The f*** are you talking about Daley almost KO`d Diaz... You can always tell when someone hasn`t actually watched a fight.

You`re just glad Hendricks isn`t getting a shot at GSP because you`re worried Hendricks is going to one punch him.

KO wins over Fitch and Kampmann and a decision win over Kos is an unimpeachable resume and makes Hendricks the most deserving guy since Fitch to get a shot at the title.

I love Diaz, but he`s coming off a loss.

This is the kind of shit you UFC-only guys used to give PRIDE shit for.

Or maybe Hendricks understands that on any given night anyone can lose and once you've earned your shot like he has, every fight in between now and the title shot is a chance to get upset (like he did to Fitch) and lose your place.

Hendricks should just pull a Condit and sit out for a year until he gets his shot. Now that would be brave. /sarcasm.

Hendricks rips off 5 straight wins, beating 3 top 5 guys in a row knocking out 2, gets passed up by someone coming off a loss, and he has to keep his mouth shut? No, I completely disagree. He absolutely has every single right to let out all his anger at this point. As a matter of fact, I expected him to go on this rant. History has shown that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So if you really think about it, he's playing the game now. What is he supposed to just keep quiet and beat people while constantly getting passed up for title shots?

Anybody that he fights that is not the champion is a step down in competition at this point. The smartest thing for him to do is to wait it out until after GSP and Nick fight. It's not about lack of confidence that he won't win another fight, its about feeling that he has the right to not take any other fights until it's for the belt. No matter how confident someone is, anything can happen at any given fight. Okay so if he doesn't win, maybe he's not the rightful challenger to the belt. But what if he's training for this next opponent, injures himself and has to sit out for another 4 months? What if when the fight happens, his opponent pokes him in the eye, the ref doesn't see it, and it's declared a KO loss? What if he's completely dominating the fight, eats a vicious elbow right above his eye, and the fight gets called? Maybe those setbacks aren't "true" loses, but they still back him up another, what, 2 years(?).

I completely understand how he's feeling right now, and hope he eventually get the title shot after GSP/Nick.
THIS.................

Don't worry Hendricks, GSP isn't scared of you.

One he finishes business with Diaz, he will dominate you as well.

Hendricks is just doing what Nick Diaz did and what everyone else seems to be doing to get a Title Shot, and thats try to talk your way into it. So why is Johny getting painted badly when Nick did the same thing but even worse? Let him try what seems to be working.

Its another instance of Dana playing favourites. If he doesent like you, he will just tell you to shut up and sit down, and work your way up if you speak out. If he likes you, he will make it instantly and talk about how an "intriguing" fight its going to be, even if it looks one sided on paper skill level wise. I dont want to hear about Dana talking crap about mismatches in other Organizations ever again. When the ones isint solely left to Joe Silva and Dana has his grubby hands on it, are exactly that. Certain people have been in privileged positions because Dana simply liked them, not because they "paid their dues".

MMA is a Sport, UFC is Sports Entertainment and Dana White is Vince McMahon. It tries to follow the Sport Model, but it really isint. Just like how the WWE is "sport" because it has Wrestling in it.
