I've rewatched some of the last GSP and Hendricks fights. IMO, Hendricks' weakness lies in his grappling. He can take anyone down, but couldn't do anything on the ground against top fighters such as Koscheck and Condit.
GSP's stand up defense is amazing. He made a high volume striker like Condit land only 2 significant kick (one that hurt GSP because the kick changed trajectory; something Hendricks doesn't have) on the standup. That's also while pushing the pace forward and not running backward. GSP will most likely make Hendricks frustrating by having him miss a lot.
Personally, out of any opponents GSP has had, Hendricks may be the most dangerous due to his left hand, but he's also the most finish-able for GSP via Submission due to him possibly being a weaker grappler than some of GSP's previous opponents.
