Johny Hendricks cemented his place as the number one contender for St-Pierre’s title with a thrilling 3 round war against Carlos Condit last night. ‘Big Rig’ was awarded the decision after 3 rounds of back and forth action.
The fight was close, but ultimately the judges gave Hendricks the nod unanimously. Surely Hendricks is the only man on the planet who has earned the next shot against St-Pierre. My personal thoughts are that GSP should have taken on Hendricks at UFC 158, but I suppose we got to see a great fight between ‘Big Rig’ and ‘NBK’, and Hendricks should be awarded the next shot now.
