UFC Announces Rick Story-Martin Kampmann For UFC 139

UFC 139, which takes place in November, has added a welterweight contest between Rick Story and Martin Kampmann.

“A potential fight of the night has been verbally agreed to as Rick ‘The Horror’ Story will face Martin ‘The Hitman’ Kampmann at UFC 139,” UFC President Dana White said.

UFC 139 is set for November 19 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The main event is scheduled to feature Cain Velasquez defending his heavyweight title against Junior dos Santos.

Story (13-4) is coming off a loss to Charlie Brenneman that snapped a six-fight win streak. Brenneman replaced Nate Marquardt on short notice and earned the decision.

Kampmann (17-5) has dropped back-to-back decisions to Diego Sanchez and Jake Shields. He last won in early 2010 against Paulo Thiago.

Two other matches have been set for the card, as Urijah Faber meets Brian Bowles at bantamweight, and Chris Weidman faces Tom Lawlor at middleweight.
