Johny Hendricks breaks silence after latest loss, says it’s “back to the grind”

There was a time, not all that long ago, when Johny Hendricks was considered the best welterweight on earth.

Unfortunately, the former welterweight king has since experienced an abrupt and violent decline.

In the face of a string of losses and a difficult cut to the welterweight division’s 170-pound limit, Hendricks opted to move north to the 185-pound middleweight division. And while a win over Hector Lombard in his middleweight debut initially made this move look like a potential career-saver, he has since been knocked senseless by hulking middleweights in Tim Boetsch and, as of last weekend, Paulo “The Eraser” Costa.
