St-Pierre vs. Condit, Hendricks vs. Kampmann at UFC 154 in Montreal

UFC president Dana White announced Friday that the promotion is targeting a fight between Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann for UFC 154, possibly as the co-main event to an expected headliner between undisputed champ Georges St-Pierre and interim champ Carlos Condit. UFC 154 takes place from Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 17th, 2012.

White made the announcement following “UFC on FX 3: Johnson vs. McCall,” which took place Friday at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The welterweight fight represents a contingency plan in case St-Pierre, who’s still recovering from a torn ACL, is unable to fight at the November event.

Hendricks claimed his top spot by defeating Josh Koscheck at UFC on FOX 3: Diaz vs. Miller, which brought his current win streak to four. Kampmann, meanwhile, continued his run with a TKO of Jake Ellenberger at The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale this past week.
