A pivotal welterweight clash between Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks has been tapped as the co-main event for UFC 154 in Montreal. UFC officials announced the match-up earlier on Wednesday.
A win by Kampmann or Hendricks, who are top tier welterweights, could establish who is next in line for a title shot. Kampmann (20-5), who has won his last three outings, is coming off an impressive first round technical knockout of Jake Ellenberger at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale. Hendricks (13-1) carries a four fight winning streak into UFC 154. He last fought at UFC on FOX 3 where he earned a split decision win over former title challenger Josh Koscheck.
UFC 154 takes place from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 17th. The event is expected to feature the return of welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre who will take on interim champion Carlos Condit.
