Johnny Hendricks is on fire, literallyPosted: October 30, 2013
Walking into the biggest fight of his career, Johnny Hendricks likely hopes to enter the octagon at the peak of his training regimen. One of the greatest advantages an athlete can have entering competition is momentum, being ‘on fire’ at the right time.
While filming the promotional video for the fight last month, spot lamps were placed too close to Hendricks and the fighter suffered second degree burns on his shoulders.
While the injury looks ugly, it was not debilitating as he missed only a short period of training. Nonetheless, it is an inconvenience and a preventable incident.
Something tells me Dana White placed a call to the production team and let them know a piece of his mind.
