Undefeated welterweight prospect Johny Hendricks (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is set to return to the octagon in December against UFC newcomer Ricardo Funch (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
A former two-time Division I collegiate wrestling champion, Hendricks made his UFC debut in August. The 25-year-old took out Amir Sadollah in just 29 seconds in the UFC 101 contest, Hendricks' fourth TKO win in six career contests.
Prior to his UFC debut, Hendricks went 2-0 during a brief run with the WEC. The Oklahoman's well-liked recent appearances on MMAjunkie.com Radio and passion for fast food have earned him the nickname "Baconator" from hardcore MMAjunkie.com followers.
