It's not about Hendricks being a threat..they know they can gameplan him like Koscheck..use the reach advantage work the jab..bust him up, use the speed advantage..then takedown...wrestlers hate being on their backs.
Despite what GSP say about the $$....its always about the money (Silva fight aside)..Diaz is the big pay-day at WW..they will draw 700-900k PPV buys..
Hendricks isn't a known commodity..so for the casual fan its meh...I'll save my pennies for the Silva or Diaz fight...and u get 600k PPV buys,
Yep, it's true. Very high risk against Hendricks...but he's virtually an unknown quantity. Everyone knows his power, but we havn't seen his wrestling which is supposed to be top notch. If GSP can't take em down then it'll be settled on the feet and that poses a risk for someone who does not possess KO power.
Very curious as to what's going to happen with Rory once he gets his title shot.
