There's a good reason...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Johny Hendricks (15-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) revealed that he doesn't take head shots while he trains. Instead, he wears bulky head gear for protection. He will fight Robbie Lawler (22-9 MMA, 7-3 UFC) tonight at UFC 171 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. It takes place on PPV.
He said: "I don't take head shots (in camp). The reason why is that you don't get paid in the gym; you get training in the gym. I want to save them for in the octagon, and I think that's what helps me a lot."
