Johny Hendricks is looking to build his own legacy in MMA, and he secretly hopes that former UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre is a part of it.

Much has changed since the epic yet controversial title fight from nearly a year ago.

St-Pierre is no longer an active fighter on the UFC roster, and Hendricks is the reigning welterweight champ. While “Big Rigg” refuses to dwell on the past, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the split-decision loss to St-Pierre at UFC 167 still irks him.

A chance to catch the torch from arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history eluded Hendricks that night, and sadly, it’s an opportunity he may never get back.

Hendricks told Ariel Helwani on Monday, during an appearance on The MMA Hour, that he would like a rematch with St-Pierre: 

Realistically, I’m not going to lie. I would like to fight him again because now the tides are changed, and not only that, that was my first five round fight. I’m getting smarter, I’m getting better the longer I’m in the Octagon and the more I hit that fifth round. I don’t want to continue to hit that fifth round, but it’s a good learning curve, that first one was. That’s why I was sort of excited to think that I was going to get a rematch.

Unfortunately for Hendricks, the rematch with St-Pierre never came to fruition.

A month after the bout, the French Canadian star vacated the UFC title and announced that he would be going on an indefinite hiatus during a media conference call. Instead of a rematch with St-Pierre, Hendricks was awarded a championship bout against top welterweight contender Robbie Lawler to fill the 170-pound title vacancy.

Hendricks defeated Lawler in a hard-fought decision victory. But even with the win and UFC title finally around his waist, it still has to be tough for Hendricks not to dwell on the decision loss to St-Pierre. He wanted to climb the mountain and be the man to finally upend the greatest welterweight of all time.

Just as UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman’s legacy began by defeating Anderson Silva, Hendricks hopes to do the same against St-Pierre:

I’m not here to take away from GSP. He did a lot of great things for this sport, a lot of great things for the welterweight division. I want to build my own legacy. If he’s in it, that’s awesome. If he’s not, that’s cool too. I’ll never beat his legacy. I’ll never beat Matt Hughes’ or Chuck Liddell’s or Randy Couture’s [legacies]. I got to make my own dent in the welterweight division my own way.

Hendricks may have missed out on an immediate rematch with the MMA legend, but there is still the possibility that the fight comes together in the future.

St-Pierre never officially retired from MMA. He made it clear that retirement was an option, but he would also be open to the possibility of returning in the future if the circumstances felt ideal. During an appearance on TVA Sports, St-Pierre claimed to have packed on 10 pounds of muscle just in case he decided to return and compete in the welterweight division.

MMAFighting’s Helwani translated an overview of the interview on Twitter:

Either St-Pierre is the biggest tease in the world, or he is seriously contemplating a UFC return. It’s highly unlikely that a decision is made anytime soon, as St-Pierre is still recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee.

In the meantime, Hendricks can now shift his focus to an upcoming rematch with Lawler.

San Jose has been a fighting hotbed for a long time. Check out this teaser for the UFC FIGHT PASS exclusive “Fight Town,” which is set for release on Tuesday, July 29.

View full post on Uploads by UFC – Ultimate Fighting Championship

There were times last week when it felt like MMA’s love affair with Matt Brown was on the ropes.

It’s no secret that Brown did some pretty dumb stuff leading up to his UFC on Fox 12 main event against Robbie Lawler. First, he put his foot in his mouth—again. Then, he committed professional fighting’s cardinal sin, missing weight for the biggest bout of his life.

At Thursday’s open workouts, a careless quip Brown made about his own underdog status—telling a reporter he’d probably never be a betting favorite until the UFC booked him against “some retard”—caused copious eye-rolling and facepalming on social media.

A day later he weighed in at 172.5-pounds, a full 1.5 over the limit for this fight. Afterward, Brown tried to shrug it off, telling Fox’s Ariel Helwani his “scale was wrong (or) whatever” and deadpanning that the key to beating Lawler would still be to “punch him before he punches me.”

Either of these gaffes could’ve been disastrous for another fighter, but Brown mostly managed to skate through unscathed.

Even though he lost his ensuing brawl with Lawler on Saturday night—and their hot-and-cold affair didn’t quite live up to our expectations as a potential fight of the year—Brown’s performance was just good enough for most of us to continue overlooking his flaws.

At least for now.

The defeat snapped Brown’s seven-fight, 29-month win streak, and as he fades back into rebuilding mode, it’d probably be a good idea for him to mind his manners moving forward.

After all, it’s a lot easier to be forgiven for your quirks when you’re winning.

One of the things we like about Brown, the affable everyman, is that he’s unfiltered. His no-bull attitude dovetails nicely with his inspiring personal story and take-no-prisoners fighting style. Clearly, though, it comes at a price.

Last week’s slip of the tongue constituted more thoughtlessness than malice, but it came on the heels of his ugly previous comments about female fighters. Taken together, Brown suddenly doesn’t seem quite as lovable anymore. For the first time during his magical two-year run it feels like his shtick has started to drag. We’re beginning to wonder if perhaps his particular brand of folksy straight talk is best consumed in small doses.

Luckily for him, he’s successfully walked the tightrope so far, owing to the facts that fans like him and his fighting style is the sort his bosses love to promote.

The UFC told MMA Junkie it was “disappointed” by Brown’s off-color comments, but mostly had his back on the issue of his unsuccessful weight cut. It easily could’ve hung him out to dry for both, but didn’t.

Instead, UFC President Dana White said the California State Athletic Commission miscommunicated with Brown about his ability to hit the scale a second time. The CSAC claims this isn’t exactly true, and reports differed on whether he’d be fined for the mishap.

Even in the wake of his loss to Lawler, Brown will seemingly retain his standing as a star in the UFC welterweight division. White came to the post-fight press conference still brimming with compliments for “The Immortal.”

“I actually think Matt Brown moves up in the rankings with that fight,” White said. “I don’t know how he didn‘t prove that he’s the No. 2 guy in the world right now with that performance.”

While the specifics of that statement are debatable, the general sentiment is clear. The UFC continues to regard Brown as a guy worth promoting, and he’s going to keep getting big fights.

That could be both good news and bad news, though. It means Brown still makes a compelling and exciting foil for nearly anybody in the 170-pound top 10, but the level of competition he’ll find there makes it unlikely he’ll again soar to the heights seen during his lengthy win streak.

Would fans remain as willing to laugh off his causal misogyny and tone-deaf jokes if the losses started to pile up? Would the UFC continue to suffer his rough edges even as he became less and less viable?

We all know the answers to those questions.

Because we like to watch him fight so much, our industry is still inclined to accept Brown as a double-edged sword—a guy who is refreshingly honest but occasionally strays into the untoward and the obnoxious.

But if that’s the guy Brown plans to be in 2014, he best keep winning. He’d probably find it a lot more difficult to maintain his warts-and-all acceptance if he doesn’t.

Following his win over Steven Siler at UFC on Fox 12, Noad Lahat is putting his fighting career on hold to rejoin the Israeli army in the conflict with Hamas militants on the Gaza strip.

Oddly enough, stepping into the cage on Saturday night was actually the calm before the storm for Lahat, who entered the bout knowing he would be heading back to his homeland. As the up-and-coming featherweight danced under the bright lights of the UFC, his family and friends were ducking for cover from missiles and gunfire in what seems like a million miles away.

Lahat dedicated his win over Siler to peace, not war. Sadly, the history of mankind has taught us that the road to peace sometimes leads to war. When asked why he was returning to fight, Lahat explained during an appearance on the CNN Newsroom that there was simply “no other way.”

“You can’t achieve peace without being ready for war,” he said. “If people are attacking you and they’re not going to stop until you’re dead, then you have to go and fight. There’s no other way.”

Military life is engraved in the Lahat family name.

Noad served three-and-a-half years in the Israeli army, while both of his parents were former generals. His older brother and sister have both served as well, and his younger brother plans to do the same.

There is no pressure coming from the Israeli government forcing Lahat to return and fight for his homeland. The 30-year-old MMA fighter is acting on his own behalf in laying down the four-ounce gloves and putting his life at risk by taking up arms and joining the battlefront.

“It’s by choice. They can’t call me if I’m not there, but the second they called my friends…I got my ticket and said, ‘I’m ready to go back,’” said Lahat.

A series of back-and-forth incidents involving failed peace talks, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers and the kidnapping and murder of a Palestinian teenager led to the recent spark in the ongoing conflict.

On July 8, Israeli Defense Forces [IDF] moved forward with Operation Protective Edge against Hamas militants in the Gaza strip. Military strikes have been carried out by both sides in the blood-rising conflict.

For Lahat, it’s just another round in an ongoing battle that isn’t any closer to being resolved.

“It’s just another round of this ridiculous game,” said Lahat. “Hamas are shooting at us. We try to respond, but we can’t because most of the world…don’t let us finish the job and take Hamas down. So we stop, and then they’re shooting again.”

In the face of uncertainty and chaos, Lahat urges his family and friends to “be strong” and stick together in the midst of yet another deadly conflict.

“We will win,” he said.

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is petitioning to fight Chris Weidman at UFC 181 on December 6. 

The fact that the perennial contender is already booked for that championship bout is inconsequential, at least according to Rockhold in his recent comments to Bloody Elbow

That licensing is questionable. Is the fact that he cried supposed to make us feel sorry that he’s been a lifelong cheater? He’s pretty much a pathological liar. He should really consider taking up acting. Maybe he should read for the next Expendables movie. He’s pretty much enough of a mutant to fit right in there … Here’s my opinion; there’s no way in Hell Vitor makes it to this fight. Something is gonna happen that prevents it. He’s either going to get off steroids, train and then get injured because he’s not on them anymore, get caught for PEDs, or he’s going to back out with an ‘injury’.

Despite failing a random drug test for elevated levels of testosterone in February, “The Phenom” still received a conditional license from the Nevada State Athletic Commission at their hearing last week, per MMA Junkie

Several fighters panned the NSAC decision since Belfort also failed a drug test for anabolic steroids in October 2006, per MMA Weekly

Furthermore, Belfort was an open user of testosterone replacement therapy until the commission banned the treatment in February and hasn’t fought on American soil since August 2011. 

Rockhold was one of the three fighters knocked out by Belfort via a head kick during his current win streak, with the American Kickboxing Academy standout suffering the lopsided defeat at UFC on FX 8 last May. 

Obviously, Rockhold didn’t gain any respect for his Brazilian adversary after the fact and has been calling for a rematch to prove the highlight-reel KO was a fluke, per FOX Sports.

According to the UFC’s official rankings, Belfort is the No. 2 middleweight in the world, while Rockhold cracks the list at No. 5. 

Rockhold has won 11 of his past 12 matchups and has rebounded from the loss to Belfort with two quick finishes over Costas Philippou and Tim Boetsch, respectively. 

Meanwhile, Belfort is 5-1 since August 2011 (all finishes) and his lone setback was a short-notice light heavyweight title bout against Jon Jones.

Will Belfort be able to make it to his championship showdown with “The All-American” at the end of the year? Or will Rockhold‘s prediction ring true as the challenger will need to be replaced sooner than later?

Bobby Green had a lot on his mind heading into UFC on Fox 12 but didn’t let that deter him from picking up the biggest win of his career over Josh Thomson.

Green, still mourning his brother’s passing, put on the performance of a lifetime against a legit top-five lightweight contender. Green stepped in on late notice for an injured Michael Johnson to face Thomson and despite the winning streak Green was on, most fans pegged Thomson down for a win.

The fight ended up going to a split decision, but it’s still a huge win for Green. Stepping in on late notice is tough for anyone, much less going up against one of the best lightweights in the UFC. With the huge victory, Green will likely see himself shoot up the lightweight rankings and into another high-profile bout.

That fight is likely to be against any of the men on this list.
