Hendricks Says Middleweight Division May Be In His Future

“I’d love to fight at 185. Not having to cut down to 170? Are you kidding me? I walk around at 215, 220. That’s an average cut for a 185-pounder. That’s probably what the 185ers are walking around at. So the only thing that hurts me is that I’m 5-foot-9. I still thought about it,...

Lombard: ‘Jake Shields Is A Boring Fighter’

Shields Willing To Stand With Lombard But Wants A Ground Fight

“It’s definitely a no-brainer that I want to take it to the ground. I feel like I can stand with him. I think technically, I do a lot better in the stand-up than a lot of these fighters. As far as fighting Lombard on the feet, it’s not something you want to do. He’s just...

GSP: ‘TRT Is A Joke, Should Have Been Banned Long Ago’
