Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks mentioned during the post-fight press conference that he needs to find a weight closer to 170 pounds to walk around at.
Hendricks, who admitted he was over 215 pounds before cutting down, defended famed nutritionist Mike Dolce on Twitter. In recent months, Dolce has come under fire for his work with several fighters.
@TheDolceDiet is amazing. The responsibility is all mine. I was 218lbs and waited too long to start eating properly.

Hendricks lost the title to Robbie Lawler via split decision. He was making his first defense.
