Although the headline is familiar, this time it comes at Middleweight. Johny Hendricks has now missed weight in two different weight classes; 15 pounds apart.
Much has been said after having weight cutting issues at Welterweight three times, however Hendricks seemed to be at home at Middleweight when he defeated Hector Lombard earlier this year. It was a fight in which Hendricks looked completely re-energized, claiming himself to be reborn.
Also missing weight for Sunday’s action in Oklahoma City was Jared “Flash” Gordon, coming in 3 pounds over. The former CFFC Lightweight Champion was scratched from UFC 211 due to food poisoning symptoms.
