UFC 185: Dana White Admits He “Didn’t Love” Johny Hendricks’ Win Over Matt Brown
By FCF Staff
Johny Hendricks admitted after his clear cut, decision win over Matt Brown that he wasn’t enthralled with his performance, and UFC President Dana White evidently agrees.
Hendricks largely relied on his renowned wrestling game to outscore Brown at UFC 185 on Saturday night, and in doing so, the former welterweight champ returned to the win column. When White was asked for his opinion on “Bigg Rigg’s” performance after the card, however, he stated (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“I’m happy for Johny. Johny has come off a rough, I guess we’ll call it a couple years. But I didn’t love the fight. Didn’t love it.”
The 31 year-old Hendricks won the welterweight title in March, 2014, by earning a unanimous decision win over Robbie Lawler, but he was forced to undergo bicep surgery afterwards. Hendricks didn’t return to the Octagon until last December, and he proceeded to lose the belt to Lawler via split decision.
The Texan fighter currently holds a record of 17-3.
