Perhaps I should clarify. I'm not writing Hendricks off. Truth be told, I never write any fighter off. Anyone can win on any given night. I just don't give Hendricks much of a chance against GSP. That's not to say I don't give him any chance, period. There is a difference.

I also understand that Johnny has solid wins. I've never said otherwise. But Martin Kampmann, Josh Koscheck, and Jon Fitch are not Georges St. Pierre. And acting as though Johnny is somehow superior to GSP because one knocked out Fitch in 12 seconds while the other dished out a five round beat down just seems asinine to me. By that same logic I could say that GSP is more impressive because he broke Josh Koscheck's face whilst Johnny Hendricks barely left with a victory. It's all quite silly.

At the end of the day, Johnny can talk about how good he is, but he's not stepping in there with Kampmann, Fitch, or Koscheck. He's stepping in there with the greatest WW to have ever lived. He can convince me he's better than GSP by defeating GSP.
