Report: UFC’s Martin Kampmann Strong Candidate to Coach Team Alpha Male
By FCF Staff
Sacramento’s renowned Team Alpha Male has yet to find a replacement for departing head coach Duane Ludwig, and according to a new report, one of the leading candidates is UFC welterweight Martin Kampmann.
Although Kampmann has not officially hung up the gloves, the veteran has yet to commit to another fight, since he was stopped by Carlos Condit last August. In addition, the Danish fighter has expressed an interest in coaching in recent months.
In the latest edition of “UFC Tonight”, correspondent Ariel Helwani reported that Kampmann has met with Team Alpha Male, after relaying his interest in the coaching position to Urijah Faber. The 32 year-old has apparently impressed the team considerably, however, a couple of other candidates are scheduled to be interviewed.
Prior to his loss to Condit, Kampmann (20-7) was knocked out by reigning champ Johny Hendricks, which ended the Las Vegas based fighter’s three fight win streak.
