 Hendricks told Sherdog Radio: "It's not that it's more difficult but, it's a little bit more dangerous, you know what I'm saying? Like I said, you don't know which punch will be the last.

"With GSP, you know where he's going to want to take it, you know he's not going to want to stand with you. He's going to want to go in there set up his jab, throw a few leg kicks, or he's going to get you to the perimeter, to that black line, and you know a double leg is coming. Ellenberger, he is going to try to knock you out before he takes you down."

ok, but Hendricks is more likely to defeat Ellenberger than GSP.

Can we admit that Hendricks only chance at deafeating GSP is one punch? we know he has nothing for him. he will get trounced when it goes to the ground. he will get outstruck on the feet. he will get taken down at will. he won't initiate the clinch (and if he does, GSP is better). The only chance at winning is his left hand in the first 2 minutes

I'll be honest I'm startling to dislike Hendricks the same way I dislike Weidman. A lot of talk and complaints from guys who don't get title shots bc they aren't big draws. Don't get me wrong I think they both deserve it, but just shut up keep beating people and it will come. They're both very good I'm just tired of hearing them say it,and how they think they're the ones to defeat the two best fighters of this generation and it's just no fair that no one gives them a chance.

Is there any good Greco guys at WW?

I don't think we've seen much clinch work from GSP Phone Post

Ellenberger is more dangerous but gsp is harder the harder man to beat.
I wonder how this fight will go if Hendricks"s hay maker doesn't connect? Phone Post

Yessir, and Ellengberger is a solid contender. Beat him and your claim to the throne is even better. Don't get the whole "I'm waiting for the belt fight" from guys who are just on the cusp of being established as contenders. Keep winning and they'll have to give you a shot...and if you lose in the process, you weren't really cut out for the title anyways. People demanding too much too soon.

It's much more enjoyable rooting for a humble character than a cocky one.

I liked him a lot, but now I just want to see him get his ass whooped! Phone Post

This.  

Hendricks needs to pipe down a little.  Look at GSP vs Koscheck II and compare that to Hendricks vs Koscheck.  Pump the brakes there Johny.

Even though Hendricks isn't getting the shot at the title, I'm really happy he's staying active and competing. This is going to be an exciting match up.

He's doing what he's supposed to be doing, hyping his next fight.

Basically, he knows GSP is fighting Diaz first and then him (assuming GSP and Hendricks both win) because Diaz is a bigger draw than he is. By the time he fights GSP, he wants to make sure people have heard of him - if nothing else, it means he can negotiate a bigger purse for the title fight.

Its good for him, for the UFC, and even for GSP (since if GSP beats Diaz he'll probably fight the winner of Hendricks-Ellenberger) for him to build up his fight with Ellenberger, getting both his name and Ellenberger in the public eye.

I enjoy the comments about how he knows where GSP would take the fight. I'm willing to bet every opponent GSP has had the past 4 years thinks exactly the same yet nobody seems to be able to stop the jab and double leg that they "know is coming" Phone Post

"It's better for people to think you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt".

There's a growing list of guys in the UFC that need to learn to just shut up. One Chael Sonnen is almost more than enough already. I have gone from a big fan on Hendricks to hoping he loses his next fight just so he doesn't have anything to talk about anymore.

Hendricks sounds really stupid here. Yes we know GSP likes to take people down. But If for some reason he can't, he's fine standing up. He displayed it more in his old fights like Hughes 2 and Jay Hieron (way far back), but Im sure he would have no problem standing with Hendricks. Hell except for the high kick GSP's striking was looking pretty fine against Condit.
