Hendricks was wary of charging in against Kos(and Pierce), knowing they could net the takedown if he charged in.

Hendricks won't be wary of charging Kampmann or Condit. He knows they won't go for takedowns.

GSP landed a lot of shots against Condit, Hendricks reach is 7 inches shorter than GSP's. He'll have to get closer than GSP did.

Not necessarily difficult if Hendricks knows Condit won't take him down.

Circular mma math, ftw.

I'm not convinced that Hendricks wants anything to do with Carlos on the ground. Carlos is a very big, long WW. He has shown he can fight off his back: he strikes from the bottom, and has dangerous subs with those long limbs.

If it goes to the gound, I'm betting Hendricks gets tapped.

Hendricks said he expects a grind out win would still give him a title shot.

So don't be surprised if he turns this into an ugly fight.

I got Condit winning this. Don't know how though. I just feel he's the better fighter and he'll get it done some way or another.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

New stipulation - if Hendricks loses, Carlos shaves his beard.

This is a tough fight to call. I'm going with Hendricks even though Condit is a way better fighter. They're going to engage eventually so we know what happens.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Carlos is going to kick that knee until Hendricks can't plant it, then the headkicks will come!

EDIT: Did Hendricks use the vasiline inside of his nose?!?

Looking forward to this one. Can't remember ever supporting Carlos before but would love it if he sparked Hendricks here.

edit: can't see it happening unfortunately. Hendricks looks like a man on a ******* mission!
