Georges St-Pierre To Johny Hendricks: ‘I’m Not Ducking Him’

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre would fight Johny Hendricks if that was what the UFC made him do.

However, GSP asked for – and received – Nick Diaz first, and the two will meet in March.

That hasn’t stopped Hendricks from taunting St-Pierre and claiming that he is afraid to face him inside the Octagon. Hendricks will also be competing on the same card, as he takes on Jake Ellenberger.

“I’m not ducking him,” said GSP, during an appearance on Fuel TV recently. “I can’t split myself in half. A lot of people want to fight me.”

St-Pierre added that “everyone is calling me. They want the big fight and the pay-per-view. I’m going to take it one fight at a time.”

GSP and Diaz have twice been scheduled to meet, but have yet to exchange blows inside the cage. St-Pierre also stated that the Diaz fight is the one he can take “the fastest,” and that to meet Anderson Silva in a potential super-fight he would have to add weight.

“(Facing Diaz) is right there. I don’t have to gain weight,” St-Pierre said. “That’s a fight and I want the best challenge.”
