Few things in the recent history of MMA world champions have been quite as shocking as Johny Hendricks’ fall from grace. The former NCAA Division 1 wrestler out of Oklahoma State went from being a UFC champion with a record of 16-2 in his career to losing six of his last eight fights and being forced up a weight class after multiple misses.

 

On top of all this, Hendricks’ UFC contract has expired and he is currently a free agent. However, despite his uncertainty on whether or not he would be returning to the organization he was once a champion of, some signals are being given out that the UFC may still have interest reports Brett Okamoto:

 

"Ran into Johny Hendricks in Las Vegas today. He’s spending time at UFC PI, strength and conditioning and nutrition planning. Not even signed to UFC right now, but they invited him out. He’s considering 170 again. Believes he has plenty left."

 

With Hendricks’ recent record as of late, it would come as a fairly large surprise to see him re-sign with the UFC but one has to imagine that him still being invited to the performance institute is a good sign for him.

 

An even bigger surprise may be that he wants to potentially give 170 another go… Ever since moving up to middleweight he has spoken greatly about how much better it feels to not have to cut that weight(although he might have felt too good about it for his second to last fight against Tim Boetsch as he missed weight even at 185).

 

Who knows if we’ll see Hendricks back in the UFC for his next outing but as he told Luke Thomas last month, he’s pretty open to whatever right now:

 

"THAT’S THE THING, RIGHT NOW I DON’T KNOW WHERE. WHATEVER THE BEST WAY IS FOR ME. WE HAVE TALKED, IT JUST DEPENDS REALLY ON WHO’S MORE WILLING TO KEEP ME AROUND. AND THAT’S SORT OF WHERE MY HEADS AT. I KNOW I CAN STILL GET BETTER, I CAN STILL DO WHAT I WANT TO DO. WHENEVER MOST PEOPLE GET HICCUPS IN THEIR ROAD, THEY MOVE OFF AND VEER OFF TO SOMETHING ELSE. WHERE…BEING AN ATHLETE ALL MY LIFE, WHENEVER YOU RUN INTO HARD TIMES, LIKE FOR ME I CAN’T QUIT. I WANT TO PUT ON THE HEIGHT AND I CAN. I CAN. I JUST REALLY THINK THAT I HAVE A LOT MORE TO PROVE TO THIS WORLD THEN I HAVE.”

 

 

 

What do you think is next for the former UFC welterweight champion?


"All will be well."

He missed weight at MW ffs. He's lucky they didn't fire him then. 

 

He should retire.

He should just quit fighting nature, blow up like Roy Nelson, and head off to Bellator to have a trilogy with the original.

He's strong for ww division but the bigger mw guys can take his shots & can stuff his td attempts. He cant stop eating & he's been known to binge eat in secret too, what he really needs is for usada to go away so he can start winning again.

How many times have we heard that a fighter believes they "have plenty left", only to quickly learn that they, in fact, have nothing left?

 

Hendricks really struggled post-USADA, and there's little doubt that he was getting some help from supplements.

 

At the same time, what are his options other than fighting? He certainly doesn't know how to run a restaurant.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

What do you think is next for the former UFC welterweight champion?


I wish he applied all these wise words about not quitting to his **** diet.

He looks  to be about 220.That was the ONLY thing he had was size,his skills are very low.He could never walk into that ring at 170..impossible,he would be easily 200 come fight day.
