Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks has retired from the sport of mixed martial arts. That being said, the former title holder has since signed on for a bare-knuckle boxing match up.
Johny Hendricks was initially set to headline WBKFF’s inaugural Rise of the Titans event on Nov. 9 against Brennan Ward. However, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto has since reported that Ward has pulled out of the fight over a contract dispute. It has yet to be determined if a replacement opponent will be provided for Johny Hendricks, but the former UFC title holder is reportedly likely to pull out of the event.
