Obviously, but talking shit has now become part of the game. Everyone has to do it or they risk getting passed up.

Doesn't matter, the David Beckham of MMA will rip them both a new one.

Ellenberger is more of a one punch KO power puncher then Hendricks. a bit more technical too.

If Hendricks is smart, he use his wrestling to win.

Jon Fitch - Was coming off of an 11 month injury.
Josh Koscheck - Hendricks did okay, but wasn't too impressive.
Martin Kampmann - Has pulled off his last two wins after getting hurt badly. Kind of lucky to have survived them.

I mean, definently enough to make calls for a title shoty, but one of the most impressive 3 fight win streaks ever? Not imo.
Fitch still would have lost to Hendrick and that 11 month layoff didn't factor at all in him having shit defense.

Well, its easy enough to pick holes in hindsight. But it would still make 3 consecutive victories over top 5 fighters in a division. How often does that happen?

I would bet any amount of money that GSP takes this...haha. Kampmann isn't cerebral enough to take on the greatest MMA fighter strategist. Well rounded, but simply not championship caliber.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

GSP would tool Kampmann worse than he did Fitch and Kos.

Same with Hendricks. GSP's only challenge at WW right now is Carlos.

Kampmann sucks at gameplanning but that doesn't change the fact that he is very dangerous off his back and is a better striker than Georges. I've always seen Martin as a darkhorse for the WW belt, his skills are very underrated.

Kampmann is a great fighter, and if it hadn't been for GSP I'm sure he would've been champion at some point.

Sadly for Kampmann, GSP does exist.

Jake Ellenberger has more KO power than Johnny Hendricks. Kampmann took Bergers best and then came back to KO him in the second round.

I'm tired of these wrestle-boxers plaguing the WW division. Hendricks, Ellenberger, Koscheck, Fitch, the bloody lot of em. They're all basically the same prototype fighter with little differences here and there.

Kampmann is an elite WW fighter and does pose threats to GSP in every area. Trouble is, he isn't outstanding in any given area, he doesn't overly excel in one particular aspect so he's likely never to become champion, but he's a damn bigger threat to GSP than the boring wrestle-boxers of the division.

Kampmann better cool it on taking some of this power shots to the head if he wants to continue his run at the belt. The dude has a big heart and a strong chin... but as many of our old school favorites have taught us, the chin doesn't last forever.

After getting beat on by Alves and Ellenberger... he might want to actually find a way to avoid Hendricks big left hand or his time might finally be up.

There are a lot of people who have had the power to KO GSP... but none of them have been able to get the job done. After watching Kampmann's performance against Shields (and I thought Kampmann won) he shows his biggest weakness is strategy and that's not a good place to be against GSP.
