He wants to face him when he does...
Johny Hendricks recently spoke about Georges St-Pierre's hiatus from MMA and more. Check out the highlights:
On Georges St-Pierre's hiatus: "I hope we get him back. I hope I can get this belt and get a couple fights underneath me, and he comes back. That's what I'm shooting for."
On whether GSP would want to fight him if he does return: "Would you want to look like that after another fight? You can't take me down, you can't hurt me on the feet, and here's the thing – that was my first five-round fight. I'm getting better. I'm getting stronger now that I know how to run my camps. So yeah, I think a little bit has to do with that."
On St-Pierre's importance to his own legacy: "He's just a man. I've proved enough my last fight, and if he doesn't come back, I proved enough. If I continue to win and do everything that I'm able to, then it doesn't matter. Because by that time, hopefully they won't forget him, but in five years or 10 years, they'll forget who I was. There's going to be another guy just like me or just like him that dominates the sport. That's the way I'm looking at it. Hopefully, I can move it my way. He was an amazing champ; he's done amazing things for the sport. You can't ever take that away from him, so how do you move people to where they might be [saying] you might be that?"
