Johny Hendricks Suffered Minor Burn During Filming of UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks Promo


Johny HendricksUFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks encountered a near-miss situation last month while filming a commercial promoting his UFC 167 title fight with champion Georges St-Pierre.

Hendricks suffered a second-degree burn when the lights used during filming were either too hot or placed too close to him, according to manager Ted Ehrhardt, who confirmed the incident to MMAWeekly.com. The news was initially reported by MMAFighting.com.

Ehrhardt told MMAWeekly.com that the burn was roughly equivalent to a severe sunburn, and that his fighter’s trainer told him that Hendricks suffered some discomfort from the injury, but didn’t miss any training.

“I initially thought he missed a day or two, but his trainer told me he actually didn’t miss any training,” said Ehrhardt.

The burn healed in about a week and never jeopardized the fight.

St-Pierre vs. Hendricks headline UFC 167 on Nov. 16 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The card also serves as the promotion’s 20th Anniversary event.
