Martin Kampmann spent his childhood in his hometown. When he was only eight years old, he began training for wrestling, after which he moved his focus to karate, and later to boxing and Muay Thai. Before he turned to mixed martial arts, he also trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and submission wrestling. In 2000, he started training in mixed martial fighting, and decided to pursue his career further as a mixed martial artist.

Thus, Martin’s professional career in the sports industry began in February of 2003, when he debuted in the match against Gert Mannaerts, defeating him, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. Over the next several months, he defeated such fighters as Dave Jones, Toni Vivas and Xavier Foupa-Pokam, which led him to participate at M-1 MFC: Middleweight GP in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 2004, reaching the semi-final, but losing to Andrei Semenov.

However, Martin continued to line up success after success, as he signed a contract with the Cage Warriors Middleweight Championship, winning the title in the fight against Matt Ewin at CWFC: Strike Force 2 in 2005. In his next match, he defended it against Damien Riccio, defeating him via rear-naked choke, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

In the following year, Martin transferred to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), making his debut against Crafton Wallace at UFC Fight Night 6, defeating him. Afterwards, he took victory over Thales Leites and Drew McFedries, which earned him Submission of the Night, and so increasing his net worth. Martin then made his debut in the welterweight division, when he defeated Alexandre Barros at UFC 9, and he also Carlos Condit, Jacob Volkmann and Paulo Thiago by the end of the decade.

To speak further about his professional career, Martin also engaged two times in Fight of the Night, both of which he lost to Diego Sanchez at UFC Live: Sanchez vs. Kampmann and to Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2. Beside that, in the new millennium he increased his net worth defeating Thiago Alves by guillotine choke, earning Submission of the Night, and Jake Ellenberger via TKO, earning Knockout of the Night.

Apart from his career as a professional MMA, Martin also became known as a poker player. He started playing in 2014, participating at various online and live tournaments. His first major victory came when he won the Nevada Poker Challenge and earned more than $52,000, increasing further his wealth.
