Dan Hardy or Jake Shields? Doesn't matter to Martin Kampmann...


Props: MMA Weekly


"Dan Hardy would be a great fight I think. Alves and Fitch are matched up, and Hardy don't have an opponent right now. He's fighting right around the same time I'd like to go. I'd like to fight around October, maybe in November, so that fight would be perfect for me. I'd be happy to take that fight for sure. [Jake Shields] would definitely be a good fight as well. He's tough and he's ranked real high in the welterweight division. For good reason, I didn't expect him to beat (Dan) Henderson, he's definitely good. I'm ready for whoever. I just want to fight guys that's ranked in the top ten, top five. The higher the better."

A motivated and resurgent Martin Kampmann, fresh of his UFC 115 win over Paulo Thiago, sets his sights on the rest of the UFC welterweight division -- starting with Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy. Of course it would be just fine for "The Hitman" if he was the UFC welcoming committee for Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields, who may (or may not) sign with the world's largest fight promotion at some point this summer. Anyone think the Dane is biting off more than he can chew? Or is Kampmann good enough to hang with either fighter?
