I don't remember anyone being able to hold Hendricks down. He might be taken down by GSP but he should be able to get back up better then anyone. Story is freakishly strong, I don't GSP has the same kind of strength.

What does it say about some ones wrestling ability when they lose the wrestling exchanges because their opponent is too strong. Hendricks didn't lose to Rick Story because he was freakishly strong, where was Storys freakish strength in the Charlie Brennenman fight? The Martin Kampmann fight? The Damian Maia fight? All of those guys easily out grappled Rick Story, but Hendricks wasn't able to.

I think that speaks volumes about his wrestling ability.

He has outstanding credentials, but as has been proven time and time and time again in the past in this sport, wrestling credentials don't tell the full story. He's a good MMA wrestler, but that's really just about it.

If hendricks connects one time on GSP its game over. All of you how are riding that GSP need to realize that one punch/kick is all you need and condit proved that on Saturday. He just couldn't finish.

I don't think GSP would give Hendricks the chance to do that. He is gonna take Hendricks down fast. We have yet to see Hendricks's bottom game, and frankly I don't think Hendricks would pose any problems off his back.

It would be interesting to see whether Hendricks could fend off the takedown though. IMO? No.

Story is an up and down fighter. Just look at his record, it's impossible to make sense of how he can lose to some guys and defeat others. That's the problem with MMAth and saying since he did this to him and they did this to him then they will do this to him. I just doesn't work that way. I agree that Hendricks is still learning to apply his wrestling to MMA, but that doesn't mean he can't get up when GSP puts him down. I think he can.

Just wondering what you base that on. GSP's top control is phenomenal, and Hendricks hasn't really showed us how good his bottom game is. If Condit couldn't get off his back, I don't think Hendricks will.

I was just proving a point that outstanding wrestling credentials don't necessarily translate into godlike wrestling ability inside the MMA spectrum (which is what you were originally implying).

GSP may not have faced some one with Hendricks' highly touted wrestling accolades, but he has faced more accomplished MMA wrestlers like Koscheck and Fitch.

I'd definitely be interested in the fight, but I don't hold much hope in Hendricks being able to stuff the majority of Georges take downs.

Even with the same skillset a stronger shorter guy is going to get up much easier than a taller weaker guy. Comparing Condit and Hendricks is ridiculous, a tall lanky unorthodox striker compared to a short stocky wrestler. Sure GSP probably would keep him down, but Hendricks would have an advantage over everyone else in that it will be much harder to control someone with shorter stronger limbs. Even Serra was able to get off his back, he just didn't have the wrestling to be able to handle the scrambles and lost position every time.
