The only guy that has a chance is the guy that won't fight him. Rory MacDonald. Hendricks fight will look like the Koscheck fight. Georges will dominate.

It's hard to believe Hendricks would be taken down as easily as every else has, but then GSP has fought an awful lot of we-thought-at-the-time great wrestlers, and he toys with them, takedown-wise.

OTOH, if you can get a clean power shot on GSP's head, he can be hurt, and Hendricks has gotten clean power shots at EVERYBODY'S head.

I believe this to be true for anyone really...

As a big GSP fan, Hendrix scares me too...
Big power, good chin, solid wrestling (not sure how good his TDD or scrambling back to his feet) and hungry like a wolf...

However, other fighers have scared me in the past too,and GSP managed everytime so, it would be very very interesting.

I think Ellenberger is a less scary version of Hendrix.

As for Maia, I don't see it being a rerun of the AS fight, as he is way stronger at 170, but I'm thinking that after GSP stuffs the first few TD attempts, or gets back up quickly after being taken down, he would pick him apart standing...

Hendricks has better takedown offense than Ellenberger, but Ellenberger has shown a little better defensive wrestling. Hendricks is good enough to stuff GSP

People are saying Hendricks will be just like Kos/GSP. I disagree, I'm a HUGE Kos fan , but there is a difference here. 1. Hendricks is much more aggressive 2. Hendricks is not scared to shoot on GSP and take the risk of being stuffed.

Hendrix has the best style for GSP. More than good wrestling to neutralize GSPs and wee all now about his standup power. Experience is by far on GSP side and his strongest weapon against Hendrix..

I like Maia, and I would love for him to be champ, but I think a Maia fight would look a lot like the Jake Shields or Koscheck fight. Maia isn't taking GSP to the ground if GSP doesn't want it.

I love how people keep saying that Hendricks will stuff GSP when he couldn't outwrestle Kos or Story who are far worse mma wrestlers than GSP.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Yeah but Fitch wasn't able to land a single takedown. That's impressive...he never even got close.
