UFC Fight Night - James Krause VS Shane Campbell - Lightweight Bout

PITTSBURGH – James Krause tried everything he could think of to submit Shane Campbell.

But after three closely contested rounds, Krause (23-7 MMA, 4-3 UFC) instead had to settle for a decision, as he edged out Campbell (12-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) on the scorecards for the unanimous nod by scores of 29-28 across the board.

The lightweight bout opened up the main card of today’s UFC Fight Night 83 event at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. It aired on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Campbell had some surprises in store for Krause on the feet in round one, using a mix of kicks and some sharp, straight punches to back Krause up in the early going. Krause quickly decided that he was better off contesting the fight on the floor, which seemed to be a wise strategy as Krause took Campbell’s back and locked in the rear-naked choke, only to have the horn sound to end the round.

In the second, Krause again got the fight to the mat, and he once again seemed to be on the verge of finishing Campbell with a rear-naked choke. This time Campbell escaped on his own, then managed to roll into top position on Krause, who took a knee to the chest as he attempted to scramble to his feet.

Campbell finally managed to turn the tables in the final round, taking Krause’s back and beating him up with punches once the choke failed to materialize. Unfortunately for him, it proved to be too little, too late, as Krause lasted to the final horn and got the victory courtesy of the judges, all three of whom scored it for Krause.

With the win, Krause has now won two in a row in the UFC. Campbell has lost two of his last three.
