| by

Johny Hendricks pushed himself to the front of the line in the UFC's welterweight division with his win over Josh Koscheck Saturday night. Hendricks-Koscheck served as the co-main event to UFC on Fox: Diaz vs. Miller.

During a post-fight interview with FUEL TV, Hendricks revealed that he was battling illness in the weeks and days prior to the bout. Hendricks earned a decision victory.

"I had a tough training camp, the last two weeks I was battling some mean stuff. I had bronchitis and then mono," Hendricks said. "Two great ones to have. No (Hendricks didn't consider pulling out of the fight). I was sitting there, coughing up junk."

Hendricks became just the second fighter to defeat both Koscheck and Jon Fitch, joining UFC welterweight champion - and possible future opponent - Georges St-Pierre.
