SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
For Johnny Hendricks, he has a bomb-like weapon for a fist, and with his wrestling credentials he is absolutely sure he can stop GSP's takedowns and plant him on the canvas with one big shot. The former NCAA national wrestling champion (165 lbs) has knocked out eight of fifteen opponents in his career, and it is safe to say his confidence is earned.
Whether he can land the punch is another story.
UFC 167's main card will begin at 9 p.m. (Central Time). The event is co-headlined by Rashad Evans facing off against Chael Sonnen. It also features Welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald facing dynamite striker Robbie Lawler, and former title contender Josh Koscheck facing young wrestler Tyron Woodley.
