Martin ‘The Hitman’ Kampmann (18-5) will look to back-up his unanimous decision win at UFC 139 over up-and-coming welterweight Rick ‘The Horror’ Story when he meets Alves in the Octagon on March 3. The Dane has incredible knock-out power and an underrated ground game that has seen him win nine of his 12 fights in the Octagon, including victories over Carlos Condit, Jorge Rivera and Paulo Thiago.
