Dana White Tells Johny Hendricks He Will Get His Shot At UFC Welterweight Title

An outpouring of support flooded Johny Hendricks’ Twitter account after UFC president Dana White mentioned Nick Diaz as the next opponent for Georges St-Pierre.

Most felt Hendricks, fresh off a knockout victory over Martin Kampmann, would be the next opponent for GSP if “Rush” did not accept a super-fight with Anderson Silva.

However, White said that GSP asked for a fight with Diaz to settle a grudge. The two had a pair of fights cancelled in 2011.
