Johny Hendricks is Ready for a Shot at the Belt


Johny Hendricks has picked up four straight victories, including wins over Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch. He believes that his resume makes him a deserving contender in the UFC's welterweight division.

Hendricks, however, is behind Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit, as the two are expected to meet later this year to unify the titles. That leaves Hendricks to face Martin Kampmann in November at UFC 154, the likely date for GSP-Condit.

"Like I said before, I want a shot at the belt," said Hendricks, during a recent interview with "I feel like I've done enough to get that title shot. Certain circumstances have held me up from getting that. I just cleared out the division for a lot of people to move forward."

Hendricks is a two-time NCAA Div. I wrestling champion who holds an MMA record of 13-1. His lone career loss came by decision to Rick Story in 2010.
