GSP did way better than Hendricks against Condit and Kos. So the answer to this thread is no.

I don't think GSP's been the same after the surgery. Still great, but not quite as great. I do think Hendricks is better now and very possibly has been for a year or two. Prime vs. prime I'd still take GSP.

His current 100% is not as good as before. It's quite obvious, if you pay attention to his fights, post-ACL surgery

Agree with everything you said but i need to correct you : Hendricks didn't KO Kos, he won a very close split decision if i remember correctly.

Yup hendricks beating kos and Fitch after GSP took their souls clearly means he's better.

I wouldn't say GSP took Condits soul, but he clearly dominated him... Did Hendricks?

People act like hendricks is the second coming, why?Since he had a step up in competition, so his last six figures starting with Pierce, he has been involved in four decisions, three of which were splits. Oh and one of those split decisions was a loss, so.....

No. He wasn't even better than him when they fought. GSP edged 3 rounds and Hendricks dominated the other 2, he can think what he wants but he lost the MMA fight. Hard to call him the better man when he lost.

Hendricks is either a liar or an excuse maker.

Says he'll knock out GSP, doesn't, then says he wasn't trying to. Then says he went 70%and that it was the hand wrappings fault.

Meanwhile Gsp actually has a reason for him slowing down and lacking his explosiveness, you know, that major knee surgery he had and the rehab after, but he didn't use it.

No, NO and NO. GSP of old before his ACL surgery ruins Hendricks. Easy 50-45 decision. You can clearly see GSP's athletism, explosiveness, strength and agility clearly regressed after he came back. GSP of UFC 100 and before ruins Hendricks.

I don't know why a lot of people think KO'ing someone is more dominant than any decision. The fact that GSP was able to go in & dominate all the great fighters he fought every round is more impressive than a flash KO.

GSP only lost to Serra because he was so distracted from his father dying 2 days before the fight.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Dana said he thought GSP won once he went back and rewatched the fight. People's opinions in the heat of the moment aren't always accurate.
