UFC Welterweight Johny Hendricks comments in an interview with MMA Fighting.

In his last two bouts Hendricks defeated two of the divisions top welterweights knocking out Jon Fitch and defeating Josh Koscheck via a split decision.

It now appears that Hendricks will be facing Martin Kampmann at UFC 154 in the co-main event with Georges St. Pierre fighting interim champ Carlos Condit in the main event.

Here is what Hendricks had to say on the booking.

“It is what it is. I feel like I fought the best guys at 170 in our division and I’ve won, but it looks like I have to get through one more person, and that’s just the way it goes. You can either sit here and complain about it or you can sit there and do your best to win it.”

“Of course you’re disappointed. You get promised a title shot and then something happens and it doesn’t happen. But then again, that’s the nature of this business. There’s always good fights going on, you just have to win each one.”

“I’m training for a five-round fight because if one of them gets hurt, I got to take my opportunity when I can.”
