Johny Hendricks Talks About The Crowded Welterweight Title Picture
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.17.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Johny Hendricks (16-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC) talked about his upcoming return to action after tearing his bicep and the current title picture in the welterweight division. He injured the arm while training for his fight with Robbie Lawler and tore it completely during the fight when he won the vacant welterweight title. Here are highlights:

On the urge to train more than he should: "They scared me into being a good patient. It's tough for me. Growing up wrestling, you get injured and they expect you back on the mat in a couple weeks unless it's really bad. What I found out is that if I jump the gun, instead of being six weeks in a sling and six weeks recovering, it might turn into 12 weeks in a sling and 12 weeks recovering."

On Rory MacDonald: "He's one of those fighters that he can do that to people. I'm not going to talk trash on anybody, but he makes guys feel awkward, But when someone is doing that, hey, you've got to know that sometimes you have to eat a punch to deliver a punch. Sometimes you've got to say to yourself, I am paid to be an entertainer.' In my fights it's not if I get hit; it's when I get hit."

On Brown vs Lawler: "If Matt Brown wins, that's awesome because it'd be nice to train for someone new. But if Robbie Lawler wins, I've trained for him before and I can do it again and make some corrections. I could also go into it injury-free this time. That'd be nice."
