I think the fight is built on the fact that GSP called him out. Nick is a good fighter that's just about beat'n everyone in the who's who of welterweights. But if GSP didn't ask for this, I don't think it would be happening. If GSP called out Hendricks, he'd be fighting Hendricks. Hendricks also has an impressive record, but it's not perfect either.
Diaz and Hendricks were the two premier WW choices. Nothing wrong with GSP's choice.
