The UFC Welterweight contender says that a bad hand-wrapping job caused him to pull back on his punches against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167.

Crappy ass PR statement...shut up! Look, you said yourself you went 70% during the fight to make sure you could last all 5 rounds and cruised in the last round because you though the fight was in the bag. That's it, enough said...how would you feel if he said he was only going 70% on his takedowns or grappling, what if he tried to blame it on his shorts or choice of cup? Shut the fuck up with the bullshit excuse and next time drop that opponent and keep it out of the hands of the garbage ass judges in this sport!

He wont last 2 rds at 90-100% and he will get destroyed.

GSP never strike at 90-100% either and he dont call his mon for that.

Next time Hendricks will not be able to do 1/10 of what he did last week, he better begin to prepare his list of excuses right aways.

I would like to see less swelling and bruising on his hands from this, as he indicated, but 70% power also means less energy lost, sometimes better accuracy, and better recovery to ready defense or the next attack.

Just like Joe Rogan always says when I go into spaz mode in UFC Undisputed 3: "Sometimes the better punch is the quicker one with less behind it"

That's a first
Never heard a excuse cause of hand wraps
How did he come up with 70% power. Not 71 or 74%??

Rashad is BETTER....hands down....and so is Johny.

My only compliant for Mr. Hendricks (and his corner) is his LACK of urgency in the 5th.

A lot of peeps are saying - - "Ohhh, I feel so bad for Johny, blah, blah, blah"

I don't feel sorry for him...he gave a C effort and still won...George used up every resource in his arsenal AND threw his Canadian Kitchen Sink at Bigg Rigg and still looked like the lesser of the two....Johny gave 70% and still ate Georges soul.

Amen!

I never minded Hendricks before but now I can't stand him. He's like Jake's genital warts, just won't shut up and go away. His new nickname should be Tito Ortiz

I always liked Hendricks, but with all the drug testing crap, accusing GSP of juicing even while testing, personally refusing to do the extra testing, and now all the excuses for the loss. His crap is getting old. Win or lose, GSP doesn't make excuses and man's up.
