I did not mind GSP jabbing Koscheck to death until it got close to the end, Koscheck was clearly hurt and flustered, and GSP would not deviate from his gameplan even a little to go for the finish. I'm hoping IF GSP beats Hendrix it doesn't go down quite like that again.

I like seeing all around domination atleast. Not just a superior jab coupled with superior footwork. It's kinda like playing Mortal Kombat with your buddies and winning by doing just one move repeatedly. It works, but kind of a b***h thing to do lol.

GSP is going to jab, out-strike, and keep Johny at bay with relative ease. And I'm going to laugh at all the crybabies who will no doubt be in here complaining about it as GSP goes on to break a number of UFC records, including the late Anderson Silva's.

Don't forget 'First Round Joe Lauzon'.

I think I've also seen 'Roy Nelson with cardio' a few times.

I'm not even remotely worried. GSP has faced and completely shut down better than Crybaby Hendrix.

It really isn't

You've got Hughes, Penn, Fitch, Condit, and Shields whose legacy's dwarf what Hendricks has done/shown so far. Not saying he can't reach that upper level and he did beat two of them but he's got a long way to go before people insert him into the top ten WW's of all time.

Another point, does anyone think Hendricks is a bigger threat to GSP than Demian Maia. Because to me when I look at Maia he reminds me of Silva at 185 and Jones at 205, perfect scary and dominant.
