    Hendricks, "If I can’t be champ without them, I’ll never revert to drugs to be champ.”

    Revert means to return to a previous state, condition, or practice. If it was a Freudian slip, he left out the word 'again' after champ.

    The other explanation is that he doesn't know how to use 'revert' correctly.

    He is a shell of his former self.
    GSP was right.

    Who knows for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if Johny doesn't fully understand the context of the word.

    He meant to use the word "resort".

    Give him a break. He gets punched in the head for a living.

    I'm sure he meant resort. A while back, he was talking about his nutritionist and said she was a blessing in disguise, so I don't think he knows what words and phrases actually mean.

    I NEVER accuse fighters of juicing unless they are popped.

    But holy fuck, man.

    The guy lost to the GOAT in a close fight ( Yes, TheRassler... He fucking lost. Deal with it ).

    Now he's for shit. Any reasonable explanation would be acceptable here.

    Love of food doesn't quite cut it.

    I'm sure he meant resort, but revert very well may apply. I'm not accusing him, but GSP did.

    He's been pretty consistent his whole career though it's not like he just started knocking guys dead and then USADA came along and everything changed.

    Poor word choice, he meant to say "I'll never revert to French fries to be champ again"

    Pre the first Robbie fight Hendricks was a force to be reckoned with.

    christ, he meant "resort" punched in the head by Robbie Lawler for 10 fucking rounds, also you try giving an interview with 100% of your facilities and you'll still fuck up easy words when a fucking mic and a camera are on your ass.

    Well, he looked like a worldbeater on his way to a title shot, ducked testing and had the best fight of his life against a thoroughly tested GSP, the best WW to ever live.

    Then USADA comes in and he can't make weight, gets finished in the first round and loses to a top 15 guy.

    He likely meant "resort" instead of "revert." Brain lapses, everyone has them from time to time. I wouldn't expect anything less from a guy who gets punched in the head for a living.

    So we have a testing baseline for GSP by WADA !? Have we ever seen the results!?

    Honestly curious, didn't think he released anything to the public.

    First thing I noticed in that photo was that there are no fries to be seen.

    Good work johnny! You can have the burger without the fries.

    VADA tested him and they make it public when someone fails, that's the point of doing VADA, otherwise it wouldn't prove shit. Don't know if they release the results if you don't fail though.
