Georges St-Pierre took another five round fight, when he defeated Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in March. With Johny Hendricks looming, the welterweight champion has already begun training for the bout.
“I’m already training,” said St-Pierre on Sports Net. “I train all the time. I trained two, three days after the [Diaz] fight. I was in the gym training.”
When they do meet, Hendricks will look to do what eight other individuals couldn’t accomplish, by beating St-Pierre for the belt.
Hendricks has been defeated once in his career and has finished four of his UFC wins in round one with help from his hands.
There is no timetable for their encounter, but the No. 1 contender has mentioned August has an ideal time.
