Give credit where credit is due. Martin Kampmann lasted four times in his bout with Johny Hendricks tonight than Jon Fitch did last December.
Hendricks tried to lay out Kampmann early with that power left but "The Hitman" wasn't having it. So "Big Rig" had to get a little sneaky. He set up the power left with a right, and that left put out the lights of one of the most durable men in the division, in just 46 seconds. This means it took Hendricks exactly just one minute to dispose of two top five welterweights in Jon Fitch and Martin Kampmann in two out of his last three fights. Sandwich in that split-decision win over Josh Koscheck and you have a clear cut #1 contender for the UFC Welterweight title. There is no other choice. Add Johny Hendricks left hand to the list of the most dangerous weapons in combat history.
Final Result: Johny Hendricks (14-1) defeats Martin Kampmann (20-6) via KO (left hand of doom) (Round 1, 0:46)
