    Shouldn't Hendricks be fighting a top 5?Maybe Cerrone,I mean he gave GSP a fuckin hell of a fight and he arguably won that fight,so why should he fight this guy?

    He just lost to Kelvin Gastelum, who Magny beat. This is a step up from the level of fighters he should be getting IMO.

    you do realize that it has been 3 years and 5 fights for Hendricks since the GSP fight right? Why are you looking at that fight as a reason for the competition he should be facing?

    He lost his last 2 fights, 1 of which was to someone who was not in the top 5. Magney is the perfect level of competition for him. If anything, Magney could be fighting someone a bit higher. He beat Lombard and Gastelum.

    Since he's an ex champ you gotta give him the benefit of the doubt.Plus the rankings are totally fucked!

    I think Magny even beats him. Johny's sudden decline is odd

    Agreed on both counts. Magney's chin/recovery and cardio should make him the favorite most likely.
