Dana White on Johny Hendricks: “He was 26 pounds over weight on Tuesday”

Dana White spoke to Megan Olivi on Johny Hendricks not be able to make weight for his fight against Tyron Woodley at UFC 192 and what he believes is next for him in terms of moving up to 185.

Dana stated that:

“They called me last night and said he was in a lot of pain and he laid down he was better and when he laid down he felt less pain, then I said take him to the hospital they didn’t wanna go to the hospital cause they knew they’d say he’s dehydrated and they didn’t give him a IV but it’s not worth it, it’s not worth a dangerous weight cut to come in and fight no matter how big the fight was and this was a big fight for us. Tuesday he came in he was 26 pounds over weight on Tuesday that’s a huge weight we try to discourage those type of weight cuts but these guys run their own camps”
