Hendricks: I may have to beat GSP twice

Monday, June 03, 2013

Johnny Hendricks is the clear cut number one contender in the UFC’s welterweight division and will most likely be the next opponent for Georges St-Pierre barring any crazy super fight plans. However, Hendricks knows that not only will he have to defeat GSP to earn the title, he likely may have to beat him again to solidify this title:

“I’m gonna have to beat him twice. Unless I knock him out. If I manhandle him for two round and I knock him out, then there won’t be a rematch,” Hendricks explained. “But if it’s a close fight or I go out and knock him out in the first minute, yeah, there’ll be a rematch.”

That’s okay. He is so ready to face St-Pierre that the prospect of a twofer doesn’t detract from his excitement.

“I’m so excited to finally get to the Octagon and look across and there’s Georges. That’s all I can think about. That’s all I dream about every day. Words can’t explain how excited I am.”
