Johny Hendricks begins training at Jackson-Winkeljohn academy ahead of UFC 217

Former UFC champ Johny Hendricks is looking for a fresh start with a new team.

Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks is changing training camps just four weeks out from arguably one of the biggest fights of his career.

Hendricks revealed over the weekend that he’s leaving Texas to begin training at the famed Jackson-Winkeljohn academy in New Mexico, which is the home to several top fighters including Jon Jones, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Carlos Condit and many more.

Hendricks makes his return to action on Nov. 4 at UFC 217 where he’ll take on Paulo Borrachinha in a middleweight bout on the card. Borrachinha is 10-0 as a professional with two knockouts thus far in his UFC career.

Meanwhile, Hendricks enters the fight at a crossroads in his career.

The former champion suffered through a three-fight losing streak at welterweight while also struggling to make weight on two different occasions before making the move to 185 pounds.

While Hendricks found success in his middleweight debut, he then failed to make weight for his next fight and then suffered a TKO loss to Tim Boetsch.

Now Hendricks will look to revamp his training by working under coaches such as Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn in hopes of producing a better result when he returns to action in November.
