I like this one, and I'm assuming that if Hendricks wins he will become the number 1 contender. If Kampmann wins, it leaves the division in a bit of a wierd place. No one would really deserve a title shot. With the exception of a potential rematch for GSP if he loses (which surprisingly would actually clean up the divison), no one really deserves a title shot. I think the best bet would to give Rory MacDonald the title shot if he beats Penn (although I'm not sure how him and GSP would be in fighting each other). If Penn wins, then give Kampmann the shot.
It will not be a boring fight, the only people who think Condit is boring are butthurt Nick Diaz fans, and people who have only seen him fight once. It's also going to end with Condit taking GSP's life so how is that gonna be boring?
Second, Kampmann absolutely deserves a shot at the title if he wins, four fight winning streak over Story, Alves, Ellenberger, and Hendricks is absolutely worthy of a title shot, and a lot of people thought he got robbed against Shields and Diego, I however think he lost both of those. The division wouldn't be in limbo at all, everyone becomes relevant again if Condit wins, which he will.
And Condit slaughters Rory again, so if Rory wants another ass whippin' he's more than welcome to come get one.
