Video: Johny Hendricks pokes fun at weight-cutting issues with hilarious parody video

Say what you will about Johny Hendricks, but the man has a sense of humor.

The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight champion of the world has had a checkered past when it comes to hitting the 170-pound limit. So-much-so that Dana White once declared "Bigg Rigg" would have to move up to Middleweight after his most recent scale fail.

You can blame dear meat for that, though.

During the recent World MMA Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hendricks poked fun at his weight-cutting issues with this hilarious video that sees the former champion lip sync to a remix version of The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face."

Of course, Johny turned his weight-cutting woes in his previous bout against Stephen Thompson at UFC Fight Night 82. Unfortunately for "Bigg Rigg," it didn't equate to a win, as "Wonderboy" took it to the power puncher, knocking him out in the very first round with a diverse arsenal of strikes.
