Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann updated fans on the cut over his right eye via his Twitter account late last night. The Xtreme Couture-trained fighter wanted people to understand why he was forced to pull out of his UFC 111 fight against Ben Saunders (I must warn you, it’s pretty bad).
All you have to do is take a look at the evidence below:
For those of you who didn’t know the story, MMAJunkie first reported that Kampmann was going to pull out of the March 27th card because of an undisclosed injury.
Coincidentally, 5thRound.com, happened to bump into the welterweight at “UFC 109: Relentless” this past weekend and noticed some fresh stitches over his right eye (see story picture above).
Kampmann appears hopeful that he could return in May for possibly UFC 114, which is expected to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the same city he trains.
