Who cares what former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre thinks? Not Johny Hendricks.
Hendricks, also a former champ and past opponent of GSP, recently talked to Submission Radio about Carlos Condit getting the next title shot and some interesting points to make.
GSP came out recently and said that Condit was his hardest fight and Hendricks, well, Hendricks just doesn’t see what all the hype is about.
“Here’s the thing, look at Frankie Edgar. He’s exciting and he hasn’t got a title shot in how long? You know what I’m saying? It’s just one of those things. Here’s what I’ve learned: Do not try to think too much. Do not try to think too much. Do your job. And my job is to fight…. We’ve seen [Carlos Condit] — they keep saying that, “Oh he does exciting fights.’ But, realistically, his title shots, they haven’t been as exciting. You know, Nick Diaz. Five round fight. Then Georges St. Pierre … besides the head kick. The way he fights whenever he fights these guys that he knows that he has to worry about power.”
And what about GSP and his knowledgeable insight into Condit’s abilities?
“Ah, who cares? (laughs) You know what I mean? Who cares? Yeah the reason why he’s saying that is ’cause the last time [against Condit] I got tired in the third round, right? But, here’s the thing, it’s a three round fight. Everybody’s like, ‘Oh if you would have went five rounds, Condit would have beat him.” Well no, because if I was training for a five-round fight — which I think I’ve proven that I can go five rounds — I can do those things and that’s important. So realistically, who cares?”
So, I don’t think Hendricks cares, is that what he’s saying?
