Johny HendricksThe UFC is still awaiting the official word from Georges St-Pierre that he will be ready to go for UFC 154 in Montreal, but the card now officially has its co-main event.

As expected, welterweights Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann will square off in the co-featured bout on the upcoming card headed to Montreal on Nov. 17.

UFC officials made the announcement via UFC Tonight on Tuesday.

Both competitors will look to make a statement as the co-main event with the expected feature bout pitting welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre against Carlos Condit.

Johny Hendricks has been on a tear as of late, picking up wins over Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck, while Kampmann has looked impressive as well with finishes over Thiago Alves and Jake Ellenberger.

Now the two welterweight contenders will fight with a potential title shot awaiting the winner.
