    Well, this is not at all surprising news. Sure he could go to Bellator and make some money there but Is Bellator even interested in a guy like him? I find everything about Johny so damn depressing. I think this might be it for him.

    EDIT

    WTF!

    OoO not sure he has the resume to make that leap.


    PFL seems more his size.

    Honestly, doubt Bellator even wants him. His been the mockery of whole MMA community for quite a while now. I'm calling re-opening of the Bigg Rigg Steakhouse where he will, once again, bankrupt himself by eating the stock inventory.

    If Bellator grabs him, it will be on the cheap. I'd like to see Hendricks vs Ward at MW

    Some good for opponents for Hendricks could be

    Bellator: Melvin Manhoef, Hisaki Kato, or A.J. Matthews
    PFL: Clinton Williams
    ONE: Agilan Thani
    RIZIN: some prospect/tomato can

    lol I remember hearing something like that. He's an idiot with an eating problem, he lacks discipline too.

    Yeah the guy still has some name value but really he should just retire . He become a shell of his former self and looks like lost his dedication and passion

    Bellator would be a good fit for him at MW depending how you match him.

    Hendricks vs Melvin or Kato or something would be ok. And like Go Go Plata said it will be on the cheap.

    Remember seeing some say didnt like the Hendricks/Costa fight but I thought it was perfect, squeeze the last bit of juice out of Hendricks to build up Costa on a big card and it worked.

    Now you'll see Hendricks come out and say how he's in best shape of his life, how he's free from evil grip of UFC and he can get his own sponsors and has freedom and you'll see the best Hendricks you ever saw.

    then he'll show up and miss weight for a MW fight and get blown out by Melvin.

    I think Bellator should collect him, I don't think he's absolutely terrible..he could still be a decent gatekeeper for Bellator at 185.
