Martin Kampmann in an interview with MMAweekly Radio.
Kampmann recently defeated Jake Ellenberger finishing him in the second round in an action packed fight. Following the win Kampmann was slated to receive a title shot against Interim Champion Carlos Condit. However now it seems Kampmann will be facing Johny Hendricks in a bout to determine who will get the chance to fight for the Welterweight title.
After a busy start to the year facing Thiago Alves in March & Ellenberger in June Kampmann comments on taking some time off and healing up.
“I’m looking forward just to taking some time off and come home and see the family, and heal up. Then when I come back, I’ll be 100-percent and back in hard training mode,”
Kampmann defeated Condit in April of 2009 via split decision, recently Condit has been vocal about a rematch if St Pierre has not returned by November.
“Sounds great to me, I’m down, I want to fight Carlos. I want to get that title,”
“Carlos, he wants that rematch; he’s told me so himself. Of course now that he’s got the belt, I’d be more than happy to give it to him. It’s a perfect opportunity for me to step in.”
However it seems like St Pierre will now make his return by November and the unification bout with Condit will go ahead.
“I can’t do much besides waiting and heal up,” said Kampmann. “If it’s a title fight, I’ll take that on any day. I can’t do much, I can’t change stuff how everything’s going to go in the UFC. The UFC makes all the decisions in the end.”Tags: condit, featured, hendricks, kampmann, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news, welterweight
