Hendricks: "My jiu-jitsu is better than my hands"
ďThatís why I laugh when people say Ďweíve figured out your left hand.í My boxing isnít my strong point. Itís something Iíve only been doing for five years; Iíve only been striking for five years. Iíve done wrestling my whole entire life,Ē Hendricks told MMAWeekly Radio. ďSo if anybodyís going to say anything, wrestling is my strong point. I feel my jiu-jitsu is better than my hands.Ē
Wrestling is a weapon that St-Pierre has established very well over the last several years, but former NCAA champion Hendricks isnít backing down from a grappling match with the Canadian icon.
ďI can only get better. Look at how much better I got in just three months of being able to focus on training. Iím still developing as a fighter; Iíve only had 14 fights in my career. I think once I hit 20 fights thatís where Iím going to be at my peak,Ē said Hendricks.
ďAlways improving, thatís the No. 1 goal of mine.Ē
