Forced To Move Up, Hendricks Confesses Being 200 Pounds One Day From Weigh-Ins

Ultimate Fighting Championship stagehands have set up the octagon in Halifax, Nova Scotia for “UFC Fight Night 105” on Sunday. Former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks has made the move to middleweight after failing to meet the welterweight cut off multiple times at weigh-ins, and it seems his cut down to middleweight may be a difficult one as well.

Hendricks has come out and stated that he is weighing close to 200 pounds just days before he has to make weight. “UFC Fight Night 105” will practice the early weigh-ins, which means Hendricks must cut nearly fourteen pounds in less than forty-eight hours to make weight:

Hendricks is scheduled to square off with Hector Lombard in the co-main event of the evening on Sunday.
