    4x all American. I’d bet my bank account he makes weight

    Even if Jhonny wins, he wont keep the belt for long. He’s not discipline and gasses too easily, to be a sustained champ, u must be OCD like GSP. Mark my words

    Mike youre an idiot. He went 5 rounds with GSP!! He has some sick cardio. I can tell youre a MMA fan of the highest caliber. Dumbass.

      Gethelp: Hendricks does not have sick cardio, he looked gassed in the 4th and 5th rounds vs. GSP, even after GSP was concussed in the 1st round. GSP took a beating, but especially the 2nd and 4th rounds, and not to mention those 4 or 5 savage elbows GSP ate to the side of the head in the 1st round, and GSP still had better cardio. Luckily for Hendricks he landed those elbows or GSP would have motored through him. Hendricks cuts 50+ lbs to fight at WW, it doesn’t matter if he was a sick wrestler, when u starve and dehydrate ur body of 50lbs or more, your cardio is severely shortened. In all of Hendricks fights, he fades in the 3rd and beyond, like he did vs. Pierce, Koscheck, GSP and especially Condit. Just like Aldo, fighting in a weight class to have the size and strength advantage, means you’re sacrificing a significant amount of cardio. Hendricks has 10-15 mins MAX to win, or he gets destroyed in the championship rounds. Assuming Lawler wil have the better as tank, bc if we go by looks, Hendricks looked string out, while Lawler looked good. Not to mention and extra 2 hours to cut weight, while ur opponent gets an extra 2 hours to hydrate and eat.

    Why does he have the nutritionist with him? That guy is supposed to be so knowledgable and and expert, so how did Hendricks miss weight? Well, that guy failed!

    Hendricks looked like he was a meth user, and looked like he was jonesing. Anyone else think he looked smaller than when he fought GSP, or is it just me?!?

    Hendricks better hope he finishes the fight within 15 or less, or he’s going to lose.
