Johny Hendricks explains the 'Warrior Code': 'Getting punched in the face ain't that bad'

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight kingpin Johny Hendricks will look to bounce back from losing his title to Robbie Lawler when he takes on No. 5 ranked contender Matt Brown next weekend (Sat., March 14, 2015) on the main card of the UFC 185 pay-per-view (PPV) from Dallas, Texas live from the American Airlines Center. With a victory likely earning "Bigg Rigg" another crack at UFC gold, the promotion unveiled a new UFC Ultimate Insider "Warrior Code" segment for the heavy-handed Oklahoman. Hendricks explains in the video how instincts and momentum work in a fight, and how he has a penchant for getting punched in the face as a mixed martial artist, but he kind of enjoys it.
