    What the hell happened to this guy?

    Is it a classic story of only relying on his big punch?

    Is it just his weight issues?

    How did he rise to the championship and now is pretty mediocre?

    Is it the competition is just so good now?

    Wonderboy took his soul. But idk, it just seems like he never found a good camp to improve all of his game (which he needs). He didn't really seem motivated either.

    Some fighters regress quicker than others. Once he lost to Robbie he hasn't been the same. I would say for him to drop to lightweight but he can't even have a nice cut to welterweight. Sorry to say this but I see Hendricks in Bellator soon

    I think it's the ballooning up between fights. His face looked completely sunken in during his last few appearances. He doesn't look as healthy to me.

    He's not making the right choices. Exhibit A- Bigg Rigg Steakhouse
    Exhibit B- that chariot he drives around in

    I think he has lost the drive to be champion. Probably because he feels he gets screwed every time a fight goes to a decision. In his opinion, he has never lost a decision.

    I was a big Hendricks fan before he started complaining in every single interview he did. Know what I mean?

    USADA happened. Everybody knows it.

    Ducked testing against GSP and looked like a world beater - USADA came in and he started missing weight, got finished in the first round and lost to a top 15 guy.

    I bet on fights and the USADA thing is changing who is good and who is not. Holly Holm got away with it when she fought in Australia, not here in the states. Pettis, Holm, Hendricks, RDA, the list will continue

    i think the close losses/robberies really took a lot out of his motivation/confidence.

    What? He's been on a tear and got caught with a punch from a great boxer. Can't blame that on USADA, give it another fight at least.

    He has kids he takes care of. Surgery. Not disciplined with his diet. A combination of factors.

    i think most all of you guys are right. perfect storm: usada, iv ban, lost motivation, poor eating habits catching up to him, bad camp, showing age/wear and tear...

    i don't see johny ever being very good again, if he even fights at all
