Johny Hendricks wants all of his fans and supporters to know he is ready to go after a last-minute weight-cut Friday.
Hendricks sent a scare through the UFC world when he failed to hit the scale at 170 pounds for his UFC 171 title fight with Robbie Lawler Saturday.
However, after heading to the back, “Bigg Rigg” returned less than two hours later and successfully weighed in at 170 pounds – minus his shorts.
The UFC welterweight title will be on the line when he steps inside the Octagon against Lawler in Dallas, and Hendricks posted a message on Twitter a few hours after his correct weigh-in stating everything is good.
Thanks for all the support! I'm rehydrated feeling great and heading to the steakhouse for dinner! BIG day tomorrow. : )
