Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story Signed for UFC 139 in San Jose on November 19

(The UFC is calling this ‘a potential Fight of the Night’)

A welterweight scrap between Martin Kampmann and Rick Story has been added to UFC 139, which is scheduled for November 19 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

The UFC announced the bout Wednesday.

0-2 in his last two outings after being on the wrong end of two razor-close decisions to Jake Shields at UFC 121 and Diego Sanchez at UFC Live: Sanchez vs. Kampmann, “Hitman” will be looking to get back into title contention and into the win column by decisively beating Story. He feels that he won both of his last two fights, which will likely motivate him not to leave things to the judges the next time.

“The Horror,” who is also coming off of a loss — his first since 2009, won’t be giving up a win easily. He was upset by late replacement Charlie Brenneman who stepped in for Story’s original opponent at UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry, Nate Marquardt, who was denied a license for the June event in Pittsburgh due to elevated levels of testosterone. Prior to that Story, who replaced injured Anthony Johnson on the card against Marquardt, defeated former number one UFC welterweight contender Thiago Alves by unanimous decision at UFC 130 one month earlier.

The card will be headlined by a heavyweight title bout between champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos and will likely feature the return of Josh Koscheck who has been sidelined while rehabbing a broken orbital bone he suffered in his UFC 124 welterweight championship bout with Georges St-Pierre in December. Also on the card will be a bantamweight bout between Brian Bowles and Urijah Faber, a middleweight bout between Chris Weidman and Tom Lawlor and a lightweight bout between Gleison Tibau and Rafael dos Anjos.

@ dcmsm, I didn't say he won the striking. He held his own means he wasn't completely dominated by a better striker, or he landed decent shots of his own, which is what happened

Story did indeed beat Alves but he didn't win the standup exchanges by any stretch of the imagination. Just because he didn't get knocked out or dropped by strikes doesn't mean that he was holding his own.

Yeah I thought Story at least held his own while striking with Alves, It definately wasn't one sided

Story boxed the fuck out of Alves and pushed him to the cage. Watch that fight again you fags.

when did kampmann and story get released from the auschwitz?

LMAO Story is getting what he asked for. Expect him to pussy out and try to wall'n'stall/lay'n'pray his way to another decision like he did to alves. No way he stands in front of Kampmann and lives.

So good. Love to watch kap another guy who could lose 4 in a row and be kept on the roster. Will totally steal as well.

Chris Weidman has been impressive so far. Hope he stays on a roll and gets a title fight maybe the end of 2012 or early 2013. The judges don't seem to like Kampmann so Kampmann needs to finish Story. Not sure how Cain will perform after a long layoff, but regardless of that, I want to see JDS win the title!
danomite- August 17, 2011 at 10:33 am
well, Story got what he asked for. I bet he fights Kampmann the smae way he fought Alves.
skeletor- August 17, 2011 at 10:27 am
Looking forward to this fight. Lets see if Story will actually stand with Kampannlike he claims. I hope so because he will get fucked up.
