Hendricks Dissapointed At Kampmann Booking, Wanted Title Shot | UFC NEWS

By Jamie McAllister
UFC Welterweight Johny Hendricks comments in an interview with MMA Fighting.

In his last two bouts Hendricks defeated two of the divisions top welterweights knocking out Jon Fitch and defeating Josh Koscheck via a split decision.

It now appears that Hendricks will be facing Martin Kampmann at UFC 154 in the co-main event with Georges St. Pierre fighting interim champ Carlos Condit in the main event.

Here is what Hendricks had to say on the booking.

“It is what it is. I feel like I fought the best guys at 170 in our division and I’ve won, but it looks like I have to get through one more person, and that’s just the way it goes. You can either sit here and complain about it or you can sit there and do your best to win it.”

“Of course you’re disappointed. You get promised a title shot and then something happens and it doesn’t happen. But then again, that’s the nature of this business. There’s always good fights going on, you just have to win each one.”

“I’m training for a five-round fight because if one of them gets hurt, I got to take my opportunity when I can.”

      HAHAHAHA WOW. u… are…. Foolish.
      Kampmann Overatted? no way. you are just foolish.
      If Kampmann is overrated then why was he able too recover from Jake E and KO him?
      if hes overrated why was he able to keep his composure when Thiago A had him a step behind, and Capitalize on a huge mistake Thiago made? hmm overrated people give up and quit…. and UMMM KAMPMANN DOES NOT QUICK. THIS IS GONNA BE A GERAT FIGHT.
      Between Kampmann and Hendricks.

        aw sad times. let this be a lesson for you out there who enjoy good grammer.
        or you’ll end up typing that Kampmann’s quick, instead of KAMPMANN NEVER QUITE’s!

  2. Zack says:

    Hendricks is overrated. He got a lucky knockout against snooze fest Fitch and then he had a boring fight with kos and Could’ve lost. All I’ve been hearing from Johnny is cry baby talk.

  3. B-rad says:

    hendricks is going to be even more disapointed when he gets tko’d too. The juggernaut is a more dangerous opponent than johny IMO

  4. B-rad says:

    @ lol your either a troll, or have 0 knowledge about mixed martial arts if you think kampmann is overrated. One of the most technical kickboxers with sick submission skills, yea sounds like sucks -____-

  5. Nick says:

    Looks like a good fight. This one can go either way.

  6. WrestlingRules says:

    Yah Kampmann takes this easily. Hendricks can’t keep him down and Hendricks is second class to Kampmann. on the feet. Kampmann beats him up for 3 and tko in the 4th. or a sub……Kampmann vs GSP once GSP shuts down Condit.

  7. B-rad says:

    dude if you think diego beat kampmann you either did not watch that fight or sanchez bought you a house because he got fucked up watch the video of the post fight interview both of his eyes were closed and his nose was smashed, kampmann was just sweaty and pissed off lol

  8. B-rad says:

    i think hendricks is whining cause he wanted a shot at a fake strap instead of getting stopped by kampmann

  9. I second both those statements b-rad. Sanchez’s face got turned into ground chuck…as for hendricks, if he was truly confident in his abilities this article wouldn’t exist. He would shut up and take anyone the ufc put infront of him to get to the top.

  10. SmoothAssNigga says:

    All Hendricks got is a left hand his boxing is sloppy. Not too sure how he outlanded Kos, specially in the first round.

    Kampmann just dealt with a right hand version of Hendricks with a better/cleaner overall boxing and kick boxing game. So long as Kampmann can stay focus and watch out for the left he will be fine.

  11. Mike b says:

    I agree with most of the comments I’ve read.when Hendricks ko’d Fitch he just kept saying I want a title shot over and over it was pretty annoying.impressive win butt I felt he still needed to prove himself a little bit more.and the koshcheck fight could’ve went either way.all that complaining will stop when kampmann beats his fucking ass.

  12. Yeas says:

    Agreed. He beat both Fitch and Koscheck, both were top 10s in the division for years. He deserves a title shot.
