There’s nothing better than finding out you have a new baby on the way, and this father and ex-UFC champion’s reaction is filmed the very moment he learns of a new son on the way…….
Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks has been in some serious wars during his mixed martial arts career. He had two awesome fights with Robbie Lawler, winning the first and losing the rematch, both by way of decision after five exciting rounds.
Before that he faced Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 when the Canadian superstar was still the champion. ‘Bigg Rigg’ lost by was of split decision, but many still argue against the very controversial judge’s scoring of that fight.
The lead up to Hendricks’ first title shot, vs GSP, was filled with spectacular knockouts. He finished Martin Kampmann, Jon Fitch, TJ Waldburger, Charlie Brenneman and Amir Sadollah all with punches.
‘Bigg Rigg’ has been out of luck lately though, and was unable to even make weight for his Scheduled UFC 192 bout with Tyron Woodley. With a title shot against the winner of Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit at UFC 195 in the waiting, Hendricks had to be admitted to hospital.
A botched weight cut apparently led to a clogged intestine and liver problems for Hendricks, who had previously said his weight cutting problems were now behind him.
Then UFC president Dana White declared that Hendricks wouldn’t be fighting at 170 pounds any more, and instead would only be allowed to compete as a middleweight.
It’s not all been bad news though, as you’ll see how happy Hendricks was when he found out about his baby being a boy…..
