Podcast: Johny Hendricks, Jonathan Tweedale
The Sherdog Radio Network was live Friday with another edition of
"Beatdown." Joining TJ De Santis and Sherdog.com founder Jeff
Sherwood was UFC welterweight contender Johny
Hendricks and Nick Diaz's
attorney, Jonathan Tweedale.
Hendricks has done his job again and again. Following another win
at 170 pounds the Team Takedown product has been officially dubbed
the No. 1 contender. The two-time Division I wrestling champion
joined TJ and Jeff to talk about a potential fight with champion
Pierre, his recent victory over Carlos Condit
and if he feels a St Pierre title fight is coming this year.
Tweedale is crying foul. The attorney for former Strikeforce
welterweight champion Diaz is pointing out what he feels are flaws
on behalf of the Quebec commission at UFC 158. One of those flaws
is allegedly allowing Georges St.
Pierre to weigh in at 170.9 pounds for a title fight. Under the
unified rules in mixed martial arts a fighter involved in a
championship affair may not weigh in over the contracted weight at
all. Tweedale describes the night of weigh ins and what he feels
was done to deny his client a fair title match.
TJ and Jeff discuss other topics in mixed martial arts, take
listener calls, and wrap up the SRN's two-week long Nick Diaz
impression contest. Listen to “Beatdown” here
