"I've been telling everybody I really want the winner of [Diaz/Condit]. You don't get this opportunity too often. Now that I've done it in the ring, I've got to do it outside the ring. If I don't promote myself outside the ring -- I mean, there are great fights going on and now they're happening almost every week. You can be forgotten. So if I don't say in the news that I want that interim title shot -- there's a fight this weekend in the 170 class, and [if Koscheck or Pierce] does good, I might get bumped. So I always got to be out there making my case. I want my goal. My goal is to be UFC champ some day, and I know I'm right there. I just need that shot. Here's the thing. Unless the UFC says, ‘Johny, you have to fight -- we want you to get a shot at the title, but we have some questions, and you need another one first,' then of course I'm not going to bite the hand that feeds me. I'm going to do what they say. But if it's up to me, I'd much rather go for the UFC interim belt. I've seen so many people who are right there, right there to get that shot and something happens ... it never fails, something happens, and they don't win. And then it takes them three or four fights to get back, which is a year to a year-and-a-half back, and that's if everything lines up perfectly."

Slow your roll Hendricks. The winner of Sanchez/Ellenberger sounds more appropriate to me.

This. Hendricks vs Sanchez/Ellenberger winner for no.1 contender spot.

Then if GSP isn't ready to face Condit/Diaz winner, then whoever wins the one above faces the interim champ.

Or just Hendricks vs another semi-high ranked guy. Or Alves/Kampmann winner.

Hendricks should get the winner of Sanchez/Ellenberger. Then that should be for the #1 contender. Winner of Condit/Diaz should wait for GSP to come back. Loser of Condit/Diaz should fight Sanchez/Ellenberger loser.
I dont know if this makes sense. It did while I was typing it.

Hendricks vs Koscheck if he impresses
Condit/Diaz loser vs Ellenberger/Sanchez winner
Kampmann/Alves winner vs Sanchez/Ellenberger loser

I say let him face winner of Ellenberger/Sanchez and if he wins that let him fight for the title.

I totally agree with this assessment.

Good for Hendricks for promoting himself, but he's still got a while to wait in line before a title shot, if he deserves to get one at all (jury is still out on that one, IMO).
