Following his big KO win last night...
Johny Hendricks will be the next guy to get a shot at the UFC welterweight title. Dana White revealed the news during the post-fight press conference last night, with Georges St-Pierre making his case for support of the idea.
"I need to see what's going to happen," GSP said of whether he would fight Hendricks or Anderson Silva next. "I need to talk to (Dana White), and we'll see what's going to happen – the best option. I just got hit. I need some vacation before I make a decision. But of course Johny Hendricks looked very aggressive tonight, and with this victory, he probably put himself in the No. 1 spot. We'll see what's going to happen."
White said of Hendricks' win, "He looked damn good tonight. It was a replica of the Jon Fitch fight. He even landed it in the same spot (as the Jon Fitch fight). It was impressive, so I would say yes, he is (the No. 1 contender)."
