Video: Ex-champ Johny Hendricks misses weight – this time at middleweight for UFC-OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY – A change in weight class has seemingly not done much to help Johny Hendricks’ weight-management issues.

The former UFC welterweight champion was recently forced out of the weight class, where he once held the UFC title, after repeatedly missing weight. He had a successful middleweight debut earlier this year, but today he came in over the 186-pound limit by two pounds for Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 112 clash with Tim Boetsch.

Hendricks (18-6 MMA, 13-6 UFC) told MMAjunkie ahead of UFC Fight Night 112, which takes place at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. (with the main card on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass), that his weight cut was going according to plan and that he was feeling right at home in the middleweight division for the bout with Boetsch (20-11 MMA, 11-10 UFC).

“Bigg Rigg” looked reinvigorated with a win over Hector Lombard at UFC Fight Night 105 in February, but he again ran into an issue ahead of the fight with Boetsch.

Hendricks has now either missed weight or been pulled from a fight due to weight-cutting issues four times in the UFC. He joins Anthony Johnson, Thiago Alves, John Lineker and Charles Oliveira as fighters who have missed weight in two separate divisions in the UFC.

Watch the complete video of Hendricks’ UFC Fight Night 112 weigh-in above.
