Johny Hendricks to GSP: 'You're an idiot'

Johny Hendricks calls Georges St. Pierre an 'idiot' for thinking Nick Diaz deserves a title shot over him

By Brian Hemminger on Feb 7, 6:00p 46

Top UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks had some choice words for UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre after finding out that GSP doesn't believe he's the top contender due to a technicality. Check out "Big Rigg's" response below.

If there's any fighter in the UFC right now who has more than earned their shot at the belt, it's Johny Hendricks.

The former three time Division I national champion wrestler possesses a 14-1 overall record which includes a five fight winning streak over some seriously elite competition.

It all started with his thunderous 12 second knockout of the then number two ranked welterweight Jon Fitch. He followed up by earning a split decision over number five ranked Josh Koscheck and then proceeded to blast number three-ranked Martin Kampmann in just 46 seconds this past November in the co-main event of UFC 154.

After his victory over "The Hitman," Hendricks made it known in his post-fight speech that he felt he'd done enough to earn a shot at the title, even saying he'd sit out until he got his opportunity to fight Georges St. Pierre.

So naturally, when St. Pierre instead chose to fight Nick Diaz, "Big Rigg" was a bit perturbed. But what really set him off was his reasoning. "GSP" mentioned at the UFC 158 press conference that he felt Diaz deserved the shot over Hendricks because he believed Hendricks had lost to Koscheck, a man he'd already defeated.

That didn't make much sense considering he also believed Diaz had lost to Carlos Condit for the interim title, the man that "Rush" had just returned to defend his championship against.

Hendricks spoke his mind during an appearance on MMAmania's Verbal Submission podcast last night and he didn't hold back:

"My reaction was like, 'Really?! You're an idiot.' He said that Condit really did beat Nick Diaz, know what I'm saying? He said, 'I'm fighting the true number one contender Carlos Condit,' and now, he's going backtracking and saying, 'Well, I think [Hendricks] lost.' Who cares? You don't get to decide. He's not a judge. He's not a judge. He's a fighter. He's paid to fight and he's paid to fight me. The fact that he was able to ask and get this request [to fight Diaz], the only thing this is, is it gives me more drive. It's not like I didn't have enough but what's gonna happen is, whenever I look across the cage, he's not going to see fear. He's not gonna see anything. All I want to do is I want to fight him. I want to look across and see GSP and that might be something he's not used to. I don't know. I don't know why he didn't take the fight but I guess I wouldn't want to fight me as well."
Hendricks will instead be fighting the very heavy-hitting Jake Ellenberger on the UFC 158 main card next month (March 16, 2013) on the same night that St. Pierre defends his title against Diaz.

If Hendricks defeats "The Juggernaut," is there any way St. Pierre can deny him his shot this time?

We get it, Johny. You're angry, upset, and hurt. But do understand that plenty of fans also believe that you ought to have lost a decision to Josh Koscheck, you know what I'm saying? So let it go, keep training, and focus on Jake Ellenberger, you know what I'm saying? And if you win, then you can worry about GSP, you know what I'm saying? Just don't keep crying, pissing, and moaning after you get embarrassed and perhaps even beaten at your own game, you know what I'm saying? In fact, you should thank GSP for pushing back your title fight, because you get to enjoy the limelight for that much longer before being rendered obscure, you know what I'm saying? Do you... know what... I'm saying?

Everyone is in such a rush () to get to GSP and have their hype derailed. Hendricks should not be concerned about waiting or having to fight anyone else in the division. He will need to be better than all of them to beat GSP anyways.

Wow he seems pretty upset and I don't really blame him. But it is what it is.

GSP vs Diaz and Chael vs Jones basically proves that just being a great fighter on a winning streak isn't a guarantee of anything anymore. Guys like Chael and Diaz are getting shots based on things other than just their fighting skills.

It never has been, fighters with quality win streaks have been getting shafted for longer than I can remember. Bottom line is if uncle Dana loves you or thinks he can make a shitload of money off you, you'll get a fast track to the top (and some freebie fights to get you there) over more deserving guys. It's always been that way.

I really hope Hendricks Bispings the shit out of GSP when, if, the fight ever happens. No, I don't think Hendricks will win, GSP is too good at everything. GSP is just being a bitch because he knows Hendricks can knock him the **** out and Diaz can't. The more and more I think about GSP's stupid reasoning to not fighting Hendricks, the more and more I want to see him demolished with a diving punch while already unconscious.

I love GSP, but at this point I'm so tired of all the nonsense that I really want Hendricks to knock GSP out cold.

I really do hate the top guys at 170. GSP, Hendricks, Diaz and Rory.

Hopefully Maia and Woodley beat a few of them.
