He may have once stood at the top of the welterweight division, but former champ Johny Hendricks is on the worst kind of skid right now – and it’s made all the more sad by his repeated failures at making weight.

Case in point: the dude couldn’t make 171 pounds at today’s UFC 207 weigh-ins.

Sigh.

Here’s ESPN:

A nightmare year continued for former UFC champion Johny Hendricks on Thursday, as he failed to make weight for his welterweight bout against Neil Magny at UFC 207.

Hendricks (17-5) weighed-in at 173.5 pounds during the official weigh-in, 2.5 pounds over the limit. As long as Magny (18-5) agrees, Hendricks will forfeit 20 percent of his purse and the fight will go on. Magny made weight at 171 pounds.
