Johny Hendricks ‘Grateful’ For GSP’s Quick Decision On Title



“I was very stoked when I was told about the fight. It’s pretty amazing that Zuffa and Mr. White are giving me another shot at it. It’s very humbling, and I’m not going to let this one slip by. There are some things we could change on the last one, but we are going to do everything in our power to make sure they say my name at the end of this fight. And to know that it’s in Dallas, I’m super-stoked about that. It’s great to be able to fight in Dallas, but to be the main event for a fight card in Dallas is an honor in itself.

“I was very relieved it all moved quickly. I’m very thankful that GSP came back quickly because he could have taken two months to do this and come up with his decision. But he did it quickly, and now we can move forward. I’m very grateful for that.”

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, top UFC welterweight, Johny Hendricks discussed how happy he is with the current state of his division and his place in it.

Johny is set to face Robbie Lawler in the main event at UFC 171 for the vacant UFC welterweight title.
