First, the bad news - Lil Johny Hendricks does not make an encore appearance on episode two of UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Hendricks. The good news is that there's still plenty of behind the scenes footage of both the champion and challenger's training camps.
UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre defends his title against Johny Hendricks Nov. 16 at UFC 167. If you missed the first episode, click here.
Episode two starts of with St. Pierre and his head coach Firas Zihabi attempting to dispel the retirement rumors that they essentially started themselves. "I just bought an Octagon," St. Pierre attests.
"If I wanted to retire I wouldn't have invested that type of money. I love my every day routine."
In this episode of UFC Primetime, we also get a look at the Hendricks household and see the husband and father that also inhabits the KO artist body of Johny Hendricks. One of the more interesting parts of episode two for us was the time spent with St. Pierre's head coach Zihabi.
Up to this point, not much has been made known about the young trainer other than the great success of his fighters. In this episode we learn how and why Zihabi made the transition from promising amateur Muay Thai fighter to full time coach.
All this plus a glimpse of St. Pierre's boxing training and Hendricks' strength and conditioning regimen and much more in the video above. One more episode to go and then, of course, the main event title clash on Nov. 16 at UFC 167.
