Round 1 will be a cautious affair. Round 2 through 5 GSP will continue pick apart Henricks face with repeated jabs, and wear him out with repeated take downs and ground control.

Carlos Condit was a much more dangerous, and real threat because of how dynamic he is.

With that being said, this is still MMA, and anything can happen.
This post says a lot about what is wrong with the UFC marketing department, they are basically broken down to the point that every time other time GSP fights they try and sell us that his opponent has a punchers chance.

I would disagree. The UFC tries to make every opponent of GSP look like the one who's finally going to dethrone him.

Don't get me wrong, I know every has their time. I just find it funny they made Dan Hardy and Jake Shields look like they even belonged in the cage with GSP.

Unless Hendricks is gun shy that jab isn't going to work in the first 2 or 3 rounds. The speed at which he closes the distance is being greatly overlooked. He will knock GSP's head off if he tries to strike with him early.

This fight will be decided by how well GSP can do in the wrestling department. If he can't have his way for the most part Hendricks will knock him out in the first 3. If he can make this a grappling match early then he can take away the only threat Hendricks poses and cruise to a decision win.

Sounds about right. I do think that Hendricks is the most potent of all challengers because of his wrestling background. Only thing missing is his cardio.

I definitely would not bet on this fight too many things can go wrong although GSP is the rightful favorite as long he dictates the pace for the first three rounds. Then he can cruise.

The GSP jab against T-rex arms Hendricks. Hendricks won't land shit. If GSP wants to take him down, he will. Hendricks has what all of GSPs previous opponents had, a punchers chance.

Jake Shields won rounds on the judges score cards. GSP barely managed to out box him. He did clearly win the fight convincingly, but he didn't make Shields look like he didn't deserve to be in the cage with him.

I haven't really got much interest in this fight at all. Who ever wins, wins.

True, but misses the reason why I think Hendricks stands the best shot of beating GSP. He has a punchers chance, and he can use it inside the clinch via dirty boxing. Hendricks has the short range power that none of GSP's other opponents had. So if Hendricks can stuff a TD and end up in the clinch he has the best chance to crack GSP.

Outside of that though I think Hendricks is in for a long night. I just think that in the first or second round Hendricks will stuff one, clinch, and then bombs go off.

Don't think Hendricks has any chance of winning this, he failed to do any significant damage to Condit, how is he going to touch GSP who is slightly better then the former?

GSP is not Silva, he does not like to clown around. He will stick to his game plan and beat the shit out of Hendricks, mark my words.

Clearly won a fight where he was partially blind for most of it? I'd say he did a pretty good job of beating shields under the circumstances.
