NEW YORK – Even when he makes weight, Johny Hendricks knows how to bring some drama to a UFC weigh-in.
This time, though, he also brought some laughs.
Earlier today at UFC 217’s early and official weigh-ins, Hendricks (18-7 MMA, 13-7 UFC), who meets fellow middleweight Paulo Borrachinha (10-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) on Saturday’s UFC 217 pay-per-view main, hit the scale for the fight, which takes place at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
He was one of the first to weigh in, in fact (via Twitter):
Hendricks, the former UFC welterweight champion who’s missed weight three times during his current 1-4 skid, stripped naked and got behind a towel for the weigh-in, but he assured attendees – mostly reporters and photographers – that it was only because he misjudged the weight of his underwear.
But he also misjudged his misjudgment, as you can see in the video above.
