This will be a step up in competition for Story (Unless you count his first fight in the UFC with Hathaway) but he definately deserves it. I hope Hendricks doesn't take him lightly. If both fighters come in at their best, this could be one of the better fights in recent history. I just wonder if Story can hold out against Hendricks' takedowns.

Wow, two powerhouses that throw heavy leather with powerful wrestling. Gotta love this match up!

Going with hendricks I don't know how but I feel like he's more accomplished everywhere the fight goes atleast technique wise but Story probably has that raw strength advantage so who knows.
