    GSP will succeed IMO. He waits for people to commit to a strike, before going for the takedown (counter-wrestling?) Hendricks has no technical standing ability beyond his left power, so GSP will jab him, get Hendricks to aggressively come forward for that knockout, and when he does he's gonna be taken down for another easy points decision.

    As others said, we've seen this before.

    In regards to wrestling to decisions? Judges should really stop giving points just for a takedown, unless it was a high impact one (like a suplex, or something similar). Unless they do something with it, it should mean nothing.

    The one thing about Conduit is that I hated the fact he was happy to give up his superior range and reach just so he could keep going for a flying knee bar finish. Its what allowed Hendricks to take him down.
