From Martin Kampmann’s (20-5) perspective, Georges St-Pierre (22-2) would stand little chance in a possible fight against Anderson Silva (33-4). The welterweight and middleweight champion have been rumored to fight for years with a recent surge lately that it may happen.
“I think [St-Pierre] is going to get knocked out,” said Kampmann to ESPN. “That’s my honest answer.”
Kampmann still wants to see a superfight, but to sub a heavier opponent in light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1).
“I’d much rather see Anderson Silva fight Jon Jones,” said Kampmann. “[Silva] is calling out the smaller guy. I’d like to see him fight Jon Jones. I think that’s a much more interesting fight, and that’s not just from my personal perspective. It’s also from a fan’s perspective.”
Currently all three names being discussed have plans in motion. St-Pierre returns to actions for the first time in over 18 months at UFC 154. After coming off a win in October, Silva has expressed interest in sitting out until late 2013. Jones will coach on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter and fight in April.
As for Kampmann, he also fights at UFC 154 in the co-main event where the winner moves closer to becoming the new No. 1 contender in the welterweight division.
