Johny Hendricks news is up and “Bigg Rigg” says he is willing to face the UFC’s top four welterweights today. The champion fighter also implied that he is not too concerned about Georges St-Pierre ‘s comeback.
The current 170-pound champion spoke with Chael Sonnen and Kenny Florian on the show
at Fox Sports to discuss the current crop of top welterweights, namely Robbie Lawler, Rory Macdonald, Tyron Woodley, and Matt Brown.
“Realistically, I don’t care,” Hendricks said. “I’mma have to fight one of them. I’mma have to fight Lawler again, or fight Brown, or Rory Macdonald, or Tyron Woodley. Again, it doesn’t matter.”
Johny Hendricks’ road to the title was not a short one. Being part of one of the deepest, most talent-laden weight class in the UFC is no easy feat, but “Bigg Rigg” managed to barrel through the likes of Carlos Condit, Martin Kampmann, and Jon Fitch before getting to the top spot to face then champion Georges St-Pierre.
So when he was asked about how he would feel when “GSP” does decide to make a UFC comeback, Johny Hendricks had his usual sense of confidence in his answer.
“I’d love to have the rematch, don’t get me wrong,” Hendricks said. “I’m trying to make my own legacy, and if he’s part of it, that’ll be great. If not, I don’t care.”
“Bigg Rigg’s” last fight against Robbie Lawler was proof that despite his prior defeat to Georges St-Pierre, he can still be focused enough to eventually reach his end goal.
But he did admit that the loss to Georges St-Pierre still bothered him, and he still firmly believes that he won the said fight.
“I re-watch, and I re-watch, and I re-watch, and the best I can do is 3 (rounds) to 2,” Hendricks explained.
