I think it's fair to say that Hendricks is a far more accomplished wrestler as a 2x national champion than Fitch. I know that doesn't mean that he's a better mma wrestler, but on paper Hendricks is the best wrestler Fitch has ever fought(along with GSP), and he lost to both of them.

It's kinda hard to tell if Hendricks or Fitch is the better wrestler because the only thing that happened in that fight was Hendricks punching Fitch's face off his face.

 My husband and I disagree on this.  He thinks Fitch wins by UD, I think the A-Train gets a KO.  We'll see who has to take out the garbage that week...

What if Fitch does an anti-GSP and just starts steamrolling everything in his path?
