After UFC 158: St-Pierre Vs Diaz was in the books, UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks had finally earned the title shot he had clamoring for for months. There was one problem, at the post fight press conference Hendricks confirmed that he did feel something in his hand during his unanimous decision win over Carlos Condit, and he said it felt like his hand was broken. As it turns out, Hendricks doesn’t think his hand is broken at all, and he is saying he wants his shot at Georges St-Pierre’s welterweight crown in August.
“Of course he had the big win on Saturday night, and after the win over Carlos Condit, he told us that he was afraid he may have broken his dangerous left hand. Well, that does not appear to be the case. I spoke to him today and he said he thinks what happened was he dislocated a couple of fingers early in the fight and then as the fight went on –of course it went the full 15-minutes– it popped back into place. That’s why he was feeling so much pain after the fight but right now he doesn’t think he broke his hand and he’s going to have an x-ray just to make sure everything’s okay, but he’s pretty confident there was no break. He’s hoping that he’ll get the title shot against GSP in August. He says he’ll take it anywhere, anyplace, anytime. He’s really still on cloud nine after getting the shot, he’s in such a good mood right now.”
