Johny Hendricks Not Bitter About Being Passed Over Anymore

Johny Hendricks felt like after his November victory over Martin Kampmann, he would be the next welterweight to challenge Georges St-Pierre. Instead, he’ll face Carlos Condit in the co-main event of UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz on Saturday night.

Previously, “Bigg Rigg” had stated his thoughts on being passed over by the UFC welterweight champion for Nick Diaz. Thursday, though, during the pre-fight press conference, Hendricks discussed the issue a little differently.

“(Diaz) had to do what he had to do to get the fight,” Hendricks said. “If I overlook Carlos Condit, he’s going to beat my (expletive).”

UFC president Dana White stated that the winner of Condit-Hendricks would receive the next title shot, and that is enough to get the attention of the former NCAA wrestler.

“My whole focus is on Carlos Condit,” Hendricks stated. “If I get a win, I can start campaigning for something else. If I get a win over (Condit), that’s awesome.”
