He's a threat as long as the fight is standing, that left hand of his is no joke. I'm pretty sure GSP will take him down without much trouble tho. He's taken down accomplished wrestlers before. I'm not that impressed with Hendricks wrestling thb. Not to say that it's by any means bad but he hasn't shown anything to prove that its on another level either. I dont think his mma-wrestling is any better than Kos, Hughes, Sherk, Fitch or any of the other wrestlers that GSP beat already.

Also his topgame looked pretty bad & I can just imagine that his bottomgame is pretty horrible, as strong wrestlers seldom develope a good guard.

My prediction is GSP will be a bit scared of Johnnys power, he won't take much risk standing with him, but he might jab him around a bit. Then he gets one takedown per round and keeps Hendricks down pretty easy.

The thing that keeps surprising me about Hendricks, is his quickness and fleet of foot. He is of course the archetypal strong wrestler who throws bombs, but there is more to him than that. He has a natural smoothness and creativity about some of the combos he throws, and his hands and footwork are pretty damn fast when he isn't just throwing his uber bomb.

GSP could totally succeed with reactive takedowns off of bum rushes at him, but I also think Hendrick's quickness could really surprise him, and I just get the sense that GSP will not enjoy striking with Hendricks at all.

It's kinda funny, going all the way back to the BJ Penn rematch we had people saying that GSP would get tooled. It was claimed that BJ would stuff the takedowns and use his superior striking to beat up GSP in the standup game. Instead, he got out struck, taken down, beaten up, and finished.

Then because Thiago Alves managed to keep the fight standing against Koscheck, he was going to do the same to GSP and knock him with his superior striking. Instead, he got taken down like everyone else, beaten up, then knocked down in the standup game and beaten up some more.

Then we get to Jake Shields, who because he's taken everyone down and blanketed or sub'd them on the ground, was supposed to do the same to GSP. I do recall a thread entitled, and I quote, "Shields will take down GSP and toy with him on the ground". Shields didn't get a single takedown, and got knocked down twice by GSP.

And just weeks ago we had threads where people claimed that Nick Diaz would work the shit out of GSP if the fight went to the ground, and that GSP would be afraid to take him down and get beaten up by Diaz' superior boxing. How'd that one work out? Beaten in striking and completely shut down on the ground.

There's no question that Hendricks is one hell of a dangerous opponent, he's got deadly power and the timing to land his money punch with a disturbing amount of success. But like the rest of GSP's opponents, I wouldn't be surprised if GSP and his coaches figure out a way to shut him down and take him apart. They're smart and they know how to win. You might not like the way they do it, but you can't deny how good they are at it.

Quoted for mother ******* truth! So easy how people forget.

The "GSP is going to lose" chants are always prevalent... until he wins. Then the talk becomes how boring he is and points to how the NEXT guy is going to be the one to beat him.

He's not invincible... far from it. It's just too funny to watch the conversations on here change.

Hendricks is likely the most power he has ever faced, but the way he generates power (from the waste, hands down) will leave him open and somewhat predictable.

GSP, cautious as he is, should be able to outwork him standing and stuff the takedowns. I'm pretty sure when/if it gets the championship rounds Hendricks will be gassed from fruitlessly throwing his weight around.

To be sure, Georges didn't look great last fight, and it seems like he's getting tired of the fight game, and maybe starting to deteriorate.

GSP can take anyone down even Hendricks

Hendricks Can KO anyone even GSP

Its a fight I'd like to see because of the the possibility of finally seeing someone new as champion. i'm sick to death of GSPs point whoring strategy. Unfortunately I don't think Hendricks will land that punch before he gets put on his back.

A flat Diaz sprawled GSP a few times, if Hendricks comes in superb shape there is no reason why he can't KO GSP

A flat Diaz sprawled a couple of the worst, most half arsed takedown attempts we've ever seen from GSP - at a point in the fight when GSP himself admitted he had gotten tired. Why are you ignoring the facts, breh?

Diaz didn't even have time to think about sprawling when GSP was fresh.

GSP by dominant UD.

I dont see any other outcome realistically possible.
