It would be an intriquing fight just for this reason. Didn't they say that Hendricks was 56-0 or whatever in college wrestling?

Yes, GSP can take him down but the question is can he hold him down to do damage. I don't think he can.

If you watch the 2nd Koscheck fight GSP shot in a few times and Kos stuffed him or just scrambled back up easily.

They weren't trying to punch him in the face in college. I say GSP can takedown whoever he wants.

I actually think johny's KO power would be a significant factor in that fight. Dangerous fight. Phone Post

 Kos was able to take him down, so I'm guessing he could, but it'd be tough. Either way that fight is gonna spend a lot of time on the feet. Big question is whether GSP can keep Hendricks at range with his jab. Hendricks won't have the kicks to keep him honest, so I believe we would see something similar to GSP vs KOS

Should be GSPs toughest fight to date, much tougher than Anderson who can't stop anyone from taking him down.

Kos is able to takedown just about anyone in the WW division. He took GSP for a ride in their 1st fight as well.

GSP will take less damage when he fights hendricks as compared to the Condit fight..with hendricks u only have to worry about his hands..and yes GSP will take Hendricks down...

For KO power being an advantage, people said the same thing for the Alves fight (who was murdering people at the time) and we all saw what happened. Hendricks has a good as shot as anybody though, it only takes once solid shot to throw somebody off their game, even GSP.

Yes but not easily. The ko power would be an equalizer IMO. Phone Post

Alves has good boxing but his kicking game open up his hands. Alves didn't use his kicks because he was afraid of the takedown against GSP which caused him to be a sitting duck that fight.

Hendricks throws bungalows and isn't much of a kicker so they are different in that regard.

Hendricks is a punching wrestler.
GSP is a punching/kicking wrestler.

I think GSP will have to be on his bike for a round or two, while trying to steal the rounds with takedowns, which I think he would get.....I think Hendricks may start to gas out after this and he will be GSP's plaything if he does......But, he could KO for sure if he catches him early.......I would pick GSP, but would not lay any money on this one....

I said he could KO him if he caught him, so I am not sure why you are saying this....I also said I lean to GSP, but would not lay money on it meaning I would not be in shock if he got tagged.....So I am not sure what u are trying to tell me.....Not being a dick here at all.....I think we are saying the same thing......That he could potentially KO him.....

9/10 times GSP easily beats and dominates Hendricks.

GSP has a significant advantage in everything other than raw ko power.

GSP via sub or decision when this fight happens. Phone Post

GSP can take Hendricks down but he doesnt really need too. He will outstrike him all day while Big Rig swings haymakers at air.
