    At least from the UFC's perspective. Because unknowingly they created a marketing nightmare in the form Wonderboy and destroyed Hendrick's chance at ever being a title contender. Because if WB never took the fight and was stuck fighting guys like Gunnar, Larkin, Tarec, Brown, etc...he would have never been noticed for the fighting machine he is. Just another special Karate guy who had weird looking kicks.

    Bad idea for Hendricks?

    I'd say so.

    It was a bad idea for hendricks but as he wasnt a draw they dont care.Not like he was Gsp.Pretty much every champ from 170 above will get a bottom line of 250k ppv buys.

    But as he since lost to gastelum,and looks a shadow of his former shelf.Id say if they didnt want to mess up hendricks they wouldn't of brought in usada.
     
  11. It's not like Johny was super marketable. His fans need to find new fighters to root for.

    Wonderboy is not a marketing nightmare, ffs. He's an exciting striker and a charismatic guy.
