Former UFC Welterweight Champion Johny Hendricks was forced to withdraw from his UFC 192 fight, and a once promising fight card took a huge blow.
News broke Friday that Hendricks was pulled from his big co-main event fight with Tyron Woodley due to weight cutting issues. Hendricks has dealt with massive weight cuts for quite some time, as he gains a huge amount of weight prior to his fight camps.
Hendricks told reporters at UFC media day Thursday he was still at 183 pounds. Hendricks' manager Ted Ehrdardt told MMAFighting that he suffered a blockage in his intestine, as well as a kidney stone. He was taken to the emergency room and received a IV.
The fight was set to be a huge one, with the winner likely earning a UFC Welterweight Championship fight against the winner of January's Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald bout. With this fight being moved, it likely won't change plans, as there are still three months to reschedule.
