Hendricks really has to go balls out right away and hope he lands the left if he doesn't its all over. GSP could get caught but he is way to smart to get beaten by a one trick pony.
If you look back at Hendricks other fights he has gone the distance with good wrestlers and gets tired. That and the guys he KO'd are not the most impressive fighters.
Hendricks has power in both hands. What people have to understand is that Hendricks is still a young fighter in terms of experience, he picked the sport after he graduated from college/university. So no **** his BJJ is gonna look like **** compared to a guy like Hendricks (Condit has better BJJ than GSP imo). Knocking out top 5 fighters in your division should not be overlooked no matter how you twist it. He got tired against Pierce and Koscheck but those guys are a pain in the ass to fight in a 15 minute fight. He's worked on his cardio for this fight to not gas out like those fights. Hendricks with his wrestling is more than a 'one trick pony'. If he was one, Condit would have beat him easily.
