- On a recent episode of MMAjunkie Radio, Johny Hendricks, who will be fighting Robbie Lawler for the vacant UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 171 this Saturday, stated that he wants to see former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre back in the UFC.
"I hope we get him back. I hope I can get this belt and get a couple fights underneath me, and he comes back," said Hendricks. "That's what I'm shooting for."
St. Pierre officially vacated the title back in December and took a break from MMA following a controversial split decision victory over Hendricks at UFC 167 in November. While Hendricks hopes to get a rematch with GSP, he won't consider his legacy tarnished if he never gets the opportunity.
"He's just a man. I've proved enough my last fight, and if he doesn't come back, I proved enough. If I continue to win and do everything that I'm able to, then it doesn't matter. Because by that time, hopefully they won't forget him, but in five years or 10 years, they'll forget who I was."
- UFC has released the medical suspension info to MMA LLC for this past weekend's UFC Fight Night 37 event in London England.
