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.
@johnyhendricks I agree that u deserve it and u will get ur shot
