Hendo could connect on GSP, and well if Hendo connected his right flush on anyone from HW down I think he'd knock them out, but he really telegraphs that punch and gets himself off balance to the point where people can shoot and take him down easier than one would think when you take into account Hendo's wrestling accomplishments. (See Kondo, Busta, Ninja fights) So saying GSP could hang with Hendo in the wrestling aspect of a fight really isn't as you said the dumbest statement you've read all day.
He was comparing GSP to Rampage that's the dumbest statement i was referring to. I see your point about the telegraphed right hand, but do you think GSP could honestly hold Henderson down? Plus who's to say Henderson would be the one trying to stand with him? I think Henderson could hold GSP down, but not Vice-versa.

I didn't see the comparison to Rampage, thats a bit far fetched I'll agree.

Rush might even be the more well-rounded fighter, even as they're both well-rounded competitors, and if they fought at the same weight St. Pierre might be able to pull Hollywood down, but Georges' greatest threat is a big punch to the chin. I would love to see such a fight, and because St. Pierre would probably be the underdog, I'd bet on a St. Pierre decision. And with St. Pierre stepping up to fight a guy who usually thrashes larger competition, St. Pierre is the winner either way, and if he pulled it off, his legend only expands.

GSP. Too much speed, stamina and overall striking skill.

IMO Henderson is in the top 10 all time might be top 5. If you look at his record there isn't anyone who has beaten and fought tougher competition. The man has never had an easy fight and watching him fight Big Nog both times really gave me a ton of respect for that guy. And to be in the ring with as many big names as he has and never have been KO'd is even more impressive. You can call him decision Dan but the guy fights top caliber fighters all the time. Palhrees or whatever his name is was probably the least well known fighter he fought. And Henderson with good cardio would really put GSP through the cleaner i see it ending by a KO. And i agree people do underrate henderson. I really wish he could have fought Silva again.

Uh, Alves does not have the power of Henderson. At all. GSP might indeed be quicker. But quick enough to avoid Hendo for 5 rounds? In the clinch, Hendo would beat him up. On the ground, Hendo would beat him up. Standing? GSP would need to outpoint him. Only way he takes it.

And in any case, he is an olympian greco roman wrestler, and more talented than GSP in that regard.

I see Dan in a wheel chair if it were to happen again but, that is just me.
