Hendricks: "My jiu-jitsu is better than my hands"

Quote:
ďThatís why I laugh when people say Ďweíve figured out your left hand.í My boxing isnít my strong point. Itís something Iíve only been doing for five years; Iíve only been striking for five years. Iíve done wrestling my whole entire life,Ē Hendricks told MMAWeekly Radio. ďSo if anybodyís going to say anything, wrestling is my strong point. I feel my jiu-jitsu is better than my hands.Ē

Wrestling is a weapon that St-Pierre has established very well over the last several years, but former NCAA champion Hendricks isnít backing down from a grappling match with the Canadian icon.

ďI can only get better. Look at how much better I got in just three months of being able to focus on training. Iím still developing as a fighter; Iíve only had 14 fights in my career. I think once I hit 20 fights thatís where Iím going to be at my peak,Ē said Hendricks.

ďAlways improving, thatís the No. 1 goal of mine.Ē

Talk, talk, talk. We'll see how 'great' he is once he steps in there with the best.

Come to think of it not many fighters can KO people with one shot consistently.

Mirko without a doubt was the deadliest. I mean once it landed that was it. Done.
Hendo
Rampage
Fedor
Edson Barboza probably has one of the sweetest KOs ever. Too bad it was against Terry Etim cuz he's a dope fighter.

If you look it up in the pre-fight hype decoder pages in Chael Sonnen's book, you'll see what he really means.

Because that's precisely what I said

Johnny has beaten some good guys. Unfortunately, he hasn't beaten anyone who GSP hasn't made look like a complete scrub. Telling me that his wrestling is better, his JJ is wicked slick, and all of that good stuff isn't going to sway me or the oddsmakers. If Johnny feels confidently about his abilities, then Johnny can go in and try to do what Johnny does. We know what's he's capable of. We know what he can do. So just go out and do it, if you can. All of this talk comes off as though he's trying to convince himself more than anyone else.

Chael Sonnen is different. With Sonnen, it's an art form. If you can't recreate what that man can do, don't even bother with the trash talk.

Chael Sonnen doesnt do anything anyone hasn't heard before unless you watched ballet dancing and golf before wondering into MMA.
