Hendricks: I may have to beat GSP twice


Johnny Hendricks is the clear cut number one contender in the UFC's welterweight division and will most likely be the next opponent for Georges St-Pierre barring any crazy super fight plans. However, Hendricks knows that not only will he have to defeat GSP to earn the title, he likely may have to beat him again to solidify this title:

“I’m gonna have to beat him twice. Unless I knock him out. If I manhandle him for two round and I knock him out, then there won’t be a rematch,” Hendricks explained. “But if it’s a close fight or I go out and knock him out in the first minute, yeah, there’ll be a rematch.”

That’s okay. He is so ready to face St-Pierre that the prospect of a twofer doesn’t detract from his excitement.

“I’m so excited to finally get to the Octagon and look across and there’s Georges. That’s all I can think about. That’s all I dream about every day. Words can’t explain how excited I am.”

Of course he'd have to beat GSP twice. You don't just beat the WW GOAT and think that's gonna be that. Same thing That's if Weidman beats Silva. There's obviously going to be a rematch

Feel free to flog away at this horse.If you read his post to miss the comma it looks like:Joe: Georges will win (misinterpreted by Jesus as Georges will not win)Jesus: This dude (Johnny) isn't going to beat GSP (disagreeing with what he THOUGHT I was saying, but agreeing with what I actually said.)Taken like that, Jesus is a moran.Unfortunately, the moran is I.

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but even if you missed the comma, how could you possibly misunderstand? Even "this dude isn't going to beat GSP once let alone twice" is 100% agreeing with you.

GSP is training for that left hand all day, everyday, and his wrestling is better. He will out cardio. Hendricks is good but, he isn't fuking with GSP, especially with his poor gas tank

Rematches, especially after a dominant champion loses, are pretty common in combat sports. I don't know what makes Hendricks think that this some special disadvantage that he's in. The guy really talks like there's some conspiracy against him, and I just don't see it. Persecution complex?
