Hendricks at least will have 5 rounds to land that shot to KO GSP; in that time he'll get tired and GSP will work to take the power out of his punches.
This fight will just like every other GSP fight in the past five years with the same result.
GSP fights the smart fight... and having a greater reach == stay on the outside and wait for stoopid mistakes made by your opponent.
When Hendricks attempt to close the distance with his bombs, he will get dropped on his back and GSP will turn his face to mush... GSP aint going to try anything snazzy, like trying for a sub or something cause Hendricks aint gonna let him...
He will prolly stay in half/full guard, use his extra long reach to drop elbows or just G&P... end round, rinse, repeat
YET.. even tho GSP is THIS predicable, he still is the champ, go figure
