However, three days after the event, Hendricks revealed his hand is free of major injuries and he will be ready to challenge reigning 170-pound kingpin Georges St. Pierre for the title whenever the champion is ready to return to mixed martial arts (MMA) action (he prefers August).

Ariel Helwani provided the following update on Hendricks' health on Tuesday's (March 19, 2013) edition of "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV:

"Of course he had the big win on Saturday night, and after the win over Carlos Condit, he told us that he was afraid he may have broken his dangerous left hand. Well, that does not appear to be the case. I spoke to him today and he said he thinks what happened was he dislocated a couple of fingers early in the fight and then as the fight went on --of course it went the full 15-minutes-- it popped back into place. That's why he was feeling so much pain after the fight but right now he doesn't think he broke his hand and he's going to have an x-ray just to make sure everything's okay, but he's pretty confident there was no break. He's hoping that he'll get the title shot against GSP in August. He says he'll take it anywhere, anyplace, anytime. He's really still on cloud nine after getting the shot, he's in such a good mood right now."

I made a thread about Firas Zihabi's appearance on Sherdog's Cheap Seats Podcast on tuesday but it got erased before I could post.

Zihabi sounded 50/50 on either Hendricks or Anderson for GSP's next fight.

It really made me feel sorry for JHen. Dont be shocked to hear Georges is taking time off only to turn around and fight Ando later this year if he beats Wiedman.

the only saving grace for JHen is Firas said Georges wants Ando for his last fight before retirement. Firas also said theres a alot of people GSP wants to fight. I wonder who they are?

Give GSP a little break - if they fought in August that would be GSP's 3rd title defense in 9 months.

Before those title defences, he had so much time off due to his injury. He owes this to his fans and to the UFC.

I'm really excited for Hendricks, he's the only guy in the division that i believe can pull it off.

According to Hendricks' twitter he felt an xray was not necessary since the hand felt better on Tuesday. With a possible title shot on the line, a quick trip to the doc and an xray to confirm it was only a dislocation is the best option. I would hate to see a hairline fx pop up down the road and derail a shot at the title. Phone Post

If he knocks out GSP they're going to have to start calling Hendricks "Mantis Shrimp" for his new nickname.

Dude, it's 5 months from now! Don't act like they want him to fight again in 3 months.

Plus, even before the 18 months GSP had off for the injury he was one of the more inactive champions. Expecting him to fight 5 months from now is perfectly reasonable.

GSP is getting tagged a little more then usual as of late. Hendricks needs to bring the fight, show no respect.
