Johny Hendricks was born September 12, 1983 and is an American mixed martial artist and an accomplished former collegiate wrestler. He currently fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Welterweight division. As of March 2013, Hendricks is ranked as the #1 welterweight contender in the world by He is known for his very powerful punches, particularly from the left hand. With the WEC eliminating his weight class, Hendricks had to find another place to fight and signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). In May 2009, it was announced that Hendricks would be making his UFC debut against Ultimate Fighter 7 champion Amir Sadollah at UFC 101 from the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 8, 2009. In the opening seconds of the first round, Hendricks blocked a high head kick from Sadollah and countered with an uppercut knocking Sadollah to his knees. Hendricks continued to land punches until referee Dan Miragliotta pulled him off and ended the fight 29 seconds into the first round. After beating Sadollah, he jumped up and ran across the cage with a huge smile on his face, earning him the unofficial nickname "Happy Beard Guy" among fight fans. Some people criticized Miragliotta for stopping the fight too early, as Sadollah seemed to be trying to get up, but Miragliotta defended his stoppage saying Sadollah was "out of it" and "still looked glassy eyed and asked me what happened." Hendricks was expected to face Jake Ellenberger on March 16, 2013 at UFC 158. However, Hendricks was pulled from the Ellenberger bout in favor of a matchup with Carlos Condit at the event after Condit's original opponent Rory MacDonald, pulled out of the bout with an injury. Hendricks dominated most of the fight with his wrestling and striking, winning via unanimous decision. The win also earned him his first Fight of the Night bonus. Hendricks is still the no. 1 contender and presumably will be the next man to face Georges St. Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Title.
