I see Hendrix taking down GSP once or twice, but not being able to capitalize on it. We'll see how big Johnny's heart is after 3 straight rounds of frustration... and that's when mistakes happen.

He'll start to swing wildly for the fences and GSP will take him down at will, punish him with short elbows and wear him down via smothering.

He talks a big game now but I guarantee once that cage closes, Hendrix will have a different mindset.
Hendricks ate a lot from a much more dangerous condit he won't have any qualms with GSP of all people. Also to my point about GSP being taken down I said that point while alluding to the fact that they were getting killed in the fights and GSP was on top or back to his feet in no time which is why I say keeping GSP is the real challenge not taking him down.

One advantage in the wrestling department johnny has is that he is short and stocky which is very good for a wrestler prototype. The one weakness I have seen from johnny is that fence clinching is his enemy, he won't get hurt but he can get stalled to death.

Uh, getting hit with a jab while coming in throws your head backwards and puts you far from a position of power to throw from. That's the entire point of the jab. It's not like everyone else just didn't like having their face touched and therefor never "ate a jab" to land on GSP.

GSP jabs perfectly, lining his arm up with his back instead of just punching frontwards. You can't walk through that kind of jab, it's your head/neck versus his entire upper body.

edit: Koscheck looks like Nogueira in that picture.
