Dana White On Why Hendricks Deserves Title Shot And Gustafsson Didn’t

After UFC 167’s controversial title match between Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks, there were many media members and fans believing that it was quite similar to a recent title match, that of Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson. In that fight, many thought Gustafsson won, and deserved an immediate title shot, and many believe Hendricks warranted a rematch with his performance as well.

UFC President Dana White, on the other hand, believes that the aftermath of these fights are not as similar as some people may think.

“The situation was different with that one because Jon said, ‘I already beat him. Now I want to fight Glover Teixeira.’ He goes, ‘I’ll give him the rematch after.’ Jon had this plan where he wanted to beat another contender and then he’d do the rematch,” White told MMAFIGHTING.com, “I respected that. Who’s Georges going to fight?”

“Who would be next? He already fought Condit. Johny deserves this rematch,” White said. “Every fight is different. You can’t look at other situations and go, ‘but in this fight…’ Every fight is different. Johny Hendricks deserves this rematch.”

    More proof Dana’s a PoS.. Bones took way more damage in that fight (he needed help walking out of the cage) than GSP.. he’s contradicting himself again.

  2. 757 says:

    Good call ^^ I totally agree with you sasquatch

  3. Nate "THE ROID CHEAT" Marquardt says:

    GSP took massive damage and EVERYONE knows he lost whether they are willing to admit it or not

    GSP took a world class as’s’s whoopin and gav e nothing back. Perfect scenario for the old saying “you should see the other guy”

    All you idiot GSP nutjobs just feel sorry for him is all because he got hurt real bad

    First of all asshole….You are a nut job because you don’t know how to read fuck up. Sasquatch was stating that Bones took more damage than GSP in his fight and he did. He couldn’t even walk and went right to the hospital ….asshole. I said that I thought GSP lost. DW is a pos. Diaz took more damage than Condit in their fight and it didn’t mean anything, and George looked worse in the Diaz fight and clearly won so what’s your point. Shut the fuck up and learn how to read before you blast on people. Simple mother fucker

    LMAO look at you GSP fan girls… Defending him like he’s your Lil brother or something… All butt hurt cuz you know he lost.. Lol.. you fan girls don’t want GSP to fight Johnny again because you know in your heart that he will wreck GSP… again… And FYI the bones vs Gus was Wayyyy closer.. You could tell bones and Gus were in a fight.. Not like after GSP vs Hendricks fight were GSp looked like he got beat with a bat and Johnny looked like he just got back from a light jog…
