Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann official for UFC 154 in Montreal

Quote:


As expected, top welterweight contenders Johny Hendricks (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) and Martin Kampmann (20-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC) will meet in the co-main event of November's UFC 154 event.

UFC officials confirmed the long-rumored matchup on Tuesday's new edition of FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight."

UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Bell Centre in Montreal, and a Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit title unification is expected to serve as the main event.

The Hendricks vs. Kampmann fight is expected to serve a No. 1 contender contest, though things could certainly be shuffled if a rumored St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva superfight comes to fruition following UFC 154.

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 June.

Both had reasonable claim to meet the winner of the title-unification bout planned for November. Now a clear contender should emerge from the crowd.

I'm so pissed off at Condit right now. These guys should be fighting him, not each other.

Actually, I'm more pissed off at the UFC for allowing it.

Why? What if Condit fought one of them and then there was another injury, further delaying a GSP fight. Give the guy a break. He went from fighting Penn, to fighting GSP, to fighting GSP again, to getting removed from the fight, to fighting and beating Diaz, to fighting Diaz again, and now this. He has handled it all like a pro and deserves to fight GSP. This Kampmann fight feels like an FX main event for some reason.

I'm assuming this is a contender fight. 50/50 on this really.

What's the point in an interim champ if he then sits out 8 month waiting to fight the champ.

Can't say I disagree! Yes Condit got messed around a lot with who he was fighting when and where. But that somehow means that once he wins the interim belt he can healthily sit out for months on end waiting for the real champ? Just proves interim belts are absolutely pointless.

Injuries may happen? So? Same goes for ANY fight. More injuries seem to happen training these days anyways. Using that excuse is just weird, by that logic, GSP/Condit shouldn't fight at all because the winner might of gotten injured and not be able to face Hendricks/Kampmann. Yes it sucks for Condit and he does 'deserve' GSP, but the circumstances were out of his control. He should of defended the 'belt' at least once since the time between the Diaz fight and the GSP fight.,

I have absolutely no idea who takes this fight. Love both guys. One has a beard. Hendricks by Soojoo prediction.

The whole point of an interim title is so the champ being out doesn't put the whole division on hold. It is literally pointless to have an interim champ that is just going to sit out until the actual champ comes back.

the UFC should make Condit fight the winner of this fight.
