Johny HendricksJohny Hendricks has been rocketing towards a title shot against UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, dispatching of three of the top 170-pound fighters in the world in quick succession: Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck and Martin Kampmann.

It seems he’s being held out of that shot, not due to a super fight between GSP and Anderson Silva as some had anticipated, but due to St-Pierre’s desire to settle some “unfinished business” with Nick Diaz.

His five-fight winning streak over some of the best fighters in the world, it appears that UFC president Dana White is more than willing to grant GSP his wish to fight Diaz instead of Hendricks.

Hendricks says he’s “still in shock” over this recent turn of events and jumped on the horn with MMAWeekly.com’s Travis McPherson to express his dismay over the situation and having to buck his nice guy image to become a “smack talker” to try and keep his name in title contention.

Check out this exclusive interview with UFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks…
