Rest in peace Johny Hendricks professional steakhouse owner, but hello Johny Hendricks as a lean welterweight pro fighter. Even when Hendricks was ruling over the UFC’s 170 pound division with a buttery fist, the former OK State wrestler struggled to make weight with ease. A UFC champion and high level amateur wrestler, who couldn’t make weight with a snap of his fingers was just odd.
Everything comes easy to Hendricks but why was sweating down to 170 pounds an uphill battle?
Prior to his main event welterweight clash with Stephen Thompson all signs point to Big Rigg finally making a clean, no hassles weight cut at UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson (RIP UFC 196) this weekend. Will a new Bigger Rigg emerge this weekend and dominate the UFC’s welterweight division in 2016? Grab some medium rare red meat and find out this weekend at UFC 196-2.0/ UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson/ UFC Fight Night 82.
