UFC welterweight Martin Kampmann is all too familiar with the sting of scorecards. While “The Hitman” has won his fair share of decisions he’s also been on the losing end of some controversial judging as well.

As such, when he faces Thiago Alves tonight in the UFC on FX 2 headliner the 29-year old Dane will be looking to finish Alves from the opening bell rather than risk yet adding another disappointing result to his record.

“When I was fighting Jake Shields, I kept going for submissions, and I ended up losing the fight. If I had played that fight safe and just stayed on top like he was doing, I would have won the decision. I was trying too hard to finish and get a submission, which was a mistake on my part. I should have just stayed on top and pounded him out. I gave that fight away by fighting stupid,” said Kampmann in an interview with the UFC’s website before turning his attention to Diego Sanchez.

As many may remember, Kampmann and Sanchez slugged it out for three rounds with the bloody, beaten Sanchez somehow earning the nod.

“I definitely feel that I got screwed when I fought Diego. I should have won that, and everybody knew that I won that fight. He was hurt and beaten up after that fight, and I won it, but I got screwed by the judges,” explained Kampmann of the loss that still haunts him to this day.

“I’m tired of going to judges’ decision, especially because they don’t seem to see things my way at all,” he continued. “It doesn’t matter what I do; they have something against me, I guess. I’m going in there to finish Thiago Alves, and the judges won’t have a say.”

While the 18-5 Kampmann understands he may not be able to submit Alves or stop him with strikes he’ll still be pressing the pace, pursing a clear-cut outcome instead of leaving it in the hands of strangers.

“I used to always get finishes, but sometimes when you fight the best guys ”” when you’re fighting top guys ”” sometimes it can be hard to get the finish within those three rounds. When you’re fighting the best, it can be tough to finish, but I’m definitely going in for the kill. I used to have a bunch of first round finishes, and I used to get finishes all the time. I want to go back to that; I want to finish people.”

Alves-Kampmann Talk UFC on FX 2 Fight

Thirteen of his eighteen total wins have involved some form of stoppage including an even balance between TKOs/tap-outs.

Fans can see if Kampmann is able to fulfill his goal when the main broadcast for UFC on FX 2 starts at 9:00 PM EST. Prelims will air a few hours earlier on Facebook/FX.
