Expected upcoming UFC welterweight challenger Johny Hendricks is brimming with confidence as he anxiously awaits a title bout with Georges St-Pierre, and his confidence was on full display in the latest edition of FUEL TV's "Octo-Questions."
One of the questions asked by interviewed Ariel Helwani was who has a better H-Bomb, Hendricks or former PRIDE and Strikeforce champ Dan Henderson.
"Bigg Rigg's" response may be a shocking to some: "Ohhh that's a good one! Man, he's been in it a little longer than I have, but I think I can catch him...so I'm gonna go with myself."
Despite an 11-1 record at the time, Hendricks had little hype behind him until he knocked out former welterweight title challenger Jon Fitch in just 12 seconds at UFC 141 in December 2011.
Since then, Hendricks has rattled off three more wins over stiff opposition in Josh Koscheck, Martin Kampmann and Carlos Condit, flooring Kampmann in under a minute with his now famed left hand.
Dating back to March 2011, Hendricks has won six in a row, a welterweight streak second only to GSP (11 wins in a row).
Hendo, who will celebrate his 16-year anniversary in the sport when he fights Rashad Evans at UFC 161 this Saturday, has notched 13 knockouts in his 38-fight career.
Some of his most notable KO's came against Wanderlei Silva, Michael Bisping and Fedor Emelianenko.
Also worth noting is that Hendo is feared for the big punches he lands with his right hand, as opposed to Hendricks' big power coming from his left hand.
Fight fans, let your voice be heard. Who has the better H-Bomb: Hendricks or Henderson?
