Hendricks = Koscheck 1.1.

I imagine GSP will alternate between laying on top of him doing no damage, and swatting at him with his jab and doing little damage, for 5 rounds and then winning the fight on points. As he always does.
The real question is whether I'll be able to stay awake through an entire GSP fight.

...Even though Condit lost by decision, he exposed Johny a bit. Carlos did fairly well controlling the distance. Hendricks missed a few huge left bombs, way over-committing leaving himself for a nasty counter. It's safe to say that GSP's wrestling will neutralize Johny's. No argument there. GSP, like Condit has more tools on the feet. Hendricks has ridiculous KO power, more than anyone else in the division but he has to land. Condit ate some monster left shots and kept going. St. Pierre has been finished by punches only one time in his whole career. Hendricks can certainly be the first to put GSP to sleep but it's highly unlikely. Condit started a good blueprint on Johny. Distance and headmovement are key. If Hendricks comes in swinging wild and missing, he leaves his chin right there to be tagged, Georges certainly has the power and speed to land something brutal. I doubt Hendricks will put GSP to sleep. A grind out win most likely for GSP...

Johny's left is very fast, I didn't expect him to land it as often as he did against Condit who is obviously the better striker.. but Condit has never been all that hard to hit, he just has an iron chin so he usually walks through punches and lands his own... I guarantee if Johny lands even one of those lefts, he is gonna have GSP in a world of trouble...

lets just forget about Johny taking GSP down or out wrestling him, GSP has just as good of sweeps as Condit and we all saw Condit escape sweep reverse and get back to his feet over and over again meanwhile taking ZERO damage...

Johny needs to come out of the gate and pressure GSP, he has proven he has a decent chin last fight because Carlos landed some really good shots... He needs to rush GSP, he covers distance with his left very well and it is very fast, I think that really is his only chance considering that even if he could match GSPs wrestling he still doesn't have the cardio to keep it up over 5 rounds..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

FALSE. Hendricks has heavier hands, and throws quicker strikes. Koscheck is a better wrestler with a better chin and top game.

Johnny is definitely another wrestler boxer combo that seems to be so prominent in the WW division, so I can see a lazy comparison being made to someone like Koscheck. And Ellenberger. And Story. And Fitch. And Hathaway.

Only thing seperating Johnny from the pack is his awesome left hand. He has a great left and uses it whenever he gets the chance. He moves to his opponent's lead and just thrusts it out like it's some missile or something. That sounded way more Freudian than I intended it to be, but you guys catch my drift, right? If he lands, it's career over for the other guy.
