105.3 THE FAN — UFC Welterweight Champion Johny Hendricks joined New School on Thursday morning to discuss his title win over Robbie Lawler in Dallas at UFC 171.
The Oklahoma State graduate won a unanimous decision, though the fight ultimately came down to the fifth and final round.
“Pretty much, fifth round — I knew that I had to win it. The third and fourth round did not go like I wanted them to,” said Hendricks. “I thought that the fight might have been over before then. Certain circumstances happened, and I wasn’t able to close on the deal. He caught me with a punch…it was a very good punch. I had to play catch up.”
