Looking back at the most controversial match in UFC history (Part 2)

From the scoreboard to the match result, even President Dana White was amazed at the ring. Not to mention the loser Hendricks, who thought he had won, knelt to the floor in disappointment.

In terms of stance, Johny Hendricks did a good job at damaging the opponent. He had more accurate attacks (142 hits compared to 125 attacks by GSP). He is only one successful drop from the champion (2/4 vs. 3/6 from GSP).

After the press conference, Dana White expressed frustration with the judges’ transcripts. He even asked the governor of Nevada to come in to check the transparency of the Sports Commission (NSAC) in this match.

Doubt after the game

2013 was also just before the time of USADA. This is the US Anti-Doping Commission participated in the process of “purifying” UFC with a series of boxers who were later banned. At the end of the match, GSP actively offered to pay for voluntary banned substance testing by VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association). However, Hendricks declined the request.

Since the USADA took over the UFC banned substance inspection with strict weight-cutting and testing laws, audiences have witnessed a brazen Hendricks with consecutive losses and overweight. This unusual performance of Hendricks further makes the audience believe that the American puncher has used unauthorized additives in the past.

However, the lack of concrete evidence at the time of the rooftop with George St Pierre made the controversy impossible to come to an end.

It has been 7 years since the controversial result, St-Pierre returned to the title streak against Michael Bisping in 2017. Meanwhile, the slumping performance caused Johny Hendricks to lose his position. He only had Achievements 3 wins – 6 losses after the match in the past.

It can be said that in terms of long-distance, George St Pierre is still a more successful man. However, when talking about 25 minutes on the stage at UFC 167, Johny Hendricks created a match that caused the most public opinion in history.
