JOHNY HENDRICKS RUMORS

Robbie Lawler-Matt Brown title eliminator to headline UFC on FOX 12

The UFC’s July 26th visit to San Jose finally has a headliner, and it was well worth the wait. UFC President Dana White announced via his Twitter account that top ranked welterweights Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown will headline UFC on FOX 12. The five round main event will see the winner earning a shot at Johny Hendricks’ UFC championship. Lawler looked better than ever this past...

Get ready to barf – Johny Hendricks’ bicep surgery photos, before and after

Johny Hendricks injured his bicep a few weeks out from UFC 171, then ended up taking a meat cleaver or something to it during the actual fight with Robbie Lawler, and what follows are the before and after photos. They look like some sort of sausage making photos or something. I don’t even know. I hate this and I’m personally holding this against Marcos. I didn’t ask to see...

Johny Hendricks Waits Patiently For Bicep Surgery

The new UFC welterweight champ is getting ready for surgery to fix his right bicep, an injury he sustained while in training camp for UFC 171.  Hendricks will need about two months to recover from this injury and another couple of months to get back into shape before his first title defense.  That probably isn’t to much more time than he would have taken off anyway but I would...

Johny Hendricks weighs-in on fight day at 195 pounds

Is the Dolce Diet the new TRT? I grew up around wrestlers spitting into cups and smoking cigarettes so they didn’t eat (truth) just so they could make weight. That was obviously the wrong way to make weight, and we’ve seen after years and years of crazy weight cuts on TUF the lengths these fighters will go in order to make the fight ‘fair’ and weigh in the same amount at...

Johny Hendricks Makes Weight, Still Fights for Title at UFC 171

“Bigg Rigg” was not too big to be a welterweight after all. After initially clocking 171.5 pounds on his first attempt on the scale Friday, 1.5 pounds over the limit for an MMA welterweight title affair, Johny Hendricks (pictured) used the two additional hours permitted to ultimately shed the excess water weight. Hendricks weighed 170 pounds on his second and final try, the same...

Photo: Johny Hendricks Posts Pic of Swollen Knuckles Following UFC 167

It was a rough night for welterweight title challenger Johny Hendricks, who fought a valliant battle against the division’s kingpin in the main event of UFC 167, but failed to get his hand raised in a controversial split decision loss. Following the event, Hendricks posted a photo of his bare hands, showing the sustained damage from attacking the champ for five rounds. Man hands...

Did Johny Hendricks Tap Against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167?

Did you hear about the drama surrounding UFC 167 on Saturday night? No, not that Johny Hendricks (pictured) was (probably) robbed of a decision victory over reigning welterweight king Georges St-Pierre. No, not that GSP unexpectedly announced he’ll be taking a leave from MMA after the controversial verdict was rendered. That the bout never should have been decided by the three...

Nurmagomedov wrestles a bear

Think Johny Hendricks has a great wrestling pedigree? He's got nothing on Khabib Nurmagomedov. Growing up in Russia, the rising UFC lightweight used to wrestle bears. No, really. There's even a video – not-so-aptly set to some bizarre techno-rap remix – of a 9-year-old Nurmagomedov tangling with one. Sure, the cub on the video looks cute and cuddly. But it's still...
