What does it say about some ones wrestling ability when they lose the wrestling exchanges because their opponent is too strong. Hendricks didn't lose to Rick Story because he was freakishly strong, where was Storys freakish strength in the Charlie Brennenman fight? The Martin Kampmann fight? The Damian Maia fight? All of those guys easily out grappled Rick Story, but Hendricks wasn't able to.
I think that speaks volumes about his wrestling ability.
He has outstanding credentials, but as has been proven time and time and time again in the past in this sport, wrestling credentials don't tell the full story. He's a good MMA wrestler, but that's really just about it.
