Johny told MMA Fight Corner on Tuesday night why St-Pierre should challenge him next and not Silva.

“Well I’m not as good as Anderson, but I believe I have what it takes to beat GSP. I’m a wrestler, I’ve been wrestling since I was five. And, they say that’s what GSP is the strongest at and also I have knockout power. I can lay anybody out at any given moment. The only thing is that sometimes I like to fight, just because I like to fight. You know what I mean? I don’t like to end it fast. And sometimes I go in there and I know I have to make a statement and I know I have to do something to put myself above everybody else and that’s sort of what happened with Kampmann.”

This past weekend at UFC 154, GSP looked back his ol’ self, able to take down Carlos Condit at will. While a wrestler at Oklahoma State University, Hendricks was a NCAA four-time All-American and a three-time Big 12 conference champion. When Johny was asked if he thought St-Pierre could take him down, he said:

“No. No, I don’t. I’ve wrestled all my life and if I really wanted to I could go into a fight and take him down. I just haven’t had the thrill of wanting to take somebody down. For some reason, just hitting someone in the face is a lot more exciting to me, and also to the crowd.”

Hendricks is delusional if he doesn't think GSP can take him down at will and repeatedly. The man has been outwrestled by far inferior grapplers before. I'm guessing he's just hyping his fight.

Funny stuff. Kos also wrestled since he was five. Gsp took him down. Hendriks will be eating jabs until he's on his back, then maybe gsp subs him to make a point Phone Post

I'd give Hendricks one more fight since it sounds like GSP vs Silva is a go. Perhaps the winner of Rory vs Penn. or Maia. Or Carlos! Phone Post

"GSP can't take me down"

Said every fighter ever, before getting dumped on their ass.

I think GSP would go down against Hendricks. It would be hard, but he would finish him off. Phone Post

In a wrestling match I don't doubt Hendricks would win, but in mma Georges will take him down at will. It's his speed, timing and athleticism that get him the takedown time and again. And I can see Hendricks being like a fish out of water on his back. All he has is a punchers chance against gsp Phone Post

everybody says that until they get into the cage with him.  Once people think "ok it's striking time" GSP takes them down... once they think "OK it's wrestling time" GSP punches them in the face.

I dont care how good of a collegiate or olympic wrestler you are... in mma GSP is gonna take you down or you're gonna let him punch you in the face and then take you down..

Rick Story took hendricks down... and Koscheck took him down.  GSP will certainly take him down.  He may not be able to keep him down or do it at will but GSP can certainly tire him out enough where his hands arent that big of a factor anymore.
