Bold statement from the Collegiate wrestler turned knockout machine. UFC 154 marked Johny Hendricks’ fifth straight victory in the octagon, with three by way of knockout. Hendricks has now placed himself in the number one spot for a title shot, which he feels he is more than ready for.

“That’s why I laugh when people say ‘we’ve figured out your left hand.’ My boxing isn’t my strong point. It’s something I’ve only been doing for five years; I’ve only been striking for five years. I’ve done wrestling my whole entire life,” Hendricks told MMAWeekly Radio. “So if anybody’s going to say anything, wrestling is my strong point. I feel my jiu-jitsu is better than my hands.”

Better hope so, because GSP puts people on their backs once in a while.

the thing about a guy like hendricks is, he's got so much power and very few people in the world of MMA will ever out wrestle and control him, he'll always be dangerous to everybody as long as he retains that power. i dont see him KO'ing GSP if/when they fight, but GSP has to respect that wild left hand.

He's little Hendo. Good to know the H Bomb will live on once Dan retires.

He's little Hendo....



No. Not until he wins belts in two weight classes.... Though not necessarily simultaneously, that's just an unreasonable standard.

True word. He will never be the real deal Hendo, but he does pack one hell of a punch.

I call bull shit.

People say stuff like this because they want to be SEEN as multidimensional. If his jiu jitsu was that good we would see it more.

He is trying to psych out his opponents: "Shit, if I can't stand with this guy and I can't take him down, what am I going to do?"

It won't work with GSP. His only chance in that fight would be a one-hitter-quitter.

If Johny MMA tells me his Jiu-Jitsu is better than his boxing, I believe him....

If Johny MMA tells me he will finish GSP by the end of the countdown show, I believe him...

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.

I'll believe it when I see it Johny. Like someone said earlier, we'll find out once GSP puts him on his back.

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.

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.
