Goodnight, sweet and salty prince.
Too bad, I wanted to see him fight Jake Ellenberger
I don't really believe any guys when they say they are retiring, but Hendricks had a great run in the UFC. Loved his KO of Fitch, probably beat GSP, and then put out a couple of great title fights.
His downfall was sad, but before and during his prime he was always fun to watch. Seven performance bonuses, beat GSP in the court of public opinion, and did win the belt later on. Was also a 2-time NCAA Division 1 wrestling champion which is an amazing feat in itself.
He's not the same post-USADA and he truly looked like his heart simply was not in it anymore, he couldn't even cut down to WW anymore. Would be shocked if he comes back.
I woke up this morning to Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell talking about getting 500,000 PPV buys. Nobody coming out of retirement will shock me that much.
In all seriousness though, good decision by him. He was declining fast and wasn't going to do anything at 185.
