I agree that Hendricks is still learning to apply his wrestling to MMA, but that doesn't mean he can't get up when GSP puts him down. I think he can.
I was just proving a point that outstanding wrestling credentials don't necessarily translate into godlike wrestling ability inside the MMA spectrum (which is what you were originally implying).

GSP may not have faced some one with Hendricks' highly touted wrestling accolades, but he has faced more accomplished MMA wrestlers like Koscheck and Fitch.

I'd definitely be interested in the fight, but I don't hold much hope in Hendricks being able to stuff the majority of Georges take downs.
