"I'm not going to fight unless it's for a belt. Nothing else matters but the belt. My last three fights were guys in the top five, and I finished two of those three fights. I stated my claim. My stock's really high right now, and the only thing left is to get a shot at that belt.
"He's trying to keep money from my kids. If I win that belt and take it from him, my life changes. He's trying to not give me the fair shot. That's crazy to me to think this guy is trying to control my future. That makes me want to win that much even more.
"Here is a guy is trying to pull out a curveball saying, 'We really don't think we can win with this guy, but we think we can beat Nick Diaz.' That's what it sounds like to me.
"I think I'm going to be fighting GSP in six months - April or May. I want GSP, and nothing else matters. Nobody else is in the equation in my mind. But hypothetically, as long as it takes (to get GSP is how long I'll wait). You only get so many opportunities to fight at the top level and stay at the top level.
"I can't keep fighting and being the No. 1 contender for years. There has to be a time to take a stand, and I feel like now is that time."
After knocking out Martin Kampman at UFC 154, it's easy to see why Hendricks has become frustrated. Somewhere between his last fight and now, he has become almost lost in the shuffle with talks of an Anderson Silva-GSP super-fight and now a GSP-Diaz fight.
While Claiming GSP is ducking him may be a reach, Hendricks bold comments may prove to help him, as not only will it get his name out there, but it could also strike a nerve within the mind of St. Pierre.
