Johny Hendricks throws out first pitch at Rangers game (Photo)


Just one month after winning the UFC welterweight championship in Dallas with a win over Robbie Lawler, Johny Hendricks made his way out to the mound at Globe Life Park in Arlington to throw out the ceremonial first pitch between the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners.

When Hendricks, who is rehabbing from bicep surgery, threw out the pitch, he was wearing a bulky brace on his right arm.

Below is a photo of Hendricks rocking his Rangers gear with the UFC belt and heavy brace:

Hendricks is targeting a return in the late fall, where he will likely face the winner of a UFC 174 bout between Rory MacDonald vs. Tyron Woodley.
