Johny Hendricks Questions His Future Following UFC 200 Loss

Johny Hendricks is stuck.

The former UFC welterweight champion loves fighting and competing inside the Octagon.

However, after a third loss in his last four fights, coupled with issues weighing in once again, “Bigg Rigg” is questioning what’s next.

“I’ve got to take a step back and refocus,” Hendricks told the UFC’s Megan Olivi after his recent UFC 200 loss to Kelvin Gastelum. “It might be a month, two months, three months…hell, I don’t know.”

Hendricks (17-5) has fought 17 times for the UFC, going 12-5 including a decision win over Robbie Lawler that won him the belt. However, the former Oklahoma State University wrestling standout has lost to Lawler, Stephen Thompson and now Gastelum since around a win vs. Matt Brown.

“I love fighting,” he said. “To get in that Octagon makes me so happy, but to perform like (I did)…Do I still want to fight? Because (the Gastelum fight) right there shows me that I don’t.”
