Johny Hendricks has message for GSP “If you can’t handle being champion, give it up”



UFC welterweight number one contender Johny Hendricks, who fought to a controversial loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 this past month, sounded off on AXS Television’s Inside MMA on Friday night about GSP’s hiatus from the Octagon.

Hendricks discussed the topic with host Kenny Rice and had this to say about St-Pierre:

“Dude I’ve got three kids. You know what I’m saying? Talk about sleep? Are you kidding me? Everybody’s got problems in life. That’s the way it is. If you can’t handle being champion, give it up. We chose to get into that octagon, we chose not to sleep. I don’t know how many times I’ve went to bed at five, six o’clock in the morning and woke up at 10, running four miles because I wanted to beat GSP that bad. Dude, who cares. I chose this life. Tell yourself whatever you need to. Just get back in that octagon with me. I can’t wait for the rematch.”

All that’s left is to see if the UFC brass can make the highly anticipated rematch happen with St-Pierre’s blessing.
