Johnny Hendricks moving up to co-main event to fight Carlos Condit

I'm assuming Ellenberger gets Woodley now.

I got Condit on this.

Thank the lord this is happening, if Condit wins, Finally no more Hendricks shit talking. Hoping we get GSP/Maia now! Maia Probably needs one more win, but still, I'd love to see that fight.

Canadian contender Rory MacDonald (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) has suffered a neck injury in training and has been forced to withdraw from a planned UFC 158 matchup with Carlos Condit (28-6, 5-2). However, the "Natural Born Killer" will still face a fellow top-ranked opponent as Johny Hendricks (14-1, 9-1) has agreed to fill the open slot.

USA TODAY Sports learned of the shuffle while speaking with UFC President Dana White late Monday evening.

"Once we knew Rory had to withdraw, we started looking for potential replacements," White said. "Johny Hendricks called me and said he wanted that fight, so we're going to give it to him a shot at Carlos."

Condit and MacDonald were scheduled for the co-main event of "UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz," which takes place March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre. The winner was expected to hold an envious position in the company's ultra-competitive 170-pound division and potentially earn a shot at the welterweight title. That might have left Hendricks, who recently dispatched of perennial contender Martin Kampmann in just 46 seconds, again waiting his turn.

Hendricks was already on the fight card at UFC 158, where he was expected to face Jake Ellenberger (28-6, 7-2). But by moving into the matchup with Condit, a onetime title challenger, "Bigg Rigg" now likely boosts his chances for earning a title shot of his own with a victory.

Ellenberger is still expected to compete at the event against an opponent to be determined.

White also revealed his first selection to fill MacDonald's position was incoming Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine (14-3, 0-0). However, the UFC boss said the Belgian fighter turned down the opportunity, allowing Hendricks to step in against Condit.

UFC 158 features a welterweight title bout between current champion Georges St-Pierre and former Strikeforce title holder Nick Diaz. The evening's main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

No title shot for Hendricks.

Condit by KO.

Well Mr. Hendricks, you wanted the top of the division, now you get it. Condit finishes JH and bumps him back down the line. Still bummed about Rory and Condit not happening but to see JH shut up will certainly be a good consolation prize.

I hope Hendricks doesn't try and exchange left hooks with Carlos. Ask Dan Hardy how that goes down.

I don't understand why Hendricks would want this fight. It's on the same card and he was going to get a title shot anyway if he beat Ellenberger so what's the point? I personally would rather stick to training for the guy I've been training for weeks for.

Probably Gets a bigger PPV Cut as Co-Main. But yeah, Stupid considering Condit's going to floor him.

Condit is a bigger name than Ellenberger. That means something to some fighters.

I can't wait to hear Hendricks sob after Condit outclasses him.
