Default Johny Hendricks set to return in bare knuckle fight against Brennan Ward

Johny Hendricks is back. Esther Lin, MMA Fighting
Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks may be retired from MMA, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with the fight game entirely.

Hendricks and longtime Bellator contender Brennan Ward have agreed to make their bare-knuckle boxing debuts in a 185-pound matchup at the inaugural show of the World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation (WBKFF), which takes place Nov. 9 at the Casper Events Center in Casper, Wyoming. MMA Fighting confirmed the booking Monday following an initial report by FightbookMMA.

Hendricks, 35, retired from mixed martial arts this past June. “Bigg Rigg” spent 10 years competing in the UFC and memorably started his Octagon career with 10-1 run to the welterweight title which included victories over Carlos Condit, Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch, Martin Kampmann, and TJ Grant. In his first title opportunity, Hendricks lost a controversial split decision to Georges St-Pierre, but then rebounded to win the 170-pound strap with a Fight of the Year performance over Robbie Lawler in 2014.

Hendricks (18-8) exited the sport earlier this year following a 1-5 run that culminated with back-to-back knockout losses to Tim Boestch and Paulo Costa at 185 pounds.

He’ll now return to the ring against Ward (14-6), a one-time Bellator title contender whose momentum was recently halted by a two-fight losing skid suffered at the hands of Paul Daley and Fernando Gonzalez. Ward was scheduled to fight Andre Fialho at Bellator 207 in October, but last week pulled out of the fight and announced his retirement from MMA.

In addition to Hendricks vs. Ward, a bare-knuckle rematch between Joey Beltran and Tony Lopez is in the works for WBKFF’s debut event, WBKFF vice president Paul Tyler told MMA Fighting.

Beltran and Lopez collided in a frenetic war of attrition this past June at the debut show of Bare Knuckle FC, which MMA Fighting was able to cover behind-the-scenes.

This bare knuckle thing is getting some interesting people involved in it. Must be paying cats nicely enough to get guys re-considering retirement so quick.

Bare knuckle boxing? WTF is this, 1850? Didn't boxing add gloves because of broken hands and fewer punches being thrown because of the risk of broken hands. Reminds me of the early UFC days, when guys were going into the cage with bare hands and bowing out of tournaments from broken fists or palms. But hey, if they just have one champion and not 4 f****n belts, then hopefully it catches on and wakes up boxing, with all its greed and corruption.

Some fans are already souring to the bare knuckle event after seeing Krazy Horse being dropped twice by his hands breaking, but it could be about to turn Bec Rawlings into a global star. Krazy world

I expect 70% Hendricks to make easy work of Brennan Ward.

It was Ubereem & TRT-Vitor esque. This guy legit shut down GSP's whole game and arguably beat him.
