He completely out boxed him. I think we've seen more ground and pound from St-Pierre because he is using his most comfortable strategy against very very good fighters.
Also, Hendricks might win, in my opinion, only if he lands that fearful left hand. But I doubt GSP will lose to that. GSP has such a more impressive pedigree than Hendricks, he's better in every aspect minus one : the one punch power. Wich should not be a problem knowing how well prepared he is.
GSP by submission in the 4th round
Really, Matt Hughes? Has never KO'd anybody in his career, OK, maybe once. Hughes was strong bc he was a wrestler, but he was not fierce hitter. Koscheck, Alves, Hardy were all much better than Hughes in the striking department.
