hendricks first 5 rounder and he did fine in the championship rounds vs the king of championship rounds

hendricks is the one who`s improving every single fight while george hasnt looked nearly as good since the surgery layoff. other than being physically better prepared i dont see gsp making any effective changes.

he`s not going to implement anything wrestling wise that will surprise hendricks. striking wise he may find ways to land jabs and leg kicks better but at this point in his career it seems like the biggest change from george fight to fight is that his strikes are slower and less powerful. if both guys figure out how to land better going in to the rematch it favors hendricks big time. he hits a lot harder and he just needs to find 1-4 openings whereas gsp needs to create openings over and over

hendricks battered gsps knees in the clinch and also threw knees and uppercuts to make george hesitate on the shot. confidence has to be on hendricks side in the rematch and thats important when youre talking about a home run hitter. imo confidence that you can land on a guy is much different than being confident you can out wrestle them etc. imo the confidence will be very big for hendricks striking

unless gsp is capable of coming in physically much better shape then i think he gets stopped in the first 3. i dont see anything technically that gsp could realistically change that would be the difference

That was clear bullshit. He gave it his all and was done in the 5th and GSP was starting to destroy the sheit out of him. GSP took all Hendricks had to offer and didn't stop coming. True champion heart.

St. Pierre defeats Hendricks for the 2nd time more decisively.

I could give a shit about this rematch.

If gsp wants time off, fine. While he's away another contender will make his way up.
