Yes and Condit goes riskier than St. Pierre. So if Hendricks couldn't find Condit's chin I doubt he will find St. Pierre's who fights much safer to avoid any damage to himself.

Hendricks is so far from being the style to beat GSP. I get that Hendricks deserves to fight him or whatever but seriously. GSP is a specialist at fighting wrestlers and guys with big hooks. This will be GSP vs. Koscheck II except Hendricks will wilt earlier IMO.


Bring on Maia vs. GSP.

Honestly what else is he going to do?

He doesn't have the reach to stay on the outside and GSP is fast so he'll eat shots all night if he doesn't close the distance. Let's be real here, GSP doesn't have tons of power and Hendricks can definitely eat quite a few of those jabs to get in and throw big shots.

I wouldn't expect anything less if Hendricks wants to put him away.

This...
I believe Hendricks will try and work his wrestling game the same way he did against Condit. I don't doubt that he will throw power punches and I know he plans on going for the KO, but I see him resorting to his wrestling skills soon.

I'm not sure what GSP wants to do or what he will do but I'll tell you what Hendricks will be doing, he'll be looking slow.

He's gonna look like a fat, slow, bouncer as he stalks around throwing haymakers as Georges dances on the outside, landing jabs, kicks, take downs, donkey punches, etc...

GSP is a world class striker. He may not show offensive striking all the time because he chooses the safe route. Hendricks has heart and tough willpower but when he eats the technique of GSP's stiff jab, he will definetly wince and feel it.
Hendricks will walk through the jab but his strikes wont have the same technique and timing. This factor lets GSP find openings and throw heavier strikes.

If GSP's former opponents threw wild strikes with pressure then I could of definetly seen GSP with more finishes.
