This fight will just like every other GSP fight in the past five years with the same result.

GSP fights the smart fight... and having a greater reach == stay on the outside and wait for stoopid mistakes made by your opponent.

When Hendricks attempt to close the distance with his bombs, he will get dropped on his back and GSP will turn his face to mush... GSP aint going to try anything snazzy, like trying for a sub or something cause Hendricks aint gonna let him...
He will prolly stay in half/full guard, use his extra long reach to drop elbows or just G&P... end round, rinse, repeat

YET.. even tho GSP is THIS predicable, he still is the champ, go figure

People don't seem to realize that when Hendricks inevitably goes ape wild looking for his big flurry, he'll leave himself open for an easy takedown. You can't rush in looking for that big shot and work defensive wrestling/TDD at the same time. GSP's takedowns are going to have Hendricks second guessing himself about going for that big power shot... you get wild, you get taken down.

That doesn't mean GSP can't be caught. And it doesn't mean that Hendricks won't come in and try to outwrestle GSP. But it's fairly obvious that if he goes for those big power exchanges, he opens himself up for a takedown - which GSP is more than good enough to capitalize on. I do love that because Nick was able to stuff some half hearted takedown attempts, GSP's wrestling, his once most heralded tool, is now 'non existent'.

Either way, Hendricks is easily GSP's toughest challenge in years.

I don't think Hendricks will knock him out, but if the GSP that fought yesterday is just like the one who will fight Hendricks, then his title is in as much jeopardy as I think it's ever been in. Diaz stuffed too many takedown attempts, and Hendricks will be MUCH harder to take down. GSP better beef his cardio up for this fight, he needs that advantage.

I don't think GSP will have that hard of a time taking down Hendricks.

Well seeing as Hendricks has been outwrestled twice in mma (Kos and Story) by far worse wrestlers than GSP I don't see how he's just going to keep it standing. GSP has taken down everyone he has ever tried to no matter their credentials, experience, or natural ability. He is also damn near impossible to takedown and keep down.

From what I saw last night Hendricks loses badly unless GSP just comes in and fights the way he did in round 3 against Diaz.

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

The reason is because Hendricks broke his left hand.

would be interesting to see hendricks try to charge in and get the takedown and combine that with punches on the break when GSP backs away.

GSP had some trouble taking/keeping KOS down the second time they fought, but at least KOS had the experience of fighting him before and must have really focused on that one area for the second fight.

That's super. GSP tore his groin against Alves and didn't drop a single round. Whether Hendricks wilted due to injury or Carlos turning up the heat, Johny clearly doesn't deal well with adversity - he can be broken.

Truth!

I'll go one further and say that GSP was easily able to outwrestle Koscheck, whereas Hendricks struggled and nearly lost a decision. It might be MMA math, but it's certainly worth addressing. GSP will definitely have to worry about Hendricks clipping him, but you can bet your sweet bippy that Hendricks will have to worry about being taken down and controlled by GSP.
