UFC President, Dana White just announced that GSP will be stepping away from the sport for an unknown amount of time. With that news, our very own Johny Hendricks will fight for the belt against Robbie Lawler. The bout will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on March 15th. The crowd will no doubt be on the side of Hendricks as Team Takedown is based in the area.
Most fight fans believe that Hendricks should already be the champion after a controversial decision against GSP on November 16th in Las Vegas. Hendricks will now look to claim what he thinks should have already been his championship belt!
