Hendriks cardio will be the deciding factor in this one and I just can't see him winning against GSP. GSP is just too much in every department. I think GSP's wrestling will be better as well in this fight. I think Hendriks camp will work on Johny's hand speed and accuracy and he will try to knock GSP out in the first round. However, if he doesn't succeed by the third round, he will lose for sure. I see GSP moving a lot, using his jab and kicks, tiring Johny one round at a time and by the third round I see him taking the fight to the ground when Hendriks gets really exhausted.

Even if GSP gets Hendricks down, I can see a top-flight wrestler like Hendricks being able to stand back up. Hendricks is a strong, stocky dude and if he wants to I think he can stand up without letting GSP lay on him for the whole round. Has anybody ever kept Hendricks down like that before? I'm genuinely curious, because I dont remember.

Go watch the Kos and Story fights. Both wrestlers controlled him and nullified his striking. In both fights he tired visibly by round three. If they can do it GSP will do it. I've seen nothing from Hendricks that makes me think he has more than a punchers chance.

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

Hendrix has nothing to offer striking wise except for his big left which he can land when he bull rushes you.
Everytime he will do that, GSP will take him down.
The rest of the time, GSP will pick him apart standing.

The one thing is that hendrix should know that, and he should therefore plan accordingly.

Otherwise, GSP all night long

Yeah, it's MMA math, but if Kos was able to out wrestle Hendricks (and he did, stopping all of Hendrick's attempts and taking him down for some G&P in the 3rd,) then GSP will have a field day .. that and a 7" reach advantage (Hendricks will have to stop for lunch on the way to GSPs jaw whenever he swings his left hook,) and GSP's tons more speed on the jabs and superman punch, 5 rounds, and Hendricks will need to get really lucky with his only real weapon, his lunging hook.

Hendricks best chance to win this fight is to take a Chael Sonnen approach, and pressure GSP. Try to take him down instead of constantly defending takedowns. I've lost count of how many of GSP's opponents wait for him, and constantly defend tds, jabs, etc... If Johny Hendricks comes out as the aggressor and goes for broke to finish, he will probably win. If he shows up with the same gameplan as GSP last few opponents, standing/ waiting/ and relying on his exceptional wrestling background back him in defending GSP's shots, he will get taken down, and dominated for 5 rds.

GSP will decision the crap out of Hendricks. He might never recover from the decision-whooping GSP is going to put on him.

I am the foremost authority on my opinion.

Hendricks is certainly a serious challenge but your argument is based on assumptions I don't think are correct.

Hendricks took Condit down but did absolutely nothing with it and couldn't keep him down. Compared to George who put Carlos on his back, kept him there and did damage.

Until proven otherwise, GSP has the best "mma wrestling".

Hendricks' NCAA credentials are irrelevant. Theoretically, you can win an NCAA title with 0 take downs. Most of the ways you score points in NCAA wrestling don't work in mma. That's why some Div 2 wrestlers have better mma wrestling than some Div 1 champs.

GSP's biggest weapon is his explosive speed, which IMO has been diminished due to his ACL repair.

What George does better than anyone is reactive takedowns. He initiates the stand-up and just when his opponent fires a punch he ducks down and counters with a double leg. That's how he put Kos on his back, that's how he'll put Hendricks on his back...if he ever fights Silva that is likely the only way he'd put Anderson on his back.

Prior to shooting for a double leg, GSP will stay in kickboxing range, use his jab, circle left and never back straight up.

100% correct.

Matt Serra and Chael Sonnen. The only two fighters smart enough to pressure the fastest fighters in mma.
