Video: Rory MacDonald sits cageside for Johny Hendricks' knockout of Martin Kampmann at UFC 154

On the latest edition of "UFC Ultimate Insider" on FUEL TV, UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald was features on the "Full Blast" segment where he provided real-time thoughts on the UFC 154 co-main event of Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann, which took place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in November 2011.

It's always interesting watching fighter take in mixed martial arts (MMA) bouts, especially if the match up unfolding in front of them is relevant to their future.

At UFC 154: "St. Pierre vs. Condit" last November, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Rory MaDonald was planted cageside to watch the co-main event bout between fellow elite 170-pound fighters Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann.

The fight was quick and decisive as less than one minute into the first round Hendricks connected with a perfect right hook, straight left combination that sent "The Hitman" flying backwards to the ground and notified the rest of the division who one of the top contenders is.

On the most recent edition of on FUEL TV's "UFC Ultimate Insider", the UFC released footage of when they proped a camera next to MacDonald (and his good friend Mike Ricci) while the fight between Hendricks and Kampmann was going down to get his live reaction.

Like many, MacDonald was stunned by the ferociousness of the fight result and even throws out a little challenge towards Hendricks, saying, "I might have to put it on this guy."

It's unlikely a Hendricks vs. MacDonald fight would happen anytime soon, though, as "Bigg Rigg" is scheduled to fight Carlos Condit at UFC 158 next Saturday night (March 16, 2013), while "Ares" is currently on the sidelines recovering from a recent neck injury.

Watch above as MacDonald sits cageside and shares his thoughts on one of the most brutal knockouts of the UFC's 2012 campaign goes down in front of his eyes in this edition "Full Blast".
