UFC quick quote: Johny Hendricks and his big left hand are 'not real difficult to figure out'

Secrets? What secrets? Johny Hendricks is a good wrestler with a big left hand, which wasn't real difficult for Freddie Roach and his star pupil, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, to figure out.


"His next opponent, Hendricks, is a southpaw with a good punch. I have tape on Hendricks and we're working to nullify what he does. We got the gameplan pretty much down already. We're working on it. He's always looking for that big shot. He's a veteran wrestler, of course, a good wrestler, but he doesn't even like to wrestle. He depends on that big left hand. He doesn't even want to go to the ground too much. He's not real difficult to figure out."

If "Bigg Rigg" thought he had a big surprise for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, he may be disappointed to learn that Freddie Roach (via Fight Hub TV) has already figured him out. In addition, the longtime boxing trainer has already helped "Rush" develop a gameplan to "nullify" Johny Hendricks, who is expected to challenge for the title at some point later this year. No date or venue have been set, but it wouldn't be much of a surprise to mixed martial arts (MMA) fans if this is the place to be for GSP's next 170-pound title defense.
