Not necessarily though.
I think Dong would have been a tough matchup for GSP if he was still around. he has great judo, a great clinch game, good standup (although he doesn't hit nearly as hard as Hendricks) But he would still give GSP problems in the standup, especially if GSP tried taking him down.
I think Dong would edge out a close 48-47 UD or maybe even a TKO if GSP wasn't sharp.
Bad cardio, sloppy striking IMO.
I'm enjoying his reinvention but he looked like Leonard Garcia tonight.
He needs to balance his aggression with his old game.
Where was the crane kicks at?
