Johny Hendricks: I Will Finish GSP Next Time
Johny Hendricks, who came out with the short end of the stick in a controversial split decision loss to UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, is now past his loss, and is looking forward to his next fight.
As Hendricks told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour, “I’m over it, I’m looking forward to the future. It’s all I can do at this point… Just move forward… I know I’m going to get him again if he doesn’t retire,” Hendricks said. “Next time, I am going to make sure it doesn’t go to judges. There is a couple of things I am going to take into my hands, literally, and I’m going to do things differently to finish GSP. I had him rocked in the second round and I am going to finish it next time.”
St. Pierre has been the victim of many rumors after he decided to take time away from the sport, including a rumor that he impregnated a woman, and that his father was near-death. Whether these rumors are true or not, Hendricks doesn’t have any sympathy for St. Pierre.
“All he has on his plate, realistically, is being a fighter. Everybody goes through life problems, that’s what life is all about. It’s balancing them trying to get better, trying do this or trying to do that. There were nights that I got two hours of sleep, four hours of sleep,” Hendricks said. “But, like I said, it is what it is, who cares? I don’t know, that’s just the way I look at it. Everybody’s got a hitch, how are you going to overcome that hitch? How do you balance those problems in your life?”
