UFC’s Martin Kampmann Not Retiring – But is Taking a Break From MMA
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.09.2014



- UFC's Martin Kampmann recently spoke about taking a break from the sport. Here are the highlights…

On Taking a Break From MMA: "I've had a lot of tough fights, and even the ones I win, I sometimes make them tough for myself. I'm just taking a long break. No rush to get back in the cage. Let my body recover and get good. I'm just going to kick back, and whenever I feel like coming back, I'll come back."

On Why He Is Taking a Break: "I enjoy fighting, but I've just had my 10-year anniversary as a professional fighter," Kampmann said. "I feel a little burned out right now. That's why I'm taking a break. I don't want to get in there unless I feel like it. I love training, I love fighting, but I want to have the fire again to go in. If I don't have the fire, then I think that means I need to take a break. I've had my share of concussions, and sometimes I didn't take the correct amount of time, and that catches up to you," Kampmann said. "I feel OK. I've been better, but I feel I want to take a break. That's why I'm taking a break."

On What He'll Do During His Break: "I'm not retiring yet," Kampmann said. "I'm trying to pursue other things right now too. I'm not training so much. I've been in the gym coaching some guys, probably going to corner some guys coming up, and also I'm starting an affiliation program to certify trainers and gyms under me, so I'm helping the MMA program."

On The Welterweight Division: "There's a big shakeup [in the welterweight division], and that also gives the desire to come in and fight again," Kampmann said. "I've been close to the top several times, but I've been able to maintain a top ranking for a lot of years. I've fought a lot of tough guys."
