The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Hendricks will stay the squeaky wheel until he gets his shot. I suppose I cannot blame him, seeing that has been a successful route for guys like Sonnen. The way he is going about it though, and what he says, is annoying the fuck out of a lot of people, including myself.
The highest ranked fighter he's beaten is Fitch, IMO. Even though Diaz lost to Condit, I still feel Diaz is higher ranked than Hendricks. And of course, Condit is higher as well. Hendricks needs to beat one of those two to be deserving of a shot, so I think matching him against Condit is highly appropriate. I see no problem whatsoever with how the UFC is handling this.
Big problem for Hendricks is that he is overlooking Condit, which is a massive mistake. I think Condit will beat him handily, and hopefully put an end to all of this shit.
