Johny Hendricks Out To Prove He Deserves Title Shot With Win Over Kampmann | UFC NEWS


“I know everything counts on this. My whole focus is on this fight. For the most part, a lot of the submissions he gets are guillotines. I think it’s like four guillotines he’s got or something like that. I know his last one he got a guillotine on Thiago Alves.

I taught Martin Kampmann how to wrestle. I taught him how to defend shots for the longest time. To finally get to fight somebody like that, I’m just so excited. I can’t wait, like nothing else matters but that day. I’m going to be trying to hurt people.

“If I do see an opportunity, I will go in for the kill. It’s shown in a lot of my fights. You know, I’m not going to be dumb and try to just pull out a three round win. I don’t want to be a predictable fighter, that’s what I strive for.

“I didn’t have that much confidence in myself. Now, I believe that I am where I’m at. I believe that I should be fighting in the UFC and I should be fighting for a title. I get one more chance to say ‘yes, I am the number one contender, I do deserve that title shot.'”

  1. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Hendricks should be everyones favorite fighter for what he did to Fitch. Maybe only second to Hendo’s KO of Bisping as best moment in UFC history. Hendricks probably gained a million fans that nite

    • thats dumb says:

      straight up, hes a super exciting fighter. im one of those ppl who became a fan after the ko over fitch

      • David M says:

        I was alrteady a fan of Hendricks but I couldn’t agree with you more it was my 2nd favorite moment in UFC history besides hendo bisping

    • david says:

      You’re an idiot. It was no ko it was a fast call by the ref. If the ref had not made that bad, fast call Fitch would have come back to grind out a win. Fitch may not be very exciting but he wins

  2. stonerman says:

    How can you not like johny hendricks. He knocked out jon fitch, the best moment in the ufc.

  3. Josiah says:

    Johny Hendricks is a very powerful fighter strong wrestling skills and a wicked knockout power but its about time Kampmann gets his title shot. Kampman will establish his distance and pick Hendricks apart from the outside with his superior technical striking skills and if Hendricks will shoot a double we all know what will happen. peace!

  4. Mike b says:

    I like both of these guys,Hendricks has ko power for sure,but if powerful guys like drew mcfredies,ellenburger,alves,and Paul daily can’t ko him I don’t think Johnny will be able to.kampmann,I think has one of the best chins in mma.he can take a fu*king beating and come back from adversity like no other fighter I’ve seen.I think kampmann will use his technical striking to win him a UD.

  5. Piccolo says:

    Excellent. Just one more fight after this and you’ll be set for a title shot. Just oooone more
