Some MMA fans werenâ€™t happy that UFC President Dana White couldnâ€™t put the superfight together between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre, but they quickly changed their tune when they found out GSP was instead asking for a crack at Nick Diaz. Of course, one person who didnâ€™t like the sound of GSP fighting Diaz was Johny Hendricks. The welterweight has won his last five fights including a finish of Jon Fitch with a sub-minute knockout.
Hendricks is now saying Diaz already had his chance to fight GSP and blew it so it’s his turn to land the opportunity.
Hendricks told Sherdog:
â€œHeâ€™s had two shots to get GSP. All Iâ€™m asking is for one. Thatâ€™s all that Iâ€™m asking for, and the thing is, the more that St. Pierreâ€™s camp is talking about these other people and not wanting to fight me, itâ€™s just giving me more and more confidence.â€
Hendricks said on getting the title fight:
â€œYou can only hope for it, and thereâ€™s only so much that I can do to get a title shot. I donâ€™t want to be one of those people that has to be a jerk or whatever to somebody to get it. If they bypass me, guess what? I can wait..If I have more time to wait, then guess what? Iâ€™m going to try to get that much better.â€
