Despite Johny Hendricks' victory against Matt Brown at UFC 185, UFC President Dana White was not pleased at how the fight played out.

"I'm my worst critic. I think I could've done a lot better. I didn't, but I have a lot to improve and that makes me happy," Hendricks said, according to MMA Fighting

The UFC president agreed with Hendrick's own criticism of his performance during the match.

"I'm happy for Johny. Johny has come off a rough, I guess we'll call it a couple years. But I didn't love the fight. Didn't love it," White told Fox Sports.

Hendricks was able to claim victory during the fight using steady takedowns and "ground and pound" to beat Brown after three rounds of fighting, MMA Fighting explained.

Bleacher Report said the winning fighter was dominant during the whole fight but his punching was not so much seen as the two fighters spent most of the time on the mat. White is a known fan of "fights with a lot of action, particularly on the feet," Bloody Elbow noted, so that's probably why Hendricks failed to impress the UFC president.

In fact, White seemed hesitant when he discussed the possibility of Hendricks getting a shot again at the welterweight title. "We'll see how this thing plays out. A lot of different things happen. I've seen guys say, 'hey, I want to sit out and wait for that belt,' and they don't end up fighting for that belt for two years. So we'll see what happens. It's usually not a really good decision, but sometimes it can work. If it works out, then it will. If not, I'm sure Johny will take the option to fight," he said, as quoted by MMA Fighting.

At UFC 181, Hendricks lost his title to Robbie Lawler by split decision. Bleacher Report said Hendricks wanted to have a rematch but it was not granted as Lawler is set to fight with Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 in July.

Now, after winning against Browns, UFC fans are asking what's next for Hendricks. MMA Fighting speculates that the former welterweight champion will wait on the sidelines and fight whoever will win in the MacDonald vs Lawler match.

But it seems Hendricks already made his choice.

"I would like to fight Robbie Lawler again. I'm not going to lie. He's a tough dude. And you know, he's a very nice guy, which I like. I like fighting nice guys and fighting guys who you don't have a problem getting in the Octagon. But it doesn't matter," Hendricks was quoted by MMA Fighting as saying.
