    Hendricks is still top five and Gastelum should be nowhere near contention.

    Hendricks vs. Dong would better.

    If Dong came in prepared to grapple that could actually be super interesting.

    And if Dong 2.0 showed up against a Hendricks looking to prove a point and strike because of his last fight that would be crazy entertaining.

    Lots of interesting matchups for Johny but I think that guy who beat GSP is long gone. I see him getting subbed by Kelvin

    Kelvin couldn't beat one footed Woodley or Magny, he's not subbing Johny.

    Hate using this word but I think Kelvin is overrated, to a large degree. A lot of his hype came from smashing Ellenberger.

    Ellenberger, Story, Hall are all very beatable but very tough guys. If you can beat those 3 you definitely have some serious skill especially considering how young he was during all those wins.

    He has a whole career ahead of him and is already putting it all together and dressing it all up alot better than most fighters his age.

    The hype is his future and potential not what he has accomplished so far.

    You act like he was healthy in that Woodley fight and losing to Magny in a barn burner like that and out cardioing him at that is nothing to be ashamed of. Both guys have a huge upside in the Welterweight division.

    Hendricks is done. Robbie stole his soul and Wonderboy proved it.

    For starters, I don't think he beat Story at all and the majority of media scorers agreed with me. Ellenberger is really not a very good fighter anymore and that's a shame because he used to be very, very good. He hasn't looked great in a very long time. He has lost five of six and the only win was against a shot Koscheck. Hall is good but not great, and very unreliable.

    He was unhealthy because he lacks discipline and couldn't keep his weight under control. It was his own fault and I would argue Woodley was much more affected by his shattered foot than Kelvin's bad weight cut.

    I'm not saying he's terrible, I just think Johny is still one of the best guys in the world and runs through him.

    Hendricks fell pretty quick, I blame USADA. Anyways he should fight Woodley.

    I think him just going from being the worst on the ultimate fighter to where he's at has made him a little over hyped. I think he just did so well when he was suppose to be garbage that people built him over his worth. He was the underdog in every tuf fight but has had the most success which to me doesn't make him overrated.

    Hendricks refused random testing with GSP. He can't refuse when USADA asks.

    Woodley is garaunteed top 5 and he went to a split decision in a very close fight.

    And like I said he is highly touted by many because of his bright looking future not his mediocre accomplishments so far.
