Johny Hendricks Will Wait For Rubber Match With Lawler

“Because, realistically, look at my last couple of years. I fight in March, it’s either the 14th, 15th or the 16th. And I always fight in either late-November or early-December. So realistically it’s playing perfect for my timeline. So there’s things I can get better on. Yeah, my weight went well. There’s just some things, I’m making tweaks. And now that I know in my eyes that it’s going to be Robbie Lawler, we’re already training for that. That’s what sort of makes me happy is I’m going to train for him. Yeah, he’s got to take some time to recover. In my mind we’re going to fight in late-November or early-December, which is fine with me. That just gives me more time to get my weight under control and get my skills a little bit more prepared for the fight.”

Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks spoke with The MMA Hour and said he is willing to wait for Robbie Lawler to heal up from his scrap with Rory MacDonald, then wants a rubber match with the champ.

Who do you think would take the trilogy fight?
