“If I win this fight, I am the No. 1 contender No doubt. Nobody’s got the same resume I do in the UFC in the welterweight division. I’ve beaten the best guys. There’s no other welterweight that’s coming on the same streak that I have. There’s other guys coming up with a bunch of hype behind them, but really who have they fought? They haven’t fought anybody tough. They haven’t fought anybody good, but they’re getting the hype train behind them. Look at the guys I’ve fought and compare that to anybody in the welterweight division. I’ve fought some of the best guys in the division.”
“He used to help me out with my wrestling, so I know him pretty well. I was helping him out with his standup. We trained together, and I feel I’m the better striker. I’m definitely much slicker than he is, but he’s improved a lot, just like my wrestling has improved a lot. I’ve been taking guys down that have better wrestling credentials than me. I feel definitely I would have the advantage in the standup, but he’s still got heavy hands that I’ve got to respect and watch out for. I’m going to stay out of danger. I usually do, but I usually do get punched a little bit. It’s a fight — I’m going to get punched, but I can eat a shot and I can dish it back out.”
“I want to put it in my own hands and the way I’m going to put it in my own hands is by knocking out Johny Hendricks.”
Top UFC welterweight fighter, Martin Kampmann, recently discussed his UFC 144 bout against Johny Hendricks with the good folks over at Sherdog.com.
Having notched wins over the likes of current interim champion Carlos Condit and most recently Jake Ellenberger, Kampmann, in all reality should be next in line for the title with a win in his next outing.
