Johny Hendricks Wants GSP Rematch, Doesn’t Think GSP Can Beat Him Again
UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks spoke with MMAJunkie Radio about former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. Specifically, Hendricks talked about why he wants a rematch with GSP, and how even though GSP has put on more weight, it doesn’t mean anything.
“He’s been saying that he’s walking around at 201 (pounds). Huh, cool. Whatever.”
“Just because you put on an extra pounds doesn’t mean it’s muscle, and just because you put on an extra two or three pounds of muscle doesn’t mean you’re going to be strong as me,” he said.
“He didn’t feel that strong,” Hendricks added about their UFC 167 fight. “And so that’s just one of those things where I’d like to face him again. Now, I’ve got the belt, and he has to beat me. And realistically, I don’t think he’s going to.
“The more that I’m training for these five-round fights, I’m getting better, and I’m still young at this. Most of the guys I’m fighting are 10, 12, 14 years they’ve been fighting. I’m only seven. I’m still developing my striking, trying to tune it up. Everything is starting to fall into place.”
