Hendricks: GSP can't prepare for my heart


Johnny Hendricks has unquestionably earned his status of number one contender in the welterweight division, winner of his last six consecutive bouts including three of the UFC's top five welterweights. His next bout will most likely a matchup with champion Georges St-Pierre and according to Hendricks, he has all the tools to win:

In the end, Hendricks believes that he will surprise GSP. Even if the champ seems to think figuring out Hendricks is easy, Hendricks stated he has more in his arsenal than Georges is prepared to handle.

“I’ll tell you my game plan. I’m gonna hit you with my left. If that doesn’t work I’m going to try to take you down. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to find a way to win Georges,” said Hendricks. “One thing that he cannot prepare for is my heart, my speed, and my determination to win. He says to everybody, ‘You’ve not faced anybody like me’. Well guess what? He’s never faced a 208-pound, 170 welterweight that has power and a true wrestler.”

HEndricks has the wrestling and power but he may not have the cardio.

I doubt GSP lets Hendricks left hand find his chin. He is too smart and too good defensively. He will keep Hendricks at bay with his jab, then when he isn't expecting, he will shoot for the double. IF somehow Hendricks connects with the left, he could KO GSP. But I think GSP takes this fight 9/10 times.

Let's put it like this. If GSP fights Silva, I give GSP a skin chance of being successful. If Hendrick's was to fight Silva, I'd give him absolutely zero chance of being successful. Can Hendrick's beat GSP. Sure, why not. Maybe one out of five.

Johnny's the frist guy in a long time who is fighting Georges where I am entertaining the idea he could catch him and KO him. (Condit was the other one.)I think GSP wins, but Hendricks has the tools to win this fight.

When he was on the rise I was a big fan of Hendricks and was pulling for him to get a title shot, but over the last little while since he's got some fame every time I hear him talk I like him less and less he just comes off horribly in every interview I see, I've gone from a huge supporter to wanting him to get ktfo
