Will Campuzano def. *Josh Sampo by KO (Knee to Head) 1:18 R3
Play by play by: www.ultmma.com

Top Missouri promotion Rumble Time returned to the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles for the first time in 2012 with a five fight pro card. In the main event Show Me State flyweight Josh Sampo (6-2) looked for the biggest win of his career versus five time UFC/WEC fighter Will Campuzano (10-4). The fight for Campuzano was his first in over a year while Sampo was in search of second win in the span of 40 days.
 
Round one began with Campuzano and Sampo trading heavy leather on the feet. Sampo mixed in two takedowns in the opening five minutes that wore down Campuzano. In the second frame Sampo again racked up points with takedowns but Campuzano would make him pay later in the fight.
 
One minute into the third round Sampo again searched to bring Campuzano back to the ground. Campuzanocountered Sampo’s next takedown attempt with a well timed knee to the head. The impact from the knee strike flattened out Sampo and earned Campuzano the knockout win.   Now competing at 125 pounds Campuzano has won two fights in a row since being released by the UFC in January 2011. The 25 year old Texan could add depth to the UFC’s new flyweight division and Campuzano may be resigned to the Zuffa owned promo before the end of the year.
