Correct, but this is also the reason this...

I apologize, apparently my post appeared to support that Hendricks could follow Serra's gameplan to win. I merely was showing how the common held belief that "Serra got lucky" was wrong.

I think Hendricks stands a solid shot of beating GSP, but it all depends on his ability to stop GSPs shot. If he can't do that then his bombs don't matter, his fight with Alves proved that.

Yeah but Alves was always overrated and never the same level of threat as Hendricks.

As much as I enjoy poking fun at Hendricks, he has a very good punchers chance at winning. He's explosive and hits like a mack truck. All he needs is one clean shot and if that doesn't end it, the follow up punches will.

But if GSP does what he normally does, and like a mad scientist uses all this skills to throw Hendricks off and tires him out, GSP will dominate in all departments.

It was this fight that changed GSP. I am not saying Serra is a better fighter than GSP, we all know that isn't true. I am saying Serra exploited a weakness of GSP so badly he changed his entire fighting style.
Hendricks would have to show me he is capable of following (let alone effectively implementing) that game plan (power shots to the body to set up for the head shot) before I started to worry about that from Hendricks ... check the Koscheck fight, he was all head-hunter. Not to mention Kos out clearly wrestled him IMO (stuffs, take downs, and control,) and Johnny seems to be slightly gassed in the 3rd round.

Hendricks got in the more strikes in rounds 1 & 2 of the Koscheck fight, where wrestling didn't contribute much, and kept any wrestling defeat isolated to things that don't show up easily on the
score card (stuffs and strength) so I have no issue with the split decision going to him (although had it been a 5 round fight Josh would have likely dominated rounds 4 & 5 IMO given his better cardio)but if Josh can handle Johnny's wrestling, GSP is going to have no issues at all with that part of Johnny's game ... standing up Johnny is going to have to overcome someone who shows up in the top ten (if not the actual record holder) of just about every area of MMA striking (http://www.fightmetric.com/ufcrecords.php) and he's going to have to overcome him quickly, because if it goes to round 4 and he's not clearly up 3 rounds to 0, Johnny might as well walk out of the cage and demand that GSP go through another round of drug testing, because he'll have a better chance of winning a GSP drug appeal than winning rounds 4 or 5.

Punchers chance is all he's got.

You guys need to be careful with all this MMAth you got going on. This guy did this to that guy who did this to that guy doesn't always add up in MMA.
Hendricks is strong, he has a great wrestling background and knockout power. He also knows what GSP brings to the table and I'm sure he is training specifically for GSP's style.
He is being overlooked, GSP is a very smart fighter but he hasn't looked super human lately. I think he is overrated by fans, the gap between him and others isn't nearly as wide as most people make it seem.

Everyone knows what GSP brings to the table, and unless they're complete idiots they all trained for it. And they were all shut down and beaten in one-sided decisions.

Can Hendricks beat GSP? Sure. He's got a ton of power and like Hendo, he has a gift for landing that damn punch when he has no business doing so.

The problem for Hendricks is that no one is better than GSP and his camp at finding way to shut down their opponents. Remember all those guys who said GSP would be afraid to take Nick Diaz down because he'd get submitted on the ground? How'd that one work out?

I suspect something very similar is going to happen to Hendricks, GSP is going to find a way to shut him down and the entire forum is going to go back to complaining about how he's boring. And only a very few will realize the brilliance of how it was done and how much skill it took.

Its easy to list all the positive features of a fighter to make them sound good. I like Johny. I would like him to win if I'm honest. But, looking at all the fights in his recent streak, its clear to me Hendrix lacks a bit of stamina. In all his recent wins, he either impressively knocks his opponent out in round one, or goes on to win a close decision. With each subsequent round, he looks worse and worse. He never improves as fights go on. Its all downhill.

GSP is strong. He never wilts. His use of reach is the best at WW. He's been in more 5 round fights then most. He has all the ingredients to shut Hendrix down.

In a nutshell, if the fight goes into round 2, its over for Hendrix. I dont think he has a 5 round war in him.

It's true. He schooled him for 23 minutes.

Yet 23 minutes of dominating are not always enough to win a fight
