Tommy Toe Hold Show: Georges St-Pierre interviews Johny Hendricks, Robbie Lawler ahead of UFC 181

Johny 3-5-5!!!

What's up fight fans? Welcome to another exclusive episode of the Tommy Toe Hold Show (TTTHS) for SB Nation!

I'm imitation crab meat of mixed martial arts (MMA), Tommy Toe Hold. Today: Not Georges St Pierre interviews Not Johny Hendricks and Not Robbie Lawler before their rematch this Saturday (Dec. 6, 2014) in the UFC 181 main event from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hendricks has the unfortunate task of being the champion in the Welterweight division directly after the greatest 170-pound MMA fighter of all time, Georges St-Pierre. And not only does he have to follow in his footsteps, he's doing so under circumstances in which GSP never lost the belt, but gave it up to take a break.

And I think that the idea of St-Pierre looms over the entire division because there is a chance he could come back. If he comes back, does he get a title right away? He must want to show everyone that he can beat Hendricks decisively. Does Hendricks need to beat GSP to cement his legacy after the controversial decision loss?

I think that for both St-Pierre and Hendricks there is unfinished business there, so this mock interview explores how I feel GSP might do as a guest commentator interviewing the current champ.
