Martin Kampmann on Jake Shields: “His fights tend to be boring”

UFC welterweight contender, Martin Kampmann has decided to agree with critics and label former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Jake Shields as boring ahead of their co-main event showdown at UFC 121 this Saturday night.

Kampmann, speaking via CagePotato.com, said:

“He’s getting a lot of hype, and I feel sometimes people underestimate me. People underestimated me for my last fight too, they were counting me out then as well, but I proved everybody wrong, and I plan to prove everybody wrong in this fight as well…I’m in the UFC to achieve my goals, and Jake’s just another guy in the way.

“Yeah, I definitely think so. If he can earn a title shot coming in from Strikeforce with his first fight in the UFC…this is my 11th fight in the UFC, so I think I’ve paid my dues. Of course it’s up to the UFC who gets the title shot, but I definitely think that it’ll put me up in #1 contender status with a win.”

“Yeah I think sometimes his fights tend to be boring. There’s rarely much action in the striking department in his fights. He’s really good at what he does, he tries to get people to the ground and dominate them from on top. He’s got a really good grappling game, he’s one of the best grapplers in the welterweight division, but yeah, I think sometimes it tends to make a boring fight.”
