UFC 154 video: Martin Kampmann practices his beard choke for Johny Hendricks fight

Johny Hendricks has a thick, bushy beard and a small neck. That means Martin Kampmann needs to work on his beard choke, right? Wait ... what?

How is Martin Kampmann preparing for his co-main event bout against Johny Hendricks at UFC 154: "St. Pierre vs. Condit" on Sat., Nov. 17, 2012, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada?

He's practicing his beard choke.

Sounds silly, no? That's because it is but "Big Rig" rocks a big old bushy beard and "The Hitman" is just making sure all the bases are covered.

Or he likes beards in a weird way and we're just not prepared to accept that at this time.
