    Default Johny Hendricks thinks GSP is scared to fight him

    The UFC’s No. 1 ranked welterweight, Johny Hendricks, is growing tired of champion Georges St. Pierre.

    Hendricks called out GSP after his last victory but he finds himself on the outside looking in while GSP defends his belt against rival Nick Diaz at UFC 158.

    Hendricks will be fighting Carlos Condit on March 16, in the co-main event of UFC 158, stepping in place of the injured Rory MacDonald .

    Hendricks spoke to MMAmania.com during a recent appearance on The Verbal Submission about a number of things, including St. Pierre being scared of him.

    “I’ve been saying even more that he might be scared,” Hendricks said. “I do not know why he didn’t take the fight. All I know is he just proved what I thought. I am the number one contender. GSP should be fighting me and no one else. Why he didn’t, only he knows and his camp knows.”

    Hendricks also had some choice words on the hypothesis that GSP will fight Anderson Silva after the Diaz fight.

    “If I ever saw him, I’d probably slap him,” Hendricks said. “Like, really? If that happens, then everything that we believed is true. Everything we’ve talked about, everything all the fans are trying to figure out, we know it’s true. Here’s what I really believe. He wants to finish on top. What if he retires after this fight? That’s something I’ve thought about too. What if he retires, then comes back out of it and fights Anderson Silva. That sucks. You always want to retire when you’re on top and not when you’re on your way out.”

    is the word hate to strong of a word? because im begining to hate this fool more and more each day. GSP is not scared of you, not even a little bit. Your ass kicking is coming to you dont worry about that, GSP isnt retiring anytime soon.

    I cant wait to sit back and watch the Natural Born Killer add another guy to his list in montreal. Hopefully that will shut him up for good.

    I guess GSP and Dana White haven't done a good enough job of publicly communicating that GSP wants to fight Diaz to settle the bad blood from last year and that GSP-Diaz is the fight that the fans want to see more.

    If I know why this fight is happening and Hendricks doesn't, then the problem isn't in the communication from the UFC or GSP and his camp. The problem is that Hendricks needs to get his head out of the sand. Maybe he's let his ridiculous beard grow over his ears.

    I can totally understand Hendricks' point of believing that the #1 contender should get the title shot, but it's one thing to disagree with the decision. To claim that he doesn't even know the reasons for it is a completely different story.

    Maybe he's trying to get GSP pissed off because he saw what happened when Nick Diaz called GSP "scared".

    He has a legitimate point about being the number 1 contender, and now he is using it to insult/shame GSP publicly to secure a fight.

    He knows Georges isn't scared, this is just an attempt to garner attention so he doesn't get passed over again (if he actually defeats Condit) and build a "bad blood" angle of his own.
    Absolutely. Just like Ellenberger is talking shit to Hendricks.

    You basically just said everything I did, except you obviously didn't read the quote from Hendricks.

    Hendricks said. “I do not know why he didn’t take the fight. All I know is he just proved what I thought. I am the number one contender. GSP should be fighting me and no one else. Why he didn’t, only he knows and his camp knows.”

    If he's going to claim not to know and mention that only GSP and his camp knows why Diaz is getting the shot then he deserves to be called an idiot for being unaware of something that has been published publicly countless times.

    Hendricks should shut up and accept the fact that there are things he can't control and focus his energy on defeating Condit. If he does, there will be no reason, excuse or argument as to why Hendricks shouldn't get the title shot. He won't even need to trash talk.

    He knows exactly why Diaz got the shot and not him. And that's why he's playing dumb and not admitting it.

    Why would you think I didn't read the quote? I'm saying that Hendricks is being coy about it. He doesn't want to come right out and say, "people find Diaz is more entertaining than me and has a bigger fan base."

    He wants people to think that it didn't make any logical sense for GSP to choose Diaz over him, and that it was some kind of illogical decision possibly driven by fear.

    You're saying that maybe he is trying to get GSP angry, or maybe he really is just that stupid.

    I'm flat out saying he knows what is going on and he knows what he is doing.

    I think you're just upset that he is calling out Captain Canada for taking on an undeserving contender.

    What you don't get is that Hendricks is a company guy. If Hendricks comes out and says all Georges cares about is the money and the UFC doesn't care about the legitimacy of the sport, then he gets treated worse than Fitch has his entire career.

    If Hendricks was not a company guy then he would not have agreed to a fight with Condit. It's manufactured drama and very novice at that. Hendricks doesn't know how to talk a good game and has been given the nudge to do so.

    Lashing out at the boss by missing media appearances is something only a meathead would do.

    Hendricks feels like he has to talk his way into a title fight I'm guessing. I really hope Condit beats his one-dimensional game.

    Blame Dana and Joe Silva for all of this shit. As soon as they started granting Sonnen/Bisping/Diaz title shots and No. 1 contender bouts based on shit talking and call outs this monster was born. Somewhere, Vince McMahon is chuckling just a little bit harder
