    For all the hype behind Hendricks, I mean really look at the guys record. He either gets the one punch KO or wins a toss up decision, with a loss to Rick Story mixed in. He's a fun guy to watch, but if he actually fights GSP, once the fight goes past the 2 minute mark he doesn't really have a chance of winning anymore.

    Ya it's hard to argue with the guys record, but he doesn't really present a unique challenge to GSP and he isn't going to really sell a fight. I think Diaz is just a better legacy fight for GSP, and while his chance of beating GSP is low as well at least he presents a unique style. Hendricks is just south paw Kos, a little more power, a little worse grappling.

    Not trying to take anything away from Ellenberger because that was a nasty knee he landed, but wasnt this fight like 2 days after Jakes dad passed away? if you are not mentally in a fight you can get hurt and this proved it, i mean this was the first time he had been finished in over 10 years.

    Not really, he got his title shot, he got his ass kicked, no reason to see that again. His wins all came in the same lame ass way. He never looked any better than he did when he got his title shot so what would justify another title shot?

    Could make Rory vs Hendricks and Kos vs Condit. It seems as if Rory is becoming the UFC's boy and they will probably give him what he wants.

    shields would get kilt... Hendricks should fight condit and the winner fights Gsp after he beats diaz fairly easy..

    That's 4 guys who weren't in the top 25, and then he beat a top 10 in Thiago Alves. He then had a draw with BJ Penn, who didn't crack the top 10 yet, as he just KO'ed Matt Hughes, and then he got KO'ed by Hendricks.

    Hendricks, on the other hand, is 14-1 (9-1 in the UFC), is on a 5 fight win streak, with his last 3 being all top 5 opponents in Fitch, Koscheck and Martin Kampann. Two of those he KO'ed.

    To me that's much more impressive than Fitch's record.

    People can predict that GSP is going to beat Hendricks, or going to kill Hendricks, or whatever, but that still does not change the fact that Hendricks is the most deserving contendor to the title in any single division period.
    Well said.
