Hendricks: GSP's just holding onto my belt


At the UFC 162 post-fight press conferece UFC President Dana White made official that Georges St-Pierre will defend his title next against Johnny Hendricks. Hendricks has been vocal in the media promoting the fight already and is as confident as ever going into the bout:

“You train, you do everything, you’ve done everything that you could and to know that your boss believes in you that you can beat Georges St-Pierre means everything. That’s just confidence that you can shock the world,” Hendricks said. “The only difference is Georges won’t have his hands down. I want to knock him out, but I want his hands to be up. I want to punch people’s hands and I wanna lay him out the right way.”

From the tale of the tape Hendricks and his training staff have analyzed in advance of fighting GSP, he’s prepared for the wrestling and jabs he knows are coming. But the hardest part for Hendricks, in his own words, is being able to stop it.

On the flipside, “Bigg Rigg” claims to have more power than he’s ever revealed inside the Octagon which he plans to unleash against the champ.

“The only people who know my true power are people that I’ve wrestled and that’s about it. That’s what I’m excited to bring out is that kind of intensity, that kind of power that I haven’t shown the world yet, and I plan to do that in November.”

“That’s the hardest part is stepping in against a guy who’s had the belt since forever ago. The most important thing is that I believe that’s my belt. He’s just holding onto it for me.”

As a huge Silva fan, the Anderson KO has made me somewhat dissapointed in Silva but I know he will destroy Weidman in their rematch bout. I went from being 100% confident that Hendricks will KO Georges to 150% that Johnny might actually bring something GSP isn't prepared for (even though Hendricks resembles a dirty little Amish man.) I still have Hendricks in this fight and Weidman made this fight a lot more interesting for me.

If GSP was Goku he'd never shut up about Anderson Silva

I'm Canadian, so you know who I usually root for, but I have to say this:1) Hendricks goes balls to the wall in attacking, something a heavy handed wrestler (koscheck) did not do2) condits chin of steel got him out of the first round with johny. If gsp got hit with those shots, I believe he would have been done

Yes, GSP is past his prime, looked slow and weak against Diaz.Hendricks definitely has a chance. Can't wait to see this fight.

GSP is definitely past his prime, I'll say that much.Despite that, Hendricks is yet another welterweight that he'll put away. The dude just keeps doing it. There's nobody at welterweight that can beat him - only himself. And lol at Johny's comment. When people think of "UFC welterweight title", they think of GSP, then Matt Hughes. It's Georges' belt.
