    MONTREAL — Georges St. Pierre famously dropped to his knees five years ago in the octagon and begged for a shot at the welterweight title. While Johny Hendricks didn’t go quite that far at the Bell Centre after the UFC 154 co-main event Saturday night, the desperation felt the same. Hendricks’ voice nearly cracked as he repeated, “please,” four times in his request for a championship bout against St. Pierre after knocking out Martin Kampmann 46 seconds into their meeting.
