There’s hardly ever time to celebrate a victory before the questions start raining in about who or what is next.

For Ultimate Fighter Live finale main event winner Martin Kampmann, the path seems pretty clear, but there are always foggy roads and twists and turns before anything is a done deal.

Just after his exciting second round finish of Jake Ellenberger on Saturday night, commentator Jon Anik pointed towards a potential showdown with former training partner Johny Hendricks with a title shot looming overhead.

Of course, Kampmann has never shied away from a battle and he won’t start now so if Hendricks is next, that’s who he’ll face. If situations change and he could potentially get UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit next or even Georges St-Pierre, those all sound like good ideas to the great Dane.

First up though is some much needed time off.

“My goal is to fight for the title, that’s where I want to go and Johny’s got some great wins too, and if I have to fight him to get that shot then that’s what we’ll do. Of course I’d love to get the fight with (Carlos) Condit or GSP, or the winner of that fight,” Kampmann said at the TUF Live finale post fight press conference.

“I’m going to have to take a little time off, heal up, go back to Denmark for a little summer vacation, I’m looking forward to that, but definitely, I want to fight for the title. That’s what I want.”

It has to be noted that Kampmann is currently the only fighter that has a win over interim champion Carlos Condit in the UFC, so that rematch is definitely something that interests him.

Currently, Condit is waiting for UFC champion Georges St-Pierre to finish rehab on his surgically repaired knee to heal up and then face him later this year to unify the welterweight titles.

If he was in Condit’s spot, Kampmann admits he’d probably play the waiting game too.

“I would love to fight Carlos, but of course he’d want to fight GSP, he’s want to unify those belts, and I don’t blame him. I can completely understand that and if I was in his situation I’d probably want to get that unification bout as well, but it all depends on when GSP’s going to be ready to fight again,” said Kampmann.

“If GSP’s going to be out a long time then I think he should defend it, but if GSP’s ready at the end of the year like most people are saying, then I can see why he’d want to wait for that and get that unification bout.”

Kampmann knows nothing is guaranteed until he gets a contract in hand so if it’s Johny Hendricks’ name on the dotted line he’ll sign just the same as if it’s Carlos Condit or Georges St-Pierre.

“You don’t know you have the title shot until the bout agreements are signed,” said Kampmann. “I try not to look ahead.”

The good thing for Kampmann is that with winning all roads will eventually lead to a shot at the UFC welterweight title.
