02:15 PM ET 02.08 | Johny Hendricks isn't a fan of Georges St-Pierre's matchmaking, and called him an idiot for his belief that Nick Diaz is the true No. 1 contender. "You don't get to decide. He's not a judge. He's not a judge. He's a fighter. He's paid to fight and he's paid to fight me. The fact that he was able to ask and get this request [to fight Diaz], the only thing this is, is it gives me more drive," Hendricks said.

The man has a point though. Absolutely NO reason why Diaz should be able to jump into a title shot immediately upon returning from a suspension. The only reason GSP wants to fight Diaz is because he doesn't like him, not because Diaz is the top contender. That's perfectly OK, I think the champ SHOULD get some say in who he fights but call it what it is; a vendetta. To say otherwise in silly and disingenuous.

Seems like he's talking about Anderson Silva as well.

Excuse me Johny who?? Exactly, nobody that isn't a hard core MMA fan knows who this joker is. Its all about the money folks and the longer this guy gets to spew his vitrol the better luck they will have in making some PPV buys off of it. Right now he is a nobody and the buys of GSP fighting a "nobody" would be reflected right now.

I had Hendricks losing to Koscheck, so he's not the #2 contender in my book either.
