White: GSP vs. Hendricks maybe in August
Although much has been talked about as to what’s nexts for Georges St-Pierre, UFC President Dana White seems to be leaning towards a welterweight title defense. St-Pierre said ealier in the week he wasn’t sure, but today White was adamant it will probabably be Hendricks
White, of course, recently has championed for a Silva vs. St-Pierre bout.
Of course, there’s also top welterweight contender Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC), who’s been chomping at the bit for his long-awaited title shot. When asked what would happen if St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) brushes off the Silva matchup and isn’t into the Hendricks airing, White suggested he should be.
“He’s going to have to get his head into it,” White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “That’s who he’s going to fight.
“If he doesn’t want to do a superfight, nobody’s going to pressure him to do a superfight. That’s up to him. But Johny Hendricks is next – and soon. He’s next and soon. Soon, soon. Maybe in August.”
