    However since he can't keep his diet in check he'll likely be forced to fight at MW next whether he wins or loses. Either that or he'll retire.

    By this logic Kelvin is a small WW and Lineker is a small FLW. And Hunt and Woodley are undersized.

    Ts is referring to his frame. And he is right. Hendricks is small for the new breed of fighters. Undisciplined.

    He's a big WW but a small MW. If you cant make weight, your too big for that weight class. If you weigh 170, your a welterweight sorry bro

    Wonderboy is a smaller WW regardless of the fact he beat Hendricks, he weighed 178 on fight night against Woodley. Sherdog has almost forgotten that weight classes aren't height or "frame" classes.

    He's a small WW who can't make weight. Makes sense

    I don't care how many times he's made weight before or if he has the natural frame of a Welterweight. If you no longer can make the weight consistently then you don't belong at that weight class. Johnny isn't a Welterweight anymore

    He's got no business fighting at MW at 5'9

    Nah, the overrating of height and reach on here is a fad.

    He'll have to retire, I don't think he's going to do well at 185, which is the land of giants.

    lol exactly what I've been saying for so long. people think he's a LHW now just because he's missing weight. I think if there was a 160 weight class he could make that weight if he was serious about cutting weight. Hendricks is just using weight-cutting as an excuse if he loses.

    USADA era...

    He won't be the UFC's problem after tomorrow. Retirement, or Bellator. Those are his most likely options.

    I don't pity this clown even a little bit. A person could write a book with all the reasons there are to dislike this guy. Your 15 mins are up... Exit stage left.

    Won't prove much given how Hendricks has been struggling.

    Meanwhile there'll always be fighters like DC, Romero, Woodley, Edgar, Lineker, Mighty Mouse, Shevchenko etc. to prove shorter fighters will never be rendered obsolete as height fetishists imagine.
