Johny Hendricks Says His “Knee is Fine,” Doesn’t Expect to be Sidelined Until 2014
ollowing a loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 over the weekend, Johny Hendricks not only ended up on the wrong end of a split decision, he also wound up on the Nevada State Athletic Commission medically suspended list.

It’s nothing new in MMA – by and large, teammates don’t like to fight teammates. Had Rory MacDonald beaten Robbie Lawler on Saturday at UFC 167, a win by teammate Georges St-Pierre may have just been the next big situation with a teammate/friend/training partner asked to fight his gym brethren.

Right before Lawler’s win, Tyron Woodley won the “Knockout of the Night” bonus by decimating Josh Koscheck in the first round.
