Going into his world title fight with Georges St-Pierre, Johny Hendricks won't be satisfied with just a win, he wants to make a statement versus the most dominant welterweight champion of all-time:

While St-Pierre's jab is an incredible weapon, as well, Hendricks thinks it will pale in comparison to his power punches.

"I will bite on my mouthpiece and eat a jab to land a right or a left hand on his jaw line," Hendricks said. "That's the difference. Punch me in the face, I'll punch you twice as hard.

"When I'm in there, my goal is to break someone's jaw. Let them forget who they are that night. Let them wake up the next morning and go, 'What the hell happened?' That's my goal every fight."

Like Weidman, who shocked the world with his knockout win over Silva, Hendricks believes his attitude will prove another strength. He respects St-Pierre, a man who is certain to be a UFC Hall of Famer and may very well be the greatest welterweight of all time. But "Bigg Rigg" has no fear of the French-Canadian champ.

"Give 'em respect because they have the belt, but he's just a person," Hendricks said of St-Pierre. "I can beat anybody at any given time, and that's sort of the mentality that you've got to have when you're facing somebody with the belt.

I wonder if koscheck had that same mentality of take one to land one? A broken orbital and months on the shelf later showed that wasn't the best strategy for him. Phone Post 3.0

As a Canadian fan of MMA, I would like nothing more than for the WW title to change hands. I'm bored of George Sport Pierre.. I like "FIGHTERS" not "winning the sporting event by exploiting the rules" athletes.

 

Go Hendricks....

 

Use this to visualize;

I'm not rooting for Hendricks but a wrestler whose fallen in love with his standup is about the worst mentality to have going in against gsp. Hughes, Fitch, kos, all wanted to beat him on the feet and got schooled because of it. Phone Post 3.0

It's a toned down version of the "I'm trying to kill my opponent" routine

"a wrestler who has fallen in love with his standup"

Half of his last 4 fights he KO'd the other guy in less than 2 mins. his fight against Condit he dumped him on his ass many, many times.

This is true. Mixing it up with condit was a smart strategy and one that showed he's a real threat if he does the same against gsp.

But there's still no doubt his preferred way to win is by knockout so it will be interesting to see how much he really plans to stand against gsp. Phone Post 3.0

After he realized he couldn't ko condit that's all he had. Really think he's gonna ko GSP. I don't think so!! GSP will school him whatever way he wants Phone Post 3.0

JH has had almost no hype. He's had to scratch his way to this title shot and he earned it.

Hendricks by superior wrestling.

 

Don't worry, I'll be taking bets 2 weeks before. This time without any gray areas.

My goal is to raise my children to be responsible adults, and to positively impact the people in my life.

I guess breaking someone's jaw is a good fall back on that.

You guys need to get off this shitty Hendricks train, he has 3 KOs in his career and now he's the second coming of Tyson? He couldn't ko Condit and let's be honest, Condit deserved to win that fight. Gsp will litterly make this southern 'Merican hillbilly hick shit through a colostomy bag when he's done with him. How many times has Hendricks made a legend throw in the towel? That's what I thought, fuck you guys who say gsp will lose to this second tier one trick pony. Time to face reality. Phone Post 3.0
