With this event nearing close I'm really looking forward to all three welterweight match ups on the card. This one is a very tough fight to pick a winner. I'm going with Hendricks, first off because I hope he wins I think it would be very exciting to see him get a shot at the belt with his crushing power. Also It is clear that he is the stronger of the two and I think he'll just over power Condit controlling the grappling aspect of the fight and landing the harder and the more siginificant strikes. I wouldn't be surprised to see him be the first person to stop Condit as Hendricks is one of those guys who can potentially knock out anyone. If Condit is to win I think he'll have to out point Hendricks its unlikely in my opinion that Condit gets the finish but if he does it'll be damn impressive.

If Condit comes to fight, I have to pick Hendricks to wobble him at some point. The special thing about Hendricks is the distance he can cover and speed in which he does it. He doesn't need much of a jab or movement to set that thing up, he just leaps in and lands it perfectly.

And Condit should want to fight, because it's three rounds and the tappy-kick-run-back-endurance-test gameplan is much less forgivable in a shorter fight. Greg will be telling him right now, 'GO GET SOME FANS CARLOS!!!'

IMO, while his KO's have been impressive, Hendricks is still basically a wrestle-puncher with power, and Condit is miles above him in his MMA development.

Hendricks also has T-rex arms for a WW @ 69"; he's also fairly short @ 5' 9". Condit will tower over him @ 6'2" and have a 7" reach advantage.

Unless Carlos fights like a deer-in-the-headlights idiot, he should win a decision by out-pointing Johnny on the feet with his more versaile striking, and being too agile/mobile in general.

Hendricks hype-train going off the tracks.

This is going to show where Hendricks is in the division, can he cover the distance and hit flush and take Condit down? I doubt it but we'll see.

I think Carlos comes in and outpoints him, winning 29/28. Carlos is much too rounded and much more complete than Johnny.

Hendricks will probably have a difficult time in the first trying to time Condit, in the second he will come on and grapple him up against the cage and land a few uppercuts and take him down or what not

Tough fight to call.

I love Condit but his takdedown defense is horrid. Even though he has a good chin, he's also prone to getting hit. However, I think the only edges that Hendricks has in this fight are power and wrestling. Condit has better technical striking and better jiu jitsu, and I haven't see Hendricks on the ground long enough to gauge his top control. His fight with Rick Story didn't show too much promise in that realm, although Story isn't a bad wrestler himself.

My prediction is that Hendricks will score with one or two left hands in the fight that won't put Condit away but may hurt him. He'll factor in some wrestling to earn points because the longer Condit manages to control the distance, the worse it gets for Hendricks.

My prediction is that Hendricks will score with one or two right hands in the fight that won't put Condit away but may hurt him. He'll factor in some wrestling to earn points because the longer Condit manages to control the distance, the worse it gets for Hendricks.

You mean left's right?

I see this fight a lot like ellenberger Condit. Hendricks hurts him early can't get the finish but gets close. Second is close, Hendricks with a take down and some control, Condit get up but does no damage and the third is uneventful but goes to Condit via movement and a few nice combos.

Hendricks wins a decision, shit flipping commences even though Condit will never have come close to actually finishing the fight. Someone says Jackson ruined Carlos other says it's because you can't finish everyone. Everyone else is annoyed.
Apply same rules in Condit gets the decision.

Normally I'd pick Condit. Problem is he just got handled by GSP and that's often the beginning of a slump going by the history of his past opponents.
