Freddy Roach: Hendricks easy to figure out


Although not date has been set, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is widely expected to next face Johny Hendricks.

Boxing trainer extraordinaire Freddie Roach is a sometime part of GSP's camp, and says Hendricks is easy to figure out.

 "His next opponent, Hendricks, is a southpaw with a good punch," Roach told Fight Hub TV. "I have tape on Hendricks and we're working to nullify what he does. We got the gameplan pretty much down already. We're working on it. He's always looking for that big shot. He's a veteran wrestler, of course, a good wrestler, but he doesn't even like to wrestle. He depends on that big left hand. He doesn't even want to go to the ground too much.

"He's not real difficult to figure out."

Again, how can an 0-2 bum whos been catered by raw upstart fighters on the feet judge anyone Else's skills. Clearly your in no position to judge other fighters...this is why they need to review fighter applications on this website.

Most mma fighters do have amateur level boxing. Aside from a few, most would get eaten up QUICKLY in a straight up boxing match at a pro level. Johnny's striking is very basic but he has a lot of power, which enables him to knock guys out.

Yeah sure, the #3 p4p fighter in the world is overrated and has nothing but a jab and a superman punch... and Hendrick's boxing is amateur level?! He sure did knock some heads off for being an "amateur" at it.You are talking about trained killers that could murder anyone in this thread within a few seconds dude. You've got no business talking about anyone in the UFC at the top of the division being overrated or easy to figure out. If you were in the cage with either of them you wouldnt figure out anything and not trade a single punch. You wouldnt even remember it and wake up in a hospital asking "what happened?!".

How are they overrated? That would mean you don't consider them the 2 best WW in the world. GSP has 11 straight wins over top contenders. Hasn't lost in 6 years (went a few years without losing a round) , has avenged his only loses- both by stoppage. Underrated maybe?

Geeze, I had to vote down that video. Stupid popup right in the middle of the screen asking to thumbs up for GSP vs. Hendricks. At least say it like it is. Tell them you want their thumbs up on your video. And for god's sake, don't put it right in the middle of the screen.
