UFC welterweight Martin Kampmann was on the brink of defeated when he notched an improbable victory by submitting former top contender Thiago Alves.
UFC president Dana White & Co. returned to Sydney, Australia on Saturday with an action packed card highlighted by an amazing comeback in the night’s featured attraction.
With the exception of a jaw-rocking Kampmann front kick, Alves dominated the first two rounds and was primed for a unanimous decision victory.
As the final round was coming to a close, “The Pitbull” went in for a takedown, but when the fighters hit the mat Kampmann was able to transition into a full mount and catch Alves in a guillotine choke with only 48 ticks left on the clock.
