He forgets it...
Johny Hendricks recently spoke with MMAjunkie in a new interview. Check out the highlights:
On his beard: "I try to keep clean-shaved because it's so hot. Having facial hair is not fun during the summer. (But) realistically, if I go clean-shaven, nobody will recognize me. I look like I'm 18. I keep somewhat of a beard there. People can be like, ‘Is that him? Is that not him?' I want to make sure that the fans want to approach me how I am. We're nothing without them, so I want to make sure they can always approach me and get a conversation or get a picture. I want to make sure the fans know I'm there for them."
On keeping track of the belt: "Two weeks (after I won the belt), the UFC told me, ‘You've got to go somewhere, and we want the belt.' I'm like, ‘alright.' And there are times I'll be driving somewhere, and I'll be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I forgot the belt.' It's out of sight, out of mind. I do have it where I never think about it, because I want more of them, but I have it where I can easily access it."
