10 Wrestlers Who Became Knockout Artists In MMA

Johny Hendricks

For a couple of short years, it seemed Johny “Big Rig” Hendricks was the future of the welterweight division.

Hendricks was a four-time All-American for Oklahoma State University (OSU) and finished with a collegiate record of 159–13. He would jump headfirst into the world of mixed martial arts and light the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) on fire.

Hendricks’ punches have dropped some of the welterweight division’s best. He rode his wrestling chops and stand-up skill all the way to the 170-pound title.

Now retired from MMA, Hendricks will be competing in the inaugural World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation (WBKFF) event on November 9, 2018.
