There’s no doubt in the mind of Steven Wright that his client Johny Hendricks has what it takes to defeat Georges St-Pierre. Some have questioned if Hendricks is a suitable challenge for the champion.
“Johny’s trying to win every second of every round,” said Wright on Sherdog Radio. “He’s going to push. He’s going to give the best performance of his life that day, and we’re excited for the fight.”
Hendricks defeated former interim champion Carlos Condit to finally get his title shot. He had been promised one in the past, but it never happened.
St-Pierre has beaten Condit and Nick Diaz since returning from an ACL injury that saw him out for 18 months.
The two don’t have a date for their fight, though Hendricks is interested in August.
