Johny Hendricks Reveals How He Got The Nickname ‘Bigg Rigg’

Johny Hendricks is riding high off his fight of the night decision win over Carlos Condit, and is now set to face defending welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. The 15-1 knockout artist picked up the nickname Bigg-Rigg along the way in his fighting career, and in the video below he talks all about how he got the name and how he almost became ‘happy beard guy.’

The good news is Hendricks didn’t hurt his hand like he thought he did in the bout against Condit, and he is now waiting to get word as to when the UFC will set up his bout against GSP. It might be a while as St-Pierre has recently signed on to play a role in the upcoming moving Captain America.
