And that "somebody" would be Ricky Story, who faces the former middleweight at the upcoming UFC 139 pay-per-view on Nov. 19 in San Jose, California.
Kampmann (17-5) is coming off a "Nightmare" decision at UFC on Versus 3 to division wildman Diego Sanchez. His unanimous decision loss to "The Dream" was his second straight defeat -- and the second that could have very easily been scored in his favor.
According to Kampmann (via Buddha Sport), the days of going to the judges' scorecards are over:
"I think Rick Story is a real tough opponent. He comes forward and he's a great wrestler but he can punch too so I think it will be a war. His wrestling is definitely the strongest part of his game but I'm prepared for that. I'm not going to let him take me down. If he does get me to the ground, I will pop right back up and punish him. No wrestler is ever going to hold me down. I am sick of letting these fights go to the judge's decision, especially the way the decisions have been going in my last two fights. I beat Diego up pretty badly and he has got the scars to prove it. I won that fight. I'm not looking to go the distance ever again. I plan on going in and finishing Rick Story. I'm here to whoop somebody's ass and make a statement."
Story (13-4), who was expected to headline opposite the hormonally-challenged Nate Marquardt, was instead upset by the late-replacement "Spaniard" and sent back to the middle of the pack.
A loss here, for either man, will likely eliminate them from title contention for the foreseeable future.
