I think he will fight GSP with one leg or arm if it comes to it. Hope he gets better quickly!

I think this fight ends early when Hendricks has all his power.
I don't think it's comparable. There were quite some people who thought Weidman had a decent chance with his well roundedness. I, (even still) considering Silva to be the GOAT, thinking Silva would win thought Weidman could cause some reasonable problems for Silva. Weidman was considered having the tools to exploit Silva's weakness (wrestling) and having the grappling skill to not get submitted like Sonnen. St. Pierre on the other hand hasn't really shown any weakness to exploit since the Serra fight.

Hendricks barely got passed Condit. Weren't it for the massive favorism of take downs in the judges scoring he probably would have lost. He certainly would have lost in a 5 rounder.

No, he doesn't. He very heavily relies on exploiting his opponent's weakness. He doesn't try to wrestle them if that's there strongest asset.

There are reports coming in of someone trying to sabotage Hendricks.

Don't lie. He received those burns laying on his back on his living room carpet for weeks on end, preparing for what he's about to endure for 25 minutes.

That would have been hilarious if they tweeted that pic with a description of something like that.

Yep. Just preparing for his inevitable loss. He cried so much before this fight, I can't even imagine the flood of tears after GSP makes him look like an amateur for 25 minutes.

Burned fighters. Happened before with Johil de Oliveira in his entrance to Pride 9, all in the name of show and entertainment. I have seen the video at the time and it was pretty sick occurrence. I could not find any link anymore, though, so, if somebody has it, that would be awesome.

MMA in itself is purely a sport, but every promotion walks a line somewhere between sport and entertainment; where that line is drawn is up to each organization. While some fans prefer the more straightforward, professional production values of the UFC, others long for the rich pageantry and theatrics of Pride. No matter where you stand, everyone likes a fight full of fireworks. Well, everyone other than Johil de Oliveira. A victim of Pride’s WWF-esque walkouts, de Oliveira was warming up backstage for his Pride 9 bout with Matt Serra when he stepped on part of the pyrotechnic display, setting it off like a landmine. He was rushed to the hospital with serious burns, setting a record for ‘most baked fighter’ that would stand until Pride 33. Johil would recover and fight again just six months later, though he still suffers the inability to shave frequently or sunbathe – a fate worse than death for a Brazilian.
