Johny Hendricks Could Be Passed Over, And He Is Not Happy About It

Johny Hendricks has one request for the UFC if they pair Georges St-Pierre with Anderson Silva next: vacate the UFC welterweight title.

UFC president Dana White sparked more talk of the potential super-fight recently, and “Bigg Rigg” is none too happy about it.

Hendricks has been viewed as the No. 1 contender since defeating Martin Kampmann last year, but was passed over for Nick Diaz.

“If he wants to go to 185 then by all means, go to 185 and fight Anderson Silva,” he said, during a recent interview with MMAjunkie.com Radio. “Yes, it would be a great thing for our sport. But I want the belt. I’d like to fight GSP for it, but if that doesn’t happen, I’m not going to hang my head and say, ‘Oh man, I’m going to be fighting that guy for the belt.'”

Hendricks stated that he hasn’t been putting any focus on a potential match up with GSP because a “bout agreement” hasn’t reached his desk yet.
