Johny Hendricks is making no plans to change up his attacking style of fighting.
“I’ll tell you my gameplan. I’m gonna hit you with my left. If that doesn’t work I’m going to try to take you down. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to find a way to win, Georges. Easy as that. I wrestled, and all I had was a single-leg. But, I had different ways of setting it up. One thing that he cannot prepare for is my heart, my speed, and my determination to win. He says to everybody, ‘You’ve not faced anybody like me’. Well guess what? He’s never faced a 208-pound, 170 welterweight that has power and a true wrestler.”
Hendricks has topped Martin Kampmann and Carlos Condit to secure his status as No. 1 contender, though, he was passed over earlier this year by Nick Diaz.
“Bigg Rigg” just might have the skill-set to compete with GSP, who is widely considered one of the best wrestlers in all of MMA – regardless of divisions.
