After a winning fight against Carlos Condit, Johny Hendricks complained that he felt something on his left hand and feared that it may be broken or terribly injured. During the post-fight press conference, Hendricks was sure of this injury but then after contemplating on his next career move, was certain that he has suffered no injury at all.
And what Hendricks wants is a shot against Georges St. Pierre this August. Interviews by UFC Tonight confirmed the fighter’s great condition. The interview mentions that although Hendricks was afraid that he totally damaged is “dangerous left hand”, this was actually half true. He indeed felt he dislocated a couple of fingers in the early minutes of the fight with Condit but as the fight moved on, the injured fingers popped back into their original positions. He felt excruciating pain when all these happened but he said that he had to do what he had to do: to finish the fight for a full 15-minute. The interview also mentioned that Hendricks is sure to undergo x-rays just to confirm that there are no broken bones after all.
What Hendricks is really into is preparing for a match against Georges St. Pierre who is fresh from a unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz in UFC 158 headline fight last March 16, 2018. St. Pierre is in pure perfect form as he also awaits his next match this year.
To note, George “Rush” St. Pierre is 31 years young from St. Isidore, Quebec, Canada. He has a fantastic MMA record of 24 wins and just 2 losses. His win over Diaz was his 11th consecutive win since 2007 when he won via unanimous decision over Josh Koscheck at UFC 74- Respect in April 2007. St. Pierre has been in the business for more than a decade and is also a product endorser for muscle-building and health products.
Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks on the other hand is 2 years younger than St. Pierre but has a 15 win and only one loss MMA professional career. His last win over Carlos Condit in March 16, 2013 was his 6th consecutive win. His only defeat came from Rick Story at Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale in December 2010 via unanimous decision. His fight against Sr. Pierre will be a totally spectacular event that everyone will look forward to.
