Who should be next for UFC welterweight champ Johny Hendricks?

It only took 10 rounds in less than five months. But now, Johny Hendricks is the new UFC welterweight champion. Not even 10 minutes removed from the biggest win of his career, it’s all about who’s next. When you’re the champ, it’s not about winning, it’s about holding on to the belt and staying on top of the mountain. Hendricks already said it’s not his job to make the fights,

From there, UFC President Dana White had no other option but to make a fight for the vacant UFC welterweight title. That

Can old school fighters win UFC titles in 2014?

Can Robbie Lawler be the first to pull it off at UFC 171, because that’s exactly what will happen if he defeats Johny Hendricks in the main event for the right to hold the title of UFC welterweight champion? Hendricks is gonna win by knockout. Of course I echoed identical sentiments when Josh Koscheck and Rory MacDonald stepped in to the cage across from him and was wrong both times. I
