Johny Hendricks' days of fighting at welterweight are about to come to an end.

Hendricks, who failed to make the 171-pound limit on Thursday, prior to tonight's UFC 207 fight against Neil Magny, told MMAFighting.com that he's not going to cut to welterweight anymore.

"I'm done fighting at welterweight," he said, just hours before the fight. "Unless they open up a 175-pound division, I'm moving up to middleweight."

Theoretically there shouldn't even be a 170lb division. I have been saying it for years. There should be a 165lb division and a 175lb division. Hendricks belongs in a 175lb division. He's going to get murdered at 185.

Too many A1 Thick & Hearties, bro.

While it's not the nicest thing to do, I'd laugh if he can't make 185, either.

I think he gets cut, too. If the dude made the move to 185 it'd be a bad decision. Could you imagine Hendricks vs Jacare, Belfort, Weidman, Romero, Rockhold. A whole slew of killers there in the top of the field. Hendricks needs to retire or go on an Ayahuasca journey.
