I believe this statement becauseI personally don't think his boxing technique wise is all that good he just has absolute dynamite in his hands.

He's also one of the most decorated collegiate wrestlers in MMA.You don't win national championships at OK State for nothing.If Hendricks actually trains his wrestling i think it'll be interesting with GSP.Obviously most fighters don't like being on their backs and GSP took some lumps on his from Condit now if Hendricks with his power and wrestling background unlike Condit gets GSP on his back...Could be a world of shit Mr.GSP.


But kinda weak to debate now......Hendricks will probably have another fight due to super fights

I think GSP can beat Hendricks with his jab and wont need to take it to the ground....



Maybe, but that seems like an approach that would be way too much like play with fire. I wouldn't want to give Hendricks a full 25 minutes to try and take my head off. I'd try to mix it up and keep him guessing to make him hesitate to pull the trigger. 25 minutes is a long time to try and avoid that ridiculous kind of power.



This.

GSP isn't the kind of guy who tries to beat his opponents at their strength. He plays to their weakness. Johny's strength is his stand up so we can expect GSP to avoid that. That's the whole point of this statement, to get in GSP's head and make him think a grappling centered gameplan is equally dangerous.

He trained bjj with Marc Laimon for a while and Robert Drysdale, I remember watching something a long time ago and his bjj is surprisingly good.



Surprisingly good I believe, better than his stand up I don't buy.

His stand up has the potential to end a fight in an instant. I doubt his jiujitsu has the same sort of dynamism.

His very close and somewhat debatable decision win over Kos, his decision win against Pierce and his decision loss against Story tells me that GSP is going to wrestlefuck him at will.




I believe this too....GSP will have a significant reach and after a few Jabs...Hendricks will go down...

Even thoug he beat Fitch I think Fitch would beat Hendricks the next five times in a row...

Ok he has a left hand...need way more than that for GSP....

I, in fact, have both a left AND a right hand. I also have the corresponding number of feet.

I should be able to defeat him easily.

Well you need more than a left. So maybe 1 extra limb covers the need. The rest are just want desires?

Hendricks looks like he battles nerves at times, I think a title fight with GSP would be too much for him the first time around. That is however pure TNT in that left hand, but GSP probably never lets him stand for more than one swing.
