Jake Shields, a teammate of Nick Diaz under Cesar Gracie, took it upon himself to call out Johny Hendricks. UFC president Dana White stated on Thursday that Georges St-Pierre had asked for a match with Diaz, and would likely grant it, passing over what most though was a title shot for Hendricks.
Hendricks, who made it known that he wanted nothing more than the opportunity to face St-Pierre, is coming off a convincing victory over Martin Kampmann.
“(Hendricks) quit crying. Nick’s done more than you. It’s cool you beat my old punching bag at AKA but I think you need to fight me next,” Shields posted on Twitter.
Hendricks responded by writing, “lol dude pipe down man lol ur right just like you did have done in the UFC.”
Shields is coming off a victory over Ed Herman at middleweight, but the result was changed to a no-contest after he failed a post-fight drug test. The former Strikeforce champion was made it known he intends to return to welterweight, where he once lost to GSP.
Shields also posted, “(White, Lorenzo Fertitta) know what they’re doing. Be a company man and do your job. I’ll fight anyone.”
