Hendricks vs. Borrachinha
Hendricks will face Borrachinha at UFC 217.

UFC’s next event at Madison Square Garden continues to take form with the latest addition being Johny Hendricks vs. Paulo Borrachinha.

The bout was orginally announced by Brazilian outlet Combate and then confirmed later by MMA Fighting.

Hendricks has only won two of his last six fights since losing his UFC welterweight title and in his last bout he lost via TKO against Tim Boetsch.

Borrachinha (10-0) has looked unstoppable since entering the UFC and the Brazilian finished Oluwale Bamgbose and Garreth McLellan in his first appearances inside the Octagon. It’s worthing noting that nine of Borrachinha’s ten wins have come in the first round .
