Jake Shields to Johnny Hendricks: 'Quit crying'

Ariel Helwani broke the news that the next challenger to George St-Pierre's Welterweight title was going to be Nick Diaz.

Many fans felt schizophrenic, elated at the prospect of GSP vs. Diaz, but also left feeling that Johnny Hendricks is the legitimate contender, and should not have been stepped over.

Among those most ardently feeling the latter sentiment was Hendricks himself, who is on a five-fight win streak, that includes 3 consecutive victories over top 10 opponents, in the last year alone. Hendricks took his feelings to twitter:

Johny Hendricks @JohnyHendricks
Asking all fans to let Dana White know you don't agree! GSP says he wants Diaz next.

UFC President Dana White did not take long to respond:

Dana White @danawhite
I agree that u deserve it and u will get ur shot

However, Diaz's teammate Jake Shields was not so amenable.

Jake Shields @jakeshieldsajj
@johnyhendricks quit crying. Nicks done more than you. Its cool you beat my old punching bags at AKA but I think you need to fight me next

Shields, who went 2-2 as a Welterweight in the UFC recently moved back to Middleweight, but is apparently contemplating a return to Welter.

Flattr this!
