The real problem for him is that he probably will break it in the GSP fight. He throws too many punches full blast and will most likely repeat the result. But his willingness to throw even a broken hand is a good indicator that it shouldn't matter.

I think he's going to get jabbed to death in the most boring fight of GSP's carreer, doesn't take away from Hendricks earning his title shot.

The real irony is had Condit defended his interim title against Hendricks in a five round fight he wins he doesn't have to fight him in a three round bout and he gets to face off against a different contender.

If Condit who has a longer reach and is taller than GSP couldn't consistently land jabs on Hendricks what makes you think GSP will...secondly Hendricks is a southpaw and they are much harder to jab than orthodox fighters...which is why Condit had almost no success with his jab tonight.

Like I said Hendricks has underappreciated defense and his use of parries is rather advanced.

It wasn't really until the end of the fight where Condit was able to sneak some right hands in.

Sounds alot like Kos before all his hype faded.
Hendricks is quite similar to Koscheck except I would rank his striking as much more dangerous and consider him to be more hungry and willing to take risks.

He will no doubt take the pressure to GSP and very few fighters do that. GSP is a great fighter but his mental strength and chin are not the best and it is possible that Hendricks might be able to take advantage of that.

If Hendricks can't end it early GSP likely picks him apart though.

Did Condit throw a jab during that fight? Also GSP has the one thing Condit doesn't have...wrestling.

Of course he threw a jab. He threw one to start almost every combination.

I like how Hendricks is so aggressive when he fights. In that first round, he was just going right for it and didn't give Condit any room to work his game plan. Hendricks believes in his power and durability. In the opening round when he just blitzed Condit, and then just threw him to the ground, it sort of sent a message in my opinion.

Hendricks hurt his hand and got a little tired. People can't over think that third round too much.

If he can stuff St. Pierre's take downs, it should make for an interesting fight.

Those seemed more like feints to me, you saw tonight the precision of GSP's jabs and the damage they can do.

People also seem to overlook the fact that Hendricks took this fight on short notice.

That's a big deal.

If you were to compile the record of guys who took fights on short notice..I'd wager a large amount it wouldn't be very good.

Forgot about that actually. Eh, haters gonna hate. In that first round, Hendricks smashed Condit and he won the decision with a hurt hand and after taking the fight on short notice. He deserves nothing but respect and I hope he wins the title. He just needs to stay aggressive and not become completely tentative like most of St. Pierre's opponents. They seem defeated before the fight is even over just because they're worried about the take down.
