Remember when Johny Hendricks (Pictured) put Martin Kampmann to sleep with a thunderous left hand and UFC president Dana White immediately anointed him the welterweight top contender? Well, fast forward just 19 days and it appears MMA’s big boss has changed course.
And to the surprise of nobody, the bearded brawler is not too pleased.
Bad news travels fast in the Twitter universe. Only minutes after White proclaimed he would likely grant 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre his wish by allowing him to defend his throne against Nick Diaz in his next outing, Hendricks let the world know his next dibs status should have never been revoked.
“I don’t really know what to say but please @danawhite give me a shot @GeorgesStPierre if u want a fight I will give him anything he can take,” Hendricks tweeted. “I have to agree with that as well let him win one then if @GeorgesStPierre gets through me then let him fight ND.
“No I know my power is going no where only getting stronger and faster but why wait when it’s my time lol.”
Hendricks then took his frustrations a step further by suggesting he’ll ride the pine until he gets his opportunity at the crown.
“Yes I will sit out if I don’t get a title shot,” Hendricks added. “Bc I don’t want to fight anyone without the belt u see.”
When a fan said “Bigg Rigg” should tear a page out of Diaz’s book and talk his way into a title tilt by telling GSP, “Don’t be scared, homie,” Hendricks chuckled because that’s something he couldn’t do because “…I know he is scared.”
White quickly tried to step in and calm the waters by letting the lefty know that his time will come.
“I agree that u deserve it and u will get ur shot,” White tweeted.
No word on when GSP and Diaz will throw down or who Hendricks will have to fight in the interim.
BEST OF MAXIM
Apparently, every UFC champion is scared to fight their top contender. First Johny Hendricks accused welterweight king Georges St-Pierre of quaking in his bare feet, and now Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’s camp is claiming freshly-minted bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey (Pictured) is avoiding a tango with their client. When UFC president Dana White decided to dabble in women’s...
What does a 12-month marijuana suspension get you? Well, according to UFC president Dana White, Nick Diaz gets next dibs at Georges St-Pierre’s (Pictured) welterweight crown once his ban is lifted. White made the announcement following Thursday’s press conference in Seattle. The rivals were slated to meet in the most anticipated 170-pound affair in MMA history at UFC 137. However...
"Georges St Pierre came back from vacation and the fight that he said [he wants] ...I have unfinished business with Nick Diaz that's the fight that I want." - UFC President Dana White
What Georges wants, Georges will get. Fans will debate that Johny Hendricks is the true #1 contender for St. Pierre's strap. I can't say that I disagree. St. Pierre vs. Diaz,...
Johny Hendricks is pissed. After what was billed to be a title elimination fight at UFC 154, Johny Hendricks fully expected a title shot after knocking out Martin Kampmann with ease. But, anything is possible in MMA, and now coming off a loss and a 1-year suspension, Nick Diaz is apparently getting a shot a [...]
If you were waiting for the Anderson Silva vs. GSP UFC fight, you’ll have to keep waiting. GSP has officially declined the fight and instead hopes to settle a long standing grudge with Nick Diaz once Diaz returns from suspension.
An emotional Dominick Cruz (Pictured) appeared on this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight to address his second knee operation in six months. While many question whether “The Dominator” will ever be the same following his extended hiatus, Cruz will use the experience and successes of Georges St-Pierre’s ACL surgery as a blueprint for his return to glory.
Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) and Johny Hendricks (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) may just have to wait their turn.
Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) has asked to face former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC), and UFC President Dana White said he feels obligated to grant the UFC welterweight champ his request.
The UFC boss on Thursday revealed the plans following a UFC...
