Hendricks Wants To Retire As Middleweight After Clearing Out 170

Johny Hendrick’s isn’t content with being a one-division fighter.

The large welterweight competitor recently told The Dallas News that he wants to test himself up a division as a middleweight before hanging them up.

“Yes, once I can get through my weight class, I would love to retire at 185,” Hendricks told them. “I definitely don’t want to go down a weight class.”

Most fighters are looking for the coveted two-division champ moniker, but only two men have been able to do it. Can Johny follow Couture and Penn’s lead and be successful in two divisions?

    The only coward is GSP who would not give Hendricks a rematch…

  2. Tadpole Triplett says:

    2 division champs usually need to be champ in 1 division before a second…

    • realfighterfan says:

      Too bad GSP was too much of a coward to ever fight at MW. GSP wouldn’t even go up 5 lbs to fight A Silva at 175lbs

  3. Sasquatch says:

    The f**kin bonehead shouldn’t count his eggs before they hatch.. might want to concentrate on winning the fight with Robbie first before talking like this.

  4. T.Daddy says:

    Man, Hendricks really made you GSP fans mad when he beat GSP down for 5rds… Lol. He is the champ everyone especially GSP knows it
