Stay home! Johny Hendricks doesn't care if Georges St. Pierre ever comes back to UFC

While "Bigg Rigg" would love a rematch, he's comfortable knowing he beat "Rush" at UFC 167, despite losing a split decision last November in Las Vegas.

"I'd love to have a rematch, don't get me wrong, but if he never came back it wouldn't bother me none. I'm trying to make my own legacy and if he's part of it that'd be great. If not, I don't care. Me and Georges St-Pierre? No. I still can't. I re-watch it and I re-watch it and I re-watch it and the best I can do is three [rounds] to two. Everybody's human. Everybody makes mistakes. It was sort of on my side because I got the fight in Dallas and actually fought a very tough fight again and ended up winning."

Retire, don't retire, Johny Hendricks doesn't care. That's according to comments the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion made to UFC Tonight (via MMA Fighting) when asked about the future of Georges St. Pierre, who walked away from mixed martial arts (MMA) in late 2013. Hendricks dropped a close split decision loss to "Rush" at UFC 167 last November, but eventually got his hands around the gold by outpointing Robbie Lawler at UFC 171, thanks to St. Pierre's decision to vacate the title. But does he have unfinished business with the French-Canadian? Doesn't sound that way, but "Bigg Rigg" -- benched until further notice thanks to a surgicaly-repaired bicep -- has to worry about his next challenge inside the Octagon, and not a former champ who is rehabbing an ACL injury. Well, at least for now, as we could see St. Pierre return in 2015. Or perhaps not.
