This kind of behavior shows lack of confidence imo. If you're confident, you'll go out there and hurt ppl until you get the shot. If not, you'll start bashing the champ saying he's a coward because you might not get the shot anymore.

Because of situations like this, you're going to see more and more people talking their way into fights they don't deserve, going forward. Because it works.

Hey, if badmouthing seems to be the only way to get a title shot these days, why are you guys being so intolerant towards Hendricks?

He can say whatever he wants IMO. The UFC is the one in the wrong here. Funny that he's the one getting bashed for it though.

He's getting bashed because he's coming off like an absolute toddler. Everyone has acknowledged that it's a raw deal, but so what? As I said, JDS and Carlos Condit were shafted far worse, and everything worked out in the end. He's literally threatening to call it a career (he said he feels like calling it quits) because he might have to wait a few extra months for his title shot. He's being a massive baby. Life doesn't always go according to plan. We've all earned things, only to have them taken away or be told we have to wait a little bit longer. Welcome to the rat race.

And for him to say he doesn't blame the UFC is rubbish. GSP may have asked for the fight, but at the end of the day, Dana said yes. If Dana didn't approve of or want this fight, it wouldn't be happening. You expect me to believe that if GSP had told Dana he wanted to face Chris Cope, Dana would have agreed to it? The UFC calls the shots and if Johnny has a gripe, he can take it up with the organization.

Again, he has every right to be annoyed. But move on. This is delaying his title aspirations by all of a few months, and he's threatening to retire. Thank God Junior wasn't that mentally weak.

Well said.

I agree 100% with this.

If Jonny isnt careful his bitching could get him into a Jon Fitch kinda situation where Dana wont like him and he'll have to string a LOT of wins together to get his shot.

I would rep the crap out of you if the app had that function. I completely agree.

I don't agree at all.
Hendricks has a much stronger case in claiming for a title shot then both Condit or JDS had. He has beaten more and higher ranked adversaries in the way to the title shot than both Condit and JDS did.
In fact the only top 5 JDS beat before fighting Cain was Carwin who was a replacement for Lesnar (and don't say i'm a hater, i love JDS).
Condit beat Hardy, Dong and Nick Diaz, arguable only Diaz is a top 5.
That means that both JDS and Condit only bested 1 top 5er before fighting for the title while Hendricks has already beat 3 (kos, Fitch and Kanpman).
So yeah, he's being f*cked hard by the UFC, more than both your examples so i say that he's in his right to cry a bit about it.

Nobody is saying Hendricks doesnt deserve the shot, in fact the complet opposite, most people say he does.

What people are saying is that Jonny is bitching and moaning and that is what is pissing a lot of people off.

I know that. I was just saying that JDS and Condit are bad comparisons because of the reasons i've presented in my previous post.
