St-Pierre vs. Condit, Hendricks vs. Kampmann targeted for UFC 154 in Montreal

Quote:
SUNRISE, Fla. Two welterweights to recently emerge as the No. 3 and No. 4 competitors in the division who sits where is one for debate have a final hurdle to clear before getting a title shot.

UFC president Dana White announced Friday that the promotion is targeting a fight between Johny Hendricks (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) and Martin Kampmann (20-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC) for UFC 154, possibly as the co-main event to an expected headliner between undisputed champ Georges St-Pierre and interim champ Carlos Condit.

UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Bell Centre in Montreal.

White made the announcement following "UFC on FX 3: Johnson vs. McCall," which took place Friday at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.

A source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the welterweight fight represents a contingency plan of sorts in case St-Pierre, who's still recovering from a torn ACL, is unable to fight at the November event.

In any event, the matchup settles a question left in the air by a logjam currently holding up the 170-pound division. Hendricks claimed his top spot by besting Josh Koscheck at "UFC on FOX 3: Diaz vs. Miller," which brought his current win streak to four. Kampmann, meanwhile, continued a stunning career resurgence with a TKO of Jake Ellenberger at The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale this past week.

Both had reasonable claim to meet the winner of the title-unification bout planned for November. Hendricks had recently seized upon Condit's recent comment that a fight with Kampmann would be fine if St-Pierre's injury kept him out longer than expected.

But now, the two will fight to determine the No. 1 contender.

That's a joke. Why are they planning fights so far away? Why the hell is Carlos Condit not getting a fight in between now and then? This is absurd.

Because its really hard to get 2 fights in between now and mid November, maybe if it was December then I can see making a case. You also never know with injuries and all that, you really want to risk Condit getting injured when he would wait 1-2 months more for GSP?

Get this whole interim title out of the way, no risk in prolonging this fake belt for any longer. I hate interim titles.

The UFC has always announced main event fights well in advance, so I see no point in crying about this. That said, given all of the injuries right now, I can't bring myself to jump for joy. It's more than possible that within the coming 5 months, one of these men won't be fit to fight.

Sounds about right, I knew the fight would be announced soon, now hopefully people will quit whining about Condit not defending, like he said last night when they asked him, if the UFC wanted him to fight, he'd fight.

Kampmann/Hendricks also was the right fight to make, now the winner of GSP/Condit will have the rightful number one contender to fight.

Hopefully my dude Condit comes through, would love to see the Natural Born Killer take the belt!

I thought Condit wanted Kampmann if GSP wasn't ready to fight for a while?

People bitching about Condit waiting to fight GSP is just absurd. GSP is the pinnacle of 170lbs... everyone wants to be the man to defeat him. Fighting GSP is really a win/win situation for anyone at this point... if you lose, no big deal, you were expected to lose anyway... if you win, you're the man that defeated the best in the world at your weight class.

The only downside of this for Condit is that when and if he wins, GSP fans will instantly jump on the ring rust/injury excuse... but that's inevitable, so why not go for broke!

Condit got his wish. He sat out to wait for GSP coming off a big hiatus due to injury, in a friggin stacked division with little between the three guys behind him.

Rooting for GSP big time here.
