I know it's UFC only but the biggest whatever guy is James McSweeney. It takes a special kind of asshole to be a James McSweeney fan.

Completely agree, but doesn't everyone love to see someone get knocked out in spectacular fashion?

He has insane power in that left hand, and if he does catch GSP, he could very easily turn his lights off. I don't see it happening, but with Hendricks you really don't know.
I'm not disagreeing with you that Koscheck's KO power was overhyped, but with the exception of Jon Fitch, Hendrick's KO victim list is not all that impressive either. Who HASN'T KO'd Martin Kampmann? Brennenman who? Waldburger is your classic journey man. I'm not saying Hendricks doesn't have good power in that left, he does for sure. You do not KO somebody like Jon Fitch without lots of power, but besides him, he hasn't really KO'd anybody special and I can not see him KO'ing GSP! Like Joab said, you need to be skilled to set up that power shot! GSP's footwork will confuse Hendricks and make him miss by miles.

Of course. I am more whatever in the sense that when he fights I don't care who wins. I don't root for or against him. If it is an awesome KO then great. If he loses, that's fine as well.

Clay Guida and Diego Sanchez are two more I don't feel anything about, when they fought each other it was cool, but otherwise they're very unexciting fighters.

Yushin Okami (who ironically was cut recently) - Good wrestler, decent chin but just never really did it for me. I could care less if he was on a card.

Also the same can be said about Matt Hamill

Hmmm no. A lot of guys who fight at 155 are 5'10 and above and there are more than a few who have to cut fewer than 15 lbs. There are tons lf 170 plus guys who cut more than 25 lbs. A Silva walks around at 230.
