UFC 139 Shogun vs Henderson
Rick Story is excited to get back into the Octagon and return to his winning ways. His six fight win streak was broken as he agreed to a second fight less than a month removed from his amazing victory over Thiago Alves. Rick has had a few months since his loss to Charlie Brenneman to work on his overall game and to mentally prepare himself for competition. Across the cage will be Martin Kampmann, a competitor who possesses a dynamic combination of striking and grappling. Rick “The Horror” Story has an incredible wrestling base and combines his takedowns with vicious ground and pound, the ability to nullify submissions with a great scramble and an underrated submission game. Story is always ready for any challenge and brings a solid game, a no quit attitude and a passion for competition to every fight. Hayabusa is proud that Rick “The Horror” Story, again, chooses to train and compete in Hayabusa.
