6 Reasons to Believe Johny Hendricks Will Defeat Carlos Condit at UFC 158
Johny Hendricks will be afforded another chance to remind Dana White that he’s more than deserving of a title shot on March 16th, when he meets Carlos Condit in the co-main event of UFC 158.
Hendricks, who turned in a movie-like performance against Martin Kampmann at UFC 154, has now beaten three top-10 ranked foes in succession, stopping two of them in emphatic fashion. He’s tired of battering the division’s best only to be ignored in his lobbying for a bout with champion Georges St-Pierre.
Condit should theoretically be his final test. If Hendricks topples Condit, especially in explosive fashion, it would be downright criminal to deny him a fight with the champ.
But realistically, he may not have too much to worry about. As amazing as Condit is, Hendricks has some unique strengths that should—assuming he fights smart but doesn’t abandon his killer instinct—lead him to victory.
