It seems that we have another addition to the UFC 217 card at Madison Square Garden on November 4th. Johny Hendricks (18-7) will be returning to action to face Brazilian Paulo Borrachinha (10-0) as reported by globo.com. This card is shaping up very well, with Michael Bisping vs Georges St. Pierre fighting for the Middleweight championship expected as the main fight on the card and Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Rose Namajunas targeted for the Strawweight title as well.

Hendricks coming off of a loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 112 is looking to redeem himself. Having a bad weight cut and missing weight by 3 lbs, Hendricks will want to prove to himself and the UFC that he can make weight at Middleweight again. Other than his weight issues he has only had one other bout at Middleweight, in which he faced Hector Lombard and won by unanimous decision. He has a lot to prove in this division even with such a long career at Welterweight and being a former champion at 170lbs.

Tough fight for Hendricks. Paulo is aggressive, bigger and Hendricks may be going to sleep again in this one.
