Rick Story is, was, and has been overrated ever since he beat Thiago Alves. He dropped two straight fights to Charlie Brenneman—who was demolished by Anthony Johnson—and now has lost one to Martin Kampmann, who was on a two-fight losing streak.
Sure, Kampmann rightfully SHOULD be on a five-fight winning streak. But the fact is he was not given his last two fights and therefore was on a losing streak.
Despite these things, he came in and set everyone straight. He's still one of the best fighters at 170.
Yet, Kampmann still has quite a bit of improving to do, especially with his offensive take-downs, seeing as he definitely had trouble getting the kick-boxer to the ground.
I think a fair next fight for Kampmann would be someone in the top ten. I think a Jake Shields rematch would be very good for everyone to see. If he's not available, then BJ Penn would be a very good test for him.
Also, I think Story should be fed someone who is in the 20-15 range, to keep him relevant.
