Thread: Injured UFC champ Johny Hendricks ready for whoever

  1. Default Injured UFC champ Johny Hendricks ready for whoever

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mma-ca...163427187.html

    Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks appeared on UFC Tonight this week and addressed the topic of who he may fight next. Top contenders Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown are set to face one another with a title shot on the line.

    Right below them, Tyron Woodley and Rory MacDonald will also square up against one another. Hendricks, who is still recovering from a torn biceps injury, says that he simply doesn't care who he fights next.

    "You know, realistically, I don't care," he said.

    "I'm going to have to fight one of them. I'm going to have to fight Lawler again or Brown, or Rory MacDonald or Tyron Woodley. Again, doesn't matter. Doesn't matter."

    Hendricks went on to say that Lawler vs. Brown is too close to call and that he could also see MacDonald vs. Woodley going either way. "Tyron Woodley could easily wrestle him or out-strike him," he began.

    "Or, Rory MacDonald could keep him at bay with that jab like he did to a couple of other guys."

    When asked by UFC Tonight co-host Chael Sonnen if he still thinks about Georges St. Pierre, Hendricks was to the point. "I don't," he said.
    Hendricks lost a controversial decision to St. Pierre before then winning the vacant title after St. Pierre vacated his belt and took a leave of absence from competition.

    Now, St. Pierre is once more recovering from a torn ACL, and will be out for some time, even if he intends to return to fighting at some point in the future. Whatever GSP ends up doing, Hendricks says he isn't too concerned.

    "I'd love to have the rematch - don't get me wrong," he concluded.

    "But, if [St. Pierre] never came back, it wouldn't bother me none. I'm trying to make my own legacy and if he's part of it, that would be great. If not, I don't care."

    Gotta suck knowing your only the champion because the guy that beat you desided he was done with fighting. I think Robbie takes the rematch, he has looked amazing, and doesnt seem to be slipping up or just head hunting.

    Best attitude to have when talking about defending your title. I really like the welterweight division now that everyone is no longer fighting for second place.

    I think he wipes the floor with Robbie if he had a half decent game plan. He played right into Lawler's strengths, and still won. I think he beats Brown and McDonald convincingly. I think Woodley and him would be a great fight. I personally wouldn't be upset with any of those guys as champ, except McDonald. I'm just not a huge fan anymore.

    I agree, He overlooked robbie and had a horrible game plan yet still won. The fight I am most interested in is Woodley. I don't thinik Brown beats McDonald though. I think McDonald destroys Brown.
