When Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner took on the Reebok Spartan Race in Texas, they had no idea how touch the course would be!  Varner had already conquered a Spartan Race course in Las Vegas earlier in the year, but now he had some stiff competition from Hendricks.  FoxSports.com captured the action of the two athletes in action as they navigated the course and ultimately finished the challenge.

With six wins in the Octagon under his belt and musings that he should have a long overdue shot at the Welterweight championship over Georges St. Pierre, Hendricks, “Big Rigg” took on the challenge with a gusto. “This is a training opportunity.” says Hendricks of his taking on the course.

Check out the video from FoxSports.com to see who came out on top when Varner and Hendricks went head to head in the Texas heat.
