UFC contender Johny Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) doesn’t mind to wait until fall or even winter for his fight with UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) and don’t care where the fight takes place. The “Bigg Rigg” is confident in his wrestling skills.
Hendricks earned his title shot after defeating Carlos Condit (28-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC) by unanimous decision at the recent UFC 158 on March 16 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Where GSP defended his crown against Nick Diaz (26-9 (1) MMA, 7-6 UFC) during the same event.
“If he wants to do that, more power to him. Now I have it. Now I know I have that fight. Nothing stands in my way between me and GSP. That was my main concern right there, to make sure I’m the No. 1 contender and no one can steal that spot. It doesn’t bother me to know that I’d like to fight in August, but if it’s September I’m fine with that too” said Hendricks to Knockout Radio.
The welterweight contender doesn’t care where the fight takes place: “Hey, I do not care, you know what I mean? I don’t care where it’s at. I just want a shot at that belt so bad I can almost taste it. Nothing else matters but getting that belt.”
About whos wrestling is better he said: “I wrestled Division I. I was a national champion, but here in the MMA world, people act like I don’t have wrestling. One thing I think I did showcase is that my wrestling is just as strong, if not stronger, that GSP’s.”
