When I read that I wondered, why aren't the Olympics on this guy's resume? "After graduating from OSU in 2007, Hendricks moved to Las Vegas and signed with Team Takedown"
Edit: the closest I can find to an answer:
"What’s it like watching former teammates Zack Esposito and Coleman Scott have so much success in the wrestling world?
“I love it. When Coleman won the bronze at the Olympics this summer, I was probably as excited as he was because I know what it takes to get to the Olympics and what it takes to get a medal. Even though I didn’t do it, I was still probably as proud as he was.
"What attracted you to MMA?
“It was a tough decision. I lost my senior year match, and prayed about it for a little bit. I was wondering what else there was for me to do. I still wanted to compete, but I didn’t know if I wanted to go to the Olympics or go get a job. My manager asked me if I wanted to be an MMA fighter, and I wasn’t sure. I tried it, but didn’t like it the first time. I came back and prayed about it some more. We flew out to Vegas, and I trained it. I got knocked out and woke up wanting to do it. I guess that was me wanting to overcome adversity. Once I got knocked, I decided I didn’t want that to happen to me again. I made the switch over, and it’s been a good career choice for me so far.”
another good one:
"Georges St-Pierre fought Jon Fitch for 25 brutal minutes.
Martin Kampmann took Carlos Condit to the limit, winning a 15-minute split decision.
Johny Hendricks? He put them both on the mat. Two left hands. Two knockouts.
Total time? 58 seconds.
If Georges St-Pierre isn't a little afraid of Johny Hendricks right now, Georges St-Pierre is a fool."
