Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story Scheduled for UFC 139 in San Jose

via i54.tinypic.com

The UFC announced the booking of an intriguing welterweight bout for the November 19th UFC 139 card at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, California, with Martin Kampmann set to take on Rick Story:

Welterweight contenders Rick Story and Martin Kampmann will return to the Octagon this November in a bout guaranteed to produce fireworks.

"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," said UFC President Dana White.

Both men are tremendously talented but have suffered recent setbacks that have knocked them down the always-stacked welterweight ladder by a few pegs. A win for either would be huge in terms of regaining their footing in the 170 lb rankings.

Loss Diego Sanchez (unam. decision) - UFC on Versus 3
Loss Jake Shields (split decision) - UFC 121
