All i saw from Hendricks...

1. he can throw haymakers
2. he knows how to defend a sub
3. he can get takedowns

Sounds alot like Kos before all his hype faded.

Awesome fight. Very close. I'm glad I didn't bet on it. I had condit by a hair in the third but it could have gone either way.

It wasnt until round 3 that he definitively lost the fight.



I also fail to see how GSP will take Hendricks apart considering how much trouble Condit had with his blitzes? You telling me GSP is better equipped to deal with that than Condit? GSP got blitzed by Matt Serra ffs.

I'm interested to see mostly if GSP can take Hendricks down consistently....

Because he's definitely not going to pick him apart on the feet...Hendricks is too aggressive for that...GSP probably will need to counter wrestle.
And Silva was submitted by some nobody. You can't always look to the past as though fighters can't evolve. GSP faced a much more violent blitz from Condit and survived.

That said, I don't think GSP will 'destroy' Henricks, nor do I think he should stand and trade with him. GSP needs to wrestle and make it an ugly, 'boring' fight. And I think if he can take Johny down and keep him there, Hendricks will wilt.

Incredible fight, very close but I think Johny deserved the nod.
Because I never saw him actually get into prolonged striking battles with high level strikers. He was just landing haymakers on dudes. A really underappreciated part of Hendricks' fight tonight was how he used his lead hand to parry a lot of Condit's straight punches. His defense was excellent when not getting into wild exchanges...and because of his power and decent chin he favours himself in that type of firefight...and I sure as hell do against a guy like GSP.


This just makes me think the GSP fight will be far more interesting than I thought.

You can always turn being miserable around, not criticizing, just saying life is good if you see the silver lining in everything. To me it was a fantastic fight despite what happened, atleast it was a fight and we got to see both guys push back.

Agreed, it will be ...

GSP takedowns > Hendricks
GSP G&P > Hendricks
GSP control > Hendricks

SO yeah... it will be hella ugly and Hendricks face will get turned to mush by elbows.

Silva still has the same weaknesses he had then. He's just better at it.

And Condit didn't blitz Hendricks at all...he tactically struck with him...probably to a detriment and landed a kick and then got tied up on the botched finish.

I'm talking about Hendricks rushing forward and throwing power and GSP may or may not have the ability to consistently take Hendricks down. Hendricks isn't an easy guy to outwrestle....and he's no Mark Munoz where his NCAA accolades are just seemingly for show.

He was submitted by two nobodies actually. Hendricks needs to work on his cardio if he plans on going five rounds with GSP!

Well, his win over Pierce was only a SD and he barely got the nod against Koscheck. To me this fight did show something I hadn't seen from Hendricks before though, I honestly thought Condit would pick up the win by being better all around(except wrestling). Hendrick's showed his hunger tonight and lifted his game a notch to make sure he got the win. He knew what it would take and put his consciousness on the line by rushing forward and bringing it to a very dangerous opponent.
