The 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.

I don't know if there's a fight announced right now that I find more appealing than this one. I can't wait to see how it plays out.

WAR KAMPMANN!

I love "happy bearded guy", but damn do I want to see Kampmann fighting for the title. Hard for me to root against either guy

We'll see which Kampmann shows up. If it's the one who outgrappled Story, he should take the decision. If not, that cage clinch from happy beard guy will be an exhausting grind for Kamp. I hope to see Kamp light him up on the feet, but that's usually when Hendricks closes the distance and takes it to the cage.
