UFC Johny Hendricks

Remember when Johny Hendricks (Pictured) put Martin Kampmann to sleep with a thunderous left hand and UFC president Dana White immediately anointed him the welterweight top contender? Well, fast forward just 19 days and it appears MMA’s big boss has changed course.

And to the surprise of nobody, the bearded brawler is not too pleased.

Bad news travels fast in the Twitter universe. Only minutes after White proclaimed he would likely grant 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre his wish by allowing him to defend his throne against Nick Diaz in his next outing, Hendricks let the world know his next dibs status should have never been revoked.

“I don’t really know what to say but please @danawhite give me a shot @GeorgesStPierre if u want a fight I will give him anything he can take,” Hendricks tweeted. “I have to agree with that as well let him win one then if @GeorgesStPierre gets through me then let him fight ND.

“No I know my power is going no where only getting stronger and faster but why wait when it’s my time lol.”

Hendricks then took his frustrations a step further by suggesting he’ll ride the pine until he gets his opportunity at the crown.

“Yes I will sit out if I don’t get a title shot,” Hendricks added. “Bc I don’t want to fight anyone without the belt u see.”

When a fan said “Bigg Rigg” should tear a page out of Diaz’s book and talk his way into a title tilt by telling GSP, “Don’t be scared, homie,” Hendricks chuckled because that’s something he couldn’t do because “…I know he is scared.”

White quickly tried to step in and calm the waters by letting the lefty know that his time will come.

“I agree that u deserve it and u will get ur shot,” White tweeted.

No word on when GSP and Diaz will throw down or who Hendricks will have to fight in the interim.
