Johny Hendricks: As soon as contracts are signed, I'm no longer champion

When Johny Hendricks won the UFC welterweight title back in March it was like a dream come true.  Hendricks lusted after the gold ever since he made his mixed martial arts debut and coming just short of capturing the title in November 2013 only made him want it that much more. It took five rounds and all 25 minutes for Hendricks to do enough to get the nod via judges' decision to...

Johny Hendricks weighs-in on fight day at 195 pounds

Is the Dolce Diet the new TRT? I grew up around wrestlers spitting into cups and smoking cigarettes so they didn’t eat (truth) just so they could make weight. That was obviously the wrong way to make weight, and we’ve seen after years and years of crazy weight cuts on TUF the lengths these fighters will go in order to make the fight ‘fair’ and weigh in the same amount at...
