UFC Quick Quote: 'Excited' Johny Hendricks just can't wait to hit Josh Koscheck

"Man, I just can't wait. I thought I was excited for Jon Fitch, but actually, it's this fight that I'm really excited for. I knew that if I didn't get that title shot and that if Carlos Condit wanted to wait, I knew I had to have somebody. So, Josh Koscheck's right there. If I beat him, I might get 'Fighter of the Year.' That's what I'm looking for now. If I don't get that title shot, let's move towards something else. I'm gonna put my hands on him, take him down...whatever. You know what I mean? I don't care where the fight goes. I believe I'm better than him, everywhere the fight goes. Actually, I just can't wait to hit him and put this left hand on him and see what happens."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Johny Hendricks will look to notch his fourth win in a row when he takes on Josh Koscheck at UFC on FOX 3, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sat., May 5, 2012. If the former NCAA Division I wrestling national champion is suffering from nerves, he surely did not show it during an interview with FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight." "Bigg Rigg" is hoping to notch another huge victory and hopefully get himself "in the mix." He's had several impressive, recent wins in the Octagon, including a vicious first-round knockout against Jon Fitch in his last bout at UFC 141, in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 30, 2011. He has quite a wave of momentum going, but is "Fighter of the Year" too lofty of a goal?
