Johny Hendricks' dreams border on nightmares in the weeks leading up to his fights.
In his first several visions, the top UFC welterweight contender loses in a matter of seconds. Hendricks told FOXSports.com he's lost to Saturday's UFC 158 opponent, Carlos Condit, several times in his mind already.
"He's gotten me in an armbar. He's knocked me out," Hendricks said. "He's beaten me in about every way possible. I've seen so many of his fights and what he's done to win that they make it into my dreams."
Hendricks said his subconscious has run wild since his junior year at Oklahoma State in 2006, where he went 29-1 and repeated as the NCAA champ in the 165-pound division. The dreams have continued ever since, even if he's lost many more times in his mind than he has on the wrestling mat (Hendricks' only defeat as a senior came in the NCAA championship match) or in the cage (Hendricks has lost once in 15 career pro fights).

I really hate using exclamation points in titles. As a matter of fact, I don't think I ever have. Until now. This week has just been insane, and tonight is the first night I've been able to gain computer access for a minute. It's a long story and I'm not going to bore you with it.
