GSP: I can overpower Hendricks if I want to


UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre figths #1 contender Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Nov. 16. In a pre-fight interview, St-Pierre says how he is feeling, and what he believes. To Anderson Silva's reflexive "It's normal" line, we can now add the Canadian's "I believe it."

"I'm the best in the world," said GSP. "I believe it. And I've got to prove it again to everybody."

"I'm very excited fighting Johny Hendricks, the #1 guy right now. A lot of people believe he has the style to beat me.  I'm better than him everywhere. I believe it."

"I respect his power, but I'm not afraid of it. People don't realize I'm the best at not getting hit, not getting damaged. I can take a punch. I don't know what's going to happen in the fight. It's like playing cards - you don't show your hands."

"I'm better than him everywhere. I can wrestle him, overpower him if I want to. I'm not scared... We'll put his chin, his wrestling, his jiu-jitsu to the test. It's a fine line sometimes between arrogance and confidence. I'm very confident. I think I'm going to win, he thinks he's going to win. So, we're going clash, and find out."

Do you believe it?

If jonny comes lunging in like he does in all his fights. He will get taking down. All the like condit and kampman he was really chasing with that left. Gsp will exploit this and put him on his back. Which will make him more reluctant to so that. Then your going to have gsp establish range and pick him apart. I so see jonny fading in the later rounds and try to wrestle gsp. Should be good but. I don't see anywhere where jonny is better other than power.

If someone still catches GSP in his career, I truly hope it won't be Hendricks. Do VADA like you promised and keep your mouth shut. Heck ya.
