Podcast: Johny Hendricks, Jake Ellenberger
"Beatdown" was back Wednesday as TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood
welcomed UFC welterweight fighters Johny
Hendricks and Jake
Ellenberger to the program. The two men are set to face off
against one another at March's UFC 158 card in Montreal.
"The Bigg Rigg" Johny
Hendricks has had an outstanding couple of years inside the
UFC's octagon. Defeating perennial top contenders like Josh
Koscheck, Jon Fitch, and
his most recent knockout victory over Martin
Kampmann. Yet, Hendricks' fight with welterweight champion
Georges St.Pierre has been tabled for now. Instead, he will face
Ellenberger at UFC 158. The Team Takedown product joined TJ and
Jeff to talk about his championship snubbing, his thoughts on
GSP-Diaz, and why he feels the Ellenberger match is more dangerous
than a fight with St. Pierre.
The other side of that same story is told as Jake
Ellenberger joins "Beatdown" to state his case as why he may be
next in line for "Rush." The Nebraska native talked with TJ and
Jeff about the March fight, if he feels Hendricks is truly the
number one contender, and what he would be doing if he weren't
competing in mixed martial arts.
De Santis and Sherwood take more year end predictions, answer
calls, emails and tweets, and poll the audience on who the best
commentating team is mixed martial arts is.
