Hendricks: GSP is scared of me

by Brian Hemminger |

Brian Hemminger (MMAmania.com): Now I don't know if you paid attention to the UFC 158 press conference, but when someone asked Georges St. Pierre why he decided to fight Nick Diaz over you, he said he felt Diaz was the real number one contender because he felt you lost to Josh Koscheck. What is your response to that?

Johny Hendricks: My reaction was like, 'Really?! You're an idiot.' He said that Condit really did beat Nick Diaz, know what I'm saying? He said, 'I'm fighting the true number one contender Carlos Condit,' and now, he's going backtracking and saying, 'Well, I think [Hendricks] lost.' Who cares? You don't get to decide. He's not a judge. He's not a judge. He's a fighter. He's paid to fight and he's paid to fight me. The fact that he was able to ask and get this request [to fight Diaz], the only thing this is, is it gives me more drive. It's not like I didn't have enough but what's gonna happen is, whenever I look across the cage, he's not going to see fear. He's not gonna see anything. All I want to do is I want to fight him. I want to look across and see GSP and that might be something he's not used to. I don't know. I don't know why he didn't take the fight but I guess I wouldn't want to fight me as well.

Brian Hemminger (MMAmania.com): Some fans think GSP is ducking you by taking the fight against Diaz instead, which is believed to be an easier fight. Would you go as far as to say that?

Johny Hendricks: I've been saying even more that he might be scared. I do not know why he didn't take the fight. All I know is he just proved what I thought. I am the number one contender. GSP should be fighting me and no one else. Why he didn't, only he knows and his camp knows. I'm a strong wrestler and I haven't had to prove it. I fought Josh Koscheck and the only time I got taken down was when I threw a knee. It was a mental mistake on my part and Josh Koscheck capitalized on it.

This... There was already the history and people was saying that GSP was scared of Diaz. I would rather see this happen now than later. Either one of them start a losing streak and we never get to see GSP vs Diaz which was the most talked about fight just over a year ago or they get to fight but it won't have much meaning to it if it happens much later. People would say that they are not the same fighter they were years ago and it would have been a different fight if it would have happened much sooner.So, it is just right that GSP vs Diaz is happening now!!!

GSP vs Hendricks .... The guy won't catch GSP with a KO and much like Kos, he won't out wrestle him either.

Agreed and in all fairness, it appears to be Underground Blog/ Chris doing his thing again.  Below is what was said. "I've been saying even more that he might be scared."

GSP is not scared of Hendricks and will likely win the fight. It's just business. Hendricks has one punch knockout power. GSP is just picking up a big payday before subjecting himself to the risk of getting caught by Hendricks. It's risk management. Does that make it right? No, not really.

I agree man. These guys fight...they're not scared. But they all probably know deep down who they're not going to have a great chance against. Personally. .I want to see Silva vs GSP and vs jbj. But I dont think it'll happen.
