GSP vs. Condit, Kampmann vs. Hendricks In The Works For UFC 154 | UFC NEWS

UFC president Dana White announced Friday following UFC on FX 3 -Johnson vs. McCall an expected headliner between interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre and co-main event Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann in the works for UFC 154 on Nov. 17 at Bell Centre in Montreal.

The welterweight bout represents a contingency in the likelihood St-Pierre’s torn ACL injuries prevent him from fighting at the November event.   A number 1 welterweight contender will be determined in this brawl.  Just this past week Martin Kampmann TKO’d Jake Ellenberger during The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale.  While, Johny Hendricks earned a 4 streak win when he beat Josh Koscheck at UFC on FOX 3 – Diaz vs. Miller.  Both having plausible claim to meet the winner of the title-unification.

    I don’t know about you but GSP vs CONDIT doesn’t do anything for me… Weak storyline in my opinion. Just looking forward to GSP vs ‘No Show’ Diaz!

  2. Joe Rogan says:

    This will be the first time ever I’ll be rooting for GSP. I think Condit is fucking vagina. I can name at least 5 other guys in the division who would wreck his shit if he wasn’t squatting on the “title”.

  3. A.James says:

    I’m rooting for GSP since Condit really cheese dicked that last fight.

  4. Ryan nohokai kelly says:

    Id like to see a double ko on both these puds sick of both of these play it safe strategy fighters get in there and bang like true warriors already

      Good post kelly but you have to remember they are fighting under GREG BORING ” run away like a p’ussy today and steal a title away” Jackson. people calls his gameplanns smart I call them cheap ass SLEAZY and are ruining the sport. GSP will never fight Condit he willback out say he stubbed his toe on way to the arena. It will be Condit vs Hendricks or Kampmann and GSP will fight Diaz after 1st of the year. I’m surprised GSP has any fans left outside Canuck land

  5. Jigga says:

    Wtf people condit a pussy he has like 25 finishes and why the fuck is he going to get trapped in the corner and get caught like Diaz does to everybody u people drive me nuts fuck!!!!!

    • pole says:

      I call it butthurt. The worst kind of butthurt is rooting for a guy you hate to beat a guy that just beat one of your favorites. Condit should win this over a rusty and probably timid Georges.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Condit turned his back and ran at least 3 times in Diaz fight. i was a huge Condit fan before that fight and became a Diaz fan after he showed he clearly won and never took a step back. Diaz domainated and walked thru eevrything Condit had. Maybe its just because i can’t stand Greg jackson cause i see thru all his cheap ass stunts and sleazy way he has fighters like Guida and Condit eeeek out bulls’hit wins. Jackson is doing more harm for the sport of MMA than any one man. Mark my words Jackson will make sure Condit and GSP don’t fight which is Ok because then we get to see GSP/Diaz

    • Dan says:

      28 wins….26 of them he finished!! He fought tactically against Diaz….but he as good of a finisher as you will ever see in the UFC! You gotta respect other fighters styles if you wanna be the best….you gotta be able to win any way possible! War Condit!

  6. WrestlingRules says:

    Condit is good and comes to fight, except against Diaz.. He didn;t want to strike with Nick and played the point game. I don’t see where Condit’s strengths can get to GSP. I see GSP out wrestling him easily and beating him up on the ground. GSP wins UD r5. Only hope for Condit is to Serra him if he can tag him. GSP takes this with a 90% certainty.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Fair assessment except condit did turn his back a few times and ran away from Diaz which is a DQin boxing. Should be a DQin MMA to IMO. Condit has a big reach advantage on GSP and if he lands a punch half as hard as he hit hardy with GSP will be OUTCOLD

  7. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    I think if there was a way to measure chin strength other than speculation GSP chin wouldn’t be in top 10 or 15th in todays UFC WW divison and that is why he has to fight so safe IMO. call it smart, I call it boring and not worthy of being the champ when you don’t fight

  8. B-rad says:

    kampmann FTW and georges is gonna destroy condit

  9. maurice says:

    whoa, u guys hate for condit for the diaz fight is really making u guys not realize how fucking good condit is. he’s the former wec ww king. came to the ufc and was BULLSHITED his debut fight against kampmann, and hasnt lost since. he’s one of the greatest finishers in mma history, one of the most well rounded fighters of all times, solid chin, heart and cardio. condit is a complete mmartist, and thats is y a 1 demesional fighter like diaz will never beat condit. im sure daley, BRUDDAH BJ, cyborg, CONDIT, GSP, etc were all told to not back into the cage against diaz. circle back to the center then fight. condit did turn his back a few times on diaz, ran to the center of the cage, then proceeded to punch, elbow, kick and knee diaz in the face and body. i wouldnt like the “running” aspect of the fight if that were all he was doing, thats far what condit was doing. by the 3rd round it was painfully obvious that diaz had no answer, and condit was finding his range in a big way. also, even when diaz did cut condit off and land shots, not a damn thing happended cus lets see, CONDIT ate diaz punches like they were nothing. i give diaz the first 2 rounds. those rounds were close as hell, but diaz was connecting a bit more and condit was still finding his rhythym. condit put combinations together in that fight that u rarely see in mma, and that u rarely see from condit. when the match was first made i told all my friends condit MIGHT win. they all doubted me and what not, but i kept saying to them, “i just cant picture condit getting boxed up in a corner like the rest of diaz opponents.” u fags r basically saying, fuck condit for not standing with his back to the cage and trying to outbox diaz in a phonebooth. THE entire mma world knows diaz footwork sucks, and FINALLY some1 exploited that shit to the maximum. go watch rounds 3, 4 and 5 and tell me how the fuck did any man in there right mind give those rounds to a fucking zombie.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Here’s the thing. Condit can fight and has as you said. What most people don’t like about him is his character. The guy talked pre-fight like he was gonna stand in front of Diaz and fight and he did the opposite. As mentioned, he turned his back and ran to get away from him. Some may say that was smart and he won the mind game, but it really was a conniving weasally thing that he did. It’s a character issue. What Condit shoulda done pre-fight is told Nick,” FU, gonna fu-up and beat ur ass stoner” and Not say he was can stand and bang……he just looked like he pussed out, not that he didn;t beat him.

      • Noel says:

        Agree! Yeh to win sum fights you need a tactical approach but to say your gonna stand with a fighter n then point score is bollocks!
        Add to the fact he won’t defend an interim belt shows as a person he’s not all he seems! Good record but after the Diaz fight his fan base must be decreasing had respect b4 the hardy fight (am English and will back UK fighters no matter how shit!) n then followed Condit and watched sum previous fights but won’t anymore, not that a cud find the pussy hiding with a ‘Chael’ belt!

  10. maurice says:

    @WRESTLINGRULES i cant remember if it were the primetime or countdown show, but condit clearly states, “i will not outbrawl diaz, i will beat him with my technique.” i dont think he quoted it word for word like that, but he did state he would not try to outbrawl diaz. i think it might have been the countdown show. but i swear to god condit stated that he would beat him with technique. condit is not only one of the most deadly fighters of all times, but his fight iq is so high its ridiculous. it takes a lot to not get dragged into a brawl after being slapped and taunted. instead of getting dragged into a brawl, he continued to keep diaz off balance with his footwork and land some seriously heavy shots. everyone knows diaz got a great chin and heart, but even i was suprised that some of those shots didnt drop diaz. i think it was the 4th and 5th rounds that condit would land consecutive strives and diaz wouldnt even pursue him. dats y i hate the fans saying diaz won the fight. any1 watching that fight knos diaz wasnt allowed to do SHIT he normally does that brings victory.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Dude I know you love Condit, and he may have said that in front of the cameras, but when they were around each other at press conferences when cameras weren’t around Condit was challenging him to a brawl. Plus talking shit on twitter about a brawl. Now Nick ain’t no saint, but Condit just came off slimy and then his current stance of shelving the ww to wait for GSP is another pussy move in many people’s mind. It’s probably smart these frickin fights are like being in a car accident and if he were to lose he knows he would be done for years. So he is being calculating, but it just makes someone think he is a bit weak. I suppose it all be worked out by end of year.

      I personally just want to see Edgar beat up Aldo….


  11. Jigga says:

    Good assessment wrestling rules+1

  12. Ras Butten says:

    another GSP fight north of the border.

    Always giving that dude the advantage.

  13. trevor from the valley says:

    I think everyone has forgot how bad condit had his ass handed to him in vancouver against rory macdonald!! The kid was beating condits ass and only lost to a bad ref stoppage. Condit loses , gsp vs diaz will happen and diaz will be out then make way for rory macdonald

  14. Monkey juice says:

    Fuckin nerds.

  15. Butthurt Diaz fan! says:

    im still upset that crybaby overrated diaz lost. so now i hate condit. im going to say that he ”ran” as an excuse as to why nick lost.

  16. K-Fed says:

    I already dont like GSP, but there is something about his face in this picture. I just want to punch it.
