Easily... Hendricks is one of the more decorated wrestlers in MMA, we saw some of it earlier on in his career, but he a good wrestler no doubt... Anyone who can hang with Kos like he did has good wrestling... His fight with Story was odd, doubt we'd see a repeat of that if they re-matched...
but the problem is that once you get Carlos down he is very dangerous off his back. always looking for subs, to get up or reverse... Someone like Fitch, Askren, or even Kos could easily play the takedown, top control, to UD approach on Condit imo... We really dont know how good Jon's ground game is, but no doubt he can get Carlos there...
I see him trying to stand with Carlos.... Which is very risky. Carlos is solid technically and will come after him with his hands, kicks, knees, etc... but Jon has serious power... beyond guys like Kos or Ellenburger... He flattened Fitch and Kampman in seconds... the distance he covers and the way he gets his full body behind his shots... Reminds me of Fedor or Hendo in a way.
