15

During the filming for the UFC 167 promo, UFC welterweight title contender Johny Hendricks suffered second degree burns on his neck according to his manager Ted Ehrhardt who spoke with MMAFighting.com regarding the incident. The injury occurred after lights were placed too close to Hendricks back.

Ehrhardt went on to say that Hendricks attempted to return to training two days later but the pain and discomfort prevented him from staying active. A trip to the doctor and a prescription for a healing ointment, Hendricks was able to return to training and will still be in the cage for his bout against Georges St. Pierre at UFC 167.

Below is a picture of the burns:
