Johny Hendricks made his claim as the No. 1 contender to George St-Pierre's belt with a quick knockout of Martin Kampmann at UFC 154.
However, the question is, will he get the championship fight? GSP may end up taking on Anderson Silva in a superfight in 2013, and that would put Hendricks on the shelf for a long time should he wait.
When looking at potential fighters who could make a claim at being a top-10 opponent, Hendricks holds a victory over them or they are coming off a loss. It narrows the list of potential opponents down considerably.
These are five fighters Johny Hendricks could take on in his next bout inside the Octagon.
