Video: Watch a fired-up Johny Hendricks hit 170 on his second attempt at UFC 171 weigh ins

Johnny Hendricks is FIRED UP. Probably because he was a beard hair away from losing his shot at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title, thanks to a botched weight cut that saw him smash the scale at 171.5 pounds for Saturday night's (March 15, 2014) title fight opposite Robbie Lawler. "Bigg Rigg" was not afforded the usual one pound allowance because it was a championship fight, but still managed to make his mark after a second round of sweat. All is well that ends well!
