Kampmann's defense is some of the worst in MMA.

A power strikerisn't going to beat GSP in my opinion, not unless they are technical on top of it. Sure Hendricks can send anyone in that division to the mat. But when GSP has a whole training camp to gameplan around a powerful left hand, I'm sure he can and will avoid it. Hendricks could stuff a TD, but not many.

Hey maybe it happens. Would be awesome. It is basically a different version of the Kos fight. Kos is the better wrestler but Hendricks has more 1 punch power. But they were both non-technical, cocked hand, wrestlers. Difference is GSP will probably have an easier time getting Hendricks down and gassing him before Hendricks can display any hand power.
Cant say I disagree with any of this.

If Hendricks is relying on only landing the left hand then i can see it being a very long night for him if he fights GSP.
