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.
When has Hendricks shown this short range power? His knockouts have been almost left handed tributes to Dan Henderson's H-bomb. He throws his big punch from quite a ways away and covers a fair bit of ground while doing so.

I have no interest in these kind of excuses that crop up after every GSP performance.

Eye was sore in the shields fight
Groin problems in the Alves fight
GSP was just "too nice" to lock up a submission on Hardy

etc etc, I get sick of hearing that rubbish and people trying to come up with excuses for his play it safe victories.

"Eye was sore", is not the same as, "partially blind".

But then, I kinda' think you knew that already.

I sort of agree with this. With 1 eye you should still be able to out-strike Shields if you are any good.

GSP isn't a finisher, he is incapable of finishing any good fighters. His last finish was vs. a LW well actually a featherweight, who has terrible cardio, and quit. His finish before that was unanswered knees to the side vs. another midget in Serra.

Nick Diaz has the worst scare tissue in the UFC, yet GSP did next to no damage. Diaz who notoriously always looks like he has been in a war win or lose suffered no real damage after 5 rounds of GSP's nonsense. GSP actually had lacerations all over his face.

GSP is great at winning MMA decisions. But he has close to no finishing skills, and the excuses are just that, excuses.

I couldn't care less what the excuse is, I just get tired of seeing it after every GSP fight where people and fanboys are desperate to excuse his play it safe victories.

Just accept the fact that he's a decision fighter without coming out with all of these "well he was blah blah, he would have finished if he wasn't blah blah".

The "too nice" comments from the Hardy fight, I honestly couldn't believe what I was reading at times.

I'm kind of with you in general or in spirit but I thought the Thiago Alves fight was ****ing awesome. Real Champion ****

This one is either going to end quick and there will be a new WW champion crowned or GSP via a 5 round ground humping. I'll take the latter.

All the way back in the Amir Saddollah fight. His clinch striking is actually pretty brutal.

I had forgotten all about that fight. (and a sh*tload of other stuff) Sadollah was looking good until that clinch. Its good to see Johny doesn't really believe in one punch.
