Johny Hendricks MMA Career

After graduating from Oregon State University in 2007, Hendricks transferred to Las Vegas and trained at Cobra Kai Jiu Jitsu under the direction of Marc Laimon with two other former Oregon State University wrestlers, Shane Roller and Jake Rosholt. Hendricks moved to Texas and contracted with Team Takedown afterward. This elite fighter management team supports the training of fighters and distributes their profits. Seven months after his final collegiate wrestling match, Hendricks participated in his first professional mixed martial arts (MMA) bout.

On his professional MMA début on September 28, 2007, he defeated Victor Rackliff via controversial third-round TKO at Masters of the Cage 16 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Rackliff was dominating the exchanges on the feet, and he knocked Hendricks in the third round when the two fighters swapped punches. Hendricks fought again in 2007, defeating Spencer Cowley by TKO in the second round at Snakebite Fight Night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Hendricks won his television debut on March 15, 2008, against Richard Gamble via first-round submission at HDNet Fights Xtreme Fighting League, also in Tulsa.

Johny Hendricks UFC Career

Hendricks had to find another location for his fights, so he joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship. It was announced in May 2009 that Hendricks would make his UFC debut against Ultimate Fighter 7 champion Amir Sadollah on August 8, 2009, at UFC 101 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hendricks blocked a high head kick from Sadollah and countered with an uppercut, bringing Sadollah to his knees in the opening seconds of the first round. Twenty-nine seconds into the first round, referee Dan Miragliotta pulled Hendricks off the ring and end to the fight.

Sadollah appeared to be trying to get up when Miragliotta stopped the fight. However, Miragliotta defended his decision by saying Sadollah was “out of it” and “still looked glassy-eyed and asked me what happened.” Hendricks faced Ricardo Funch on December 12, 2009, at UFC 107. Funch was making his promotional debut. Hendricks got a unanimous decision victory (30–27, 30–27, and 30–25).

The next time Hendricks faced T. J. Grant was on May 8, 2010, at UFC 113. Hendricks won the fight unanimously, extending his UFC record to 3–0. The next time he faced Charlie Brenneman was at UFC 117 on August 7, 2010. Hendricks defeated him via TKO in the second round to win the match. Hendricks fought Rick Story at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale on December 4, 2010. Hendricks lost via unanimous decision.

On June 27, 2018, Hendricks confirmed his retirement from professional MMA competing and his intention to focus on instructing wrestling.
