Martin Kampmann comments on his next move at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 Finale post-fight press conference.

Kampmann would like to get the title shot next however he is also willing to fight Johny Hendricks.

“My goal is to fight for the title — that’s where I want to go. Johny has got some great wins, too, and if I have to fight him to get that shot then that’s what we’ll do, but of course I’d like to get the fight with Carlos Condit or Georges St. Pierre … or the winner of that fight. I’m going to need to take a little time off, heal up and go back to Denmark for a little summer vacation. I’m looking forward to that, but I definitely want to fight for the title. That’s what I want…. I would love fight Carlos, you know? But, of course, he wants to fight ‘GSP’ and unify those belts. I don’t blame him. I can can completely understand that. If I was in his situation, I would probably want to get that unification bout as well. It all depends on when ‘GSP’ is going to be ready to fight again — if he’s going to be out a long time, then I think [Carlos] should defend it, but if ‘GSP’ is going to be ready by the end of the year like most people are saying, then I can see him wanting to wait for that.”
