The division is kinda weird atm. Condit should have fought someone, possibly one of those. Instead he sat out and these two are going at it, making one of them an unofficial contender. Meanwhile DW is talking about GSP-Anderson if he gets past Carlos..

I forgot about GSP/Anderson. Tbh that saves two divisions. To me, Weidman isn't good enough for the MW title and Hendricks isn't good enough for the WW title. That way we can have something like Belfort/Belcher Vs Weidman and Hendricks/Kampmann Vs BJ/Rory, whilst getting a superfight at the same time.

I love and hate this fight. I love it because these two are absolute studs and this could be a FOTY contender. I hate it because it is basically a title shot eliminator for one of these guys. A loss here means 2-3 more fights before getting a title shot, whereas the winner easily is the next #1 contender.

Rough fight to call for me really. Kampmans got more skill in more places and he could probably kickbox his way to a win. Thing is, he likes to get in striking battles sometimes and I can see Hendricks knocking him cold in a exchange if Kampman allows a lot of them.

I think Hendricks is capable of wrestling/grinding his way to a Stoppage er decision. Im not sure thats the gameplan he'll use. He likes to bang and has the power to stop kampman if he can get some shots on goal but I'm afraid he'll just chase Kampman around and get out pointed or stopped if he can't cut off the cage.

I'm going to take Kampman but he very well could get his head knocked off if he's not careful.

None, that's why they should just call it what it is the Bona fide title and tell the bastards they can't sit it out waiting for injured fighters.

Jens Pulver, greatest lightweight striker of all time, no seriously.

I would agree if the Koscheck win hadn't been a lackluster SD.

Isn't this fight on the Condit/GSP undercard? Condit maybe should have defended the interim belt on the undercard, but it would make no sense to see Hendricks/Condit on this one. Why would the interim champ be facing someone other than the full champ? Condit Vs GSP, although completley boring, is the match up that should have been made. 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.
The whole point was that Condit shouldn't have waited until December to fight. I realize it was unclear from my post that I wasn't talking about ufc 154 specifically. Obviously if you're waiting for that then GSP is the man the Interim champion should be fighting.

Anytime you beat two fighers in a row that are more or less undisputedly top five imo thats impressive enough, it doesn't happen that often when ya think about it.

That's a different issue, I agree about that part with the interim belt. But I don't blame Condit. Think about him fighting BJ, to it getting cancelled, all the GSP cancellations, GSP wanting to fight Diaz, etc. He had to go well over half a year without fighting due to other people being idiots. If he fought Kampmann for the interim title, it would do like 42 buys. He deserves to make up the money and way more and have the biggest fight of his career. What if he beat Kampmann or Hendricks and got hurt? Then there wouldn't be a GSP fight until 2013 which means he'd go almost two years without fighting. Who would want that?

And hasn't happened in his case either. Undisputedly top five? Both of them? Not really.

Well until recently at least, still solid top ten for sure. What I meant was you don't see fighters knock off two opponents of that caliber in a row often.
