Dana White: Johny Hendricks just lost a huge opportunity, considers him a middleweight now

Following the UFC 192 Weigh-Ins, UFC President Dana White appeared on FOX Sports 1 to give a timeline in how the situation with Hendricks went down.

“They called me last night and said he was in a lot of pain,” White told Megan Olivi of FOX Sports. “He laid down and he was better when he laid down and he felt less pain. I said take him to the hospital. They didn’t want to take him to the hospital because he was dehydrated and they would give him an IV. 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. This was a big one.”
