In his MMA debut, Cory submitted Thomas Hoeper
in the second round. He also tapped out Derek Luna Harris via rear naked choke in the first round. At WSOF 22, Hendricks submitted Julio Hinojosa in round one.In 2016 Cory was selected to be a part of TUF 23. To get into the house, he defeated Marcel Fortuna via unanimous decision and was the fourth male selection of team Claudia. In episode two Cory faced Khail Rountree and submitted him via rear naked choke in round one.
