Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks each entered UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday night trying to establish himself as the No. 1 welterweight contender, despite what happens to the belt following the main event, but there could be only one.
That one was Johny Hendricks.
In just 46 seconds, Hendricks repeated his sensational performance against Jon Fitch by finishing Kampmann with a right-left combination that left the Danish fighter out cold.
“I just started hitting that combo a week ago; it came to me in a dream,” said Hendricks after the fight, giving his wife a spectacular birthday present.
The victory certainly establishes Hendricks at the No. 1 UFC welterweight contender, but now, he’ll have to sit back and see how the division shakes out. But there is no questioning what Hendricks wants to see happen.
“It feels great. Martin Kampmann, he’s a tough dude. I new I had a chance to go out there and prove I’m the No. 1 contender, but please, please, give me a shot at that belt.”
