Johnny Hendricks on Georges St. Pierre: He’s never faced a true wrestler with power

Johnny Hendricks recently spoke with MMA H.E.A.T. and had some rather interesting things to say, claiming that although Georges St. Pierre is going around saying that he’s never fought someone like himself, the same is true the other way around.

Reporters also pointed out that Georges had also claimed or already knew what Hendricks’ game plan would be. Hendricks seemed somewhat irritated by the statement and with conviction continued on to reveal his entire gameplan stating:

“I’ll tell you my game plan, I’m gonna hit you with my left, if that doesn’t work I’m gonna try to take you down, if that doesn’t work I’m gonna find a way to win Georges”

“One thing that he cannot prepare for is my heart, my speed and my determination to win.”

Feels like we’re in the beginning stages of a solid rivalry and a potentially huge fight between the two best Welterweights in the world. Only the difference between these proclamations and those of St. Pierre’s previous opponents, is that many fans of MMA  truly believe what Hendricks is saying and also believe that he might actually possess the skills required to defeat the long reigning Welterweight champion.

    Not totally true. Koscheck has pretty much the same wrestling accolades as Hendricks and also has some serious punching power.

    In fact, Hendricks better watch that fight if his plan is to "try to hit him with his left hand" because Kos was trying to hit GSP with his overhand right the whole fight…didn't work out so well.

    And Hendricks has never faced the athleticism and pace that Georges can put on him.

    I love JH. I think he is a great guy and has real power. GSP on the other hand is a more complete fighter. He is extremely agile, fast and technical. I'd root for GSP.
