Johny Hendricks had a terrible weight cut Thursday night,and was rushed to the hospital as a result. Word is he failed to properly prepare and shed the fat, thus showing up 20 pounds over and then tried to sweat it off. It didn't work and he was promptly disqualified for Saturday night's spectacle.
Dana White (who you can't believe a thing that comes out of his mouth) stated he believes Johny will have to fight at middle weight from now on. It really is a shame. Hendricks hardly takes his career serious, just shows up fat and out of shape, and yet still has managed to win a world title and run Georges St. Pierre out of MMA after the beating he put on him. One scratches their head and wonders how good he might be if he actually focused on a clean diet and made a commitment to cage fighting.
The current champion is a wrestler (Robbie Lawler) and the next title shot has been said goes to Tyrone Woodley, (another wrestler).
It will be interesting to see where Hendricks goes from here. Can he get his eating under control, or is he done with fighting at 170?
