The UFC 171 main event could have been waved off before it even commenced.

If he did that I would have killed him
Dallas wasn't that exciting. I had more fun in Houston

Johny Hendricks needs to shut him mouth with these excusses after close fights. It was a close, competitive fight that you won. Let it go, give Lawler his due an move on to greener pastures.

I hate it when fighters say stuff like this. If you won, what's the point of making excuses?

Seems like a null statement, he was gonna pull out until he found out the title was on the line? No fighter pulls out when they're top 5, let alone top 3. Johnny also loves to talk, watching post fight press conferences with him, he just keeps rambling on and on. Love the guy, but GD does he never shut up, the press love him.

Could be the reason we saw the most pitter patter jabs of his career.

Ok with it coming out. I thought he might have had some sort of injury coming in with the way he looked etc, so if it comes out who cares.
