Hendricks Hitting Weights To Bulk Up For GSP Fight

“I’m just going to work on things that I could have done better. I’m actually going to lift during this camp, during this off-season. Last off-season I didn’t, so I’m actually going to start lifting again, trying to get up a little more power for this next fight.”

UFC welterweight number one contender, Johny Hendricks, tells Knockout Radio that he is lifting more these days to add power in his upcoming title fight against GSP.

    Maybe he should just ask GSP for some of his ILLEGAL HGH, EPO’s, testosterone, Victor conte’s undetectable designer steroids or any other PED that is only available to the SUPER WEALTHY. GSP is as dirty as they come and I aint talking about GREASE-GATE. You think for one minute that letting GSP come in overweight is the only favors athletic commissions are doing for GSP up there in Canuck land. Even though none the PED’s GSP is on are even tested for GSP hasn’t been tested in probably what 4 years or since last time he fought in the U.S. GSP is the Lance Armstrong of MMA where money-fame -power has covered up year of non-stop cheating across the board

      Thinking of this, i was just watching a video on PEDS, Steroids, GH, and etc.. And the person was saying there is things Piss tests cant even detect and will only be detected by blood tests.. Also there is alot of GH that can be gone within a day so its impossible to detect.. And for the athletic commission to allow 6:1, its even that much harder to detect.. Olympic style at random will be the only way to detect some of these new drugs out! But UFC wont have that cause they really dont want to clean up the sport..

      Now on to Hendricks.. More muscle? He is already a big WW, more muscle could actually hurt em.. I think he is a good size, makes weight right on point, and has strength, power and some speed.. Not sure about adding weight.. Frank Mir tried that and didnt work out like he thought it was going too..

      What’s with your personal vendetta against GSP??.. Your comments are getting somewhat obsessive and predictable to the point of me just bypassing them when I see your name… and I bet I’m not the only one.

  2. GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

    No doubt in my mind GSP will back out of Hendricks and instead he will be fighting ROIDY McDonald. Just wait and see

  3. Not You says:

    GSP likes to get a sweat going to open his pores and then lays in a bath of water and oil. Good luck controlling him in your guard.

  4. Sasquatch says:

    I don’t think that’s a very good idea, more muscle requires oxygen to feed them. Johnny clearly doesn’t have the best cardio judging by his last fight.. had that been a 5 round fight Condit would have more then likely finished him. IMO Johnny’s only hope is to catch Georges early with one of his bombs or he’s in for a long and sh!tty night.

  6. GRT 3000 says:

    he’s going to have to catch George with that killer bomb of his…if he doesn’t it’s game over. He won’t be able to fake a hand injury then bitch out & point wrestle like he did with Condit. George is too well rounded and has the power to stuff that sort of ultra gayness.

  7. 757 says:

    Hendricks has to win in 2 rounds (which he won’t). He will gas and get worn out. For the record like him or hate him GSP NEVER EVER tested positive for anything. Get a new excuse. Seriously there is no basis for the PED comments.

    • GOT RID OF FITCH (finally) Thank God says:

      You the man drew you hit the nail on the head. All GSP’s PED’s won’t save him from Big Riggs big left hand. yes GSP will run away and avoid Hendricks as much as possible but Big Rigg will chase him down. Everyone of Hendricks fights are exciting any bets GSP makes it as boring as ( A L L ) his usual SNOOZEFESTS. UFC needs a REALFIGHTER like Johny Hendricks as champ. GSP has bored all fans to death for far too long not to mention his 20 some month vacations and even before that eh only fights maybe once a year. Now GSP is picking and choosing his fights time for him to go.

    • Sasquatch says:

      And then you woke up and realized it was just a dream…

  9. Dee says:

    Mark my words. If he thinks hitting weights will prepare him for GSP, he is sadly mistaken. He’s going to put himself at a disadvantage.

  10. Ddddddd says:

    I wonder how much of this is just a reminder to Goerges that Johnnys got nukes. Goerges better bring the missile defense system because Johnny bringing that belt home. It was interesting hearing Goerges’ take on the Sylva and Weidman fight. It sounded like it was subconsciously his fear for himself realizing a bad match is a bad match.

  11. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    Go USA!! All the Way!! As much as I like and respect GSP, I’m for Hendricks. I think mentally, Hendricks has what it takes to beat GSP. But GSP is the elite. Not only is he the best mma wrestler, he is the strongest and fastest at ww. Not too many people can beat him. Hendricks is kind of a young better Hendo with a left. I see Hendricks looking for the KO early. GSP will jab, jab, jab and kick, jab to stay on the outside and score points. One thing Hendricks has that GSP hasn’t faced before is someone that can close the distance FAST. GSP will circle to Hendricks right while jabbing to stay away. Hendricks has smart trainers, they will train to have Hendricks angle to his right to cut off GSP’s movement making him go his right and boom the left will come out. My guess is GSP will look to do to Hendricks what he did to Fitch. I can see Hendricks winning and I will be rooting for that but at the end of the day, GSP by 80/20 will probably UD in 5.

    • Sasquatch says:

      Yup GSP will kick Johnny’s @ss.. or Canada will kick USA’s @ss if you want to bring nationality into the equation.. whatever you prefer.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        I ALWAYS bring patriotism to the game. I respect your patriotism to your guy GSP. I ALWAYS root for an American fighter if he is fighting a foreigner. But yah, GSP is not invincible, but I don’t see Hendricks beating him. But I will be rooting for him. Kick Canada’s ASS!! That’s what I prefer. Thanks!

        • Sasquatch says:

          Haha you bet!… nothing wrong with being patriotic. I am from Canada but don’t always root for Canadian fighters. For example, Kalib Starnes (the original running man), how could anyone root for him!

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Lol!!..Canada has great fighter’s and people for sure. Even Starnes, he just had a bad day then. I actually liked him for his tenacity. You know what I found out is you can always support them, even if it’s just to be a little better!! I can give some pretty ripping critiques of fighters, but at the end of the day every single one of them that does this is a badass and deserves respect as fighter’s even if they won’t be champions, even Starnes!! Hail Canadians. America Kick Ass!!
