since 2004 which includes two straight victories in the UFC.

Now Kampmann has his eyes set on Pat Miletich fighter Drew McFedries. At UFC 65: 'Bad Intentions', McFedries surprised many when he took a fight on short notice and earned a TKO victory over Alessio Sakara. Find out what Kampmann thinks of McFedries and how he feels Randy Couture will do against Tim Sylvia . Here is the ADCC News Q and A.
