    Can't agree. The issue wasn't judging in the GSP fight, the issue was Hendricks. Johnny came out in round five full of himself, thinking he was cruising to a victory. He took his foot of the gas and lost that round. To this day if his ego and he hadn't got ahead of himself, he'd be Champion. Sorry but that is NOT Championship mentality. As they say " never leave it in the hands of the judges " , giving the last round away was just STUPID!!!

    Saying that, Johnny certainly did much more damage in the rounds he won than GSP did. When your in a fight there is a different perspective and the rounds get rolled into one. Thinking he won the overall fight at that point may have been justified . However we've all seen it in the cage more than a few times where fighters think they're up, take the foot off their gas and almost fight defensive and go on to lose the fight. A Champion doesn't do that.

    Instead of learning from his mistake , to this day all Hendricks goes on about is how he was robbed . Again Champions move on ,learn from their mistakes. Instead Hendricks blamed everyone but himself. That mentality ,going public, blaming judges after the GSP bout certainly didn't do any favours with judges after that.... Think Lawler

    The other part of Hendricks demise was leaving the team that got him to the top. Johnny's excuse was they wanted too big percentage of his pay. Another item that shows Bigg Rigg is not a man of honour. Johnny was signed right from college with no real mma experience. The deal was thirty percent of what you make now and when and if he makes it big. Thing is he had it better than most fighters, training was his only job with top coaches, full trainers, Dr's, nutritionists, the works. Was paid an income to support a family and buy a house from the start. That was a lot of years Team Takedown was out of pocket in the hopes their prospect became a Champion. Two fights after he finally gets his first title shot his contract is due to be redone and he leaves.

    This leads to another part of his downfall, Johnny's ego. After leaving Team Takedown Johnny decides he can become his own head coach with his own team, make it to another championship on his own. Without guidance and by doing it how he wants. A fighter being his own coach NEVER works!! All your going to have is yes men as assistants, a fighter isn't going to see their own holes in their game and don't have the experience on their own to improve and get better. Look at Tito, Koschek, and BJ all went on their own and all fell very fast. A coach makes you go the extra mile and push when you're uncomfortable. Look how may weight issues alone that Hendricks had once he went solo. Then look at his record.

    USADA, no one can deny JH's decline after USADA. This alone was an issue, some fighters made the transition and had success but is was extremely hard work to get to any form of top condition without a "bit o help" once a fighters been using. By this time Hendricks was done.

    All these things added together are on Johnny. Not the judges ,not the fans and not the coaches. Hendricks could have been one of the best. He is a tale of his own destruction. Blaming others ,not putting in the work and never accepting responsibility for his own failings was made the wheels fall off the Bigg Rigg

    I'm here to tell you guys that if he thinks he's gonna come to RFA and dominate, he's in for a rude reflux awakening. We know how to welcome new guys.

    If he could make the 265 limit there might be an alternative spot in the HW tourney.
