    we will probably see this fight sooner or later,it could be a good one ,I have Rory winning by having more offensive weapons ,and being more of a complete fighter .Though Hendricks has that big left hand.

    Rory's head movement is not great and we've all seen how he folds to adversity. Bad combination against someone like Bigg Rigg.

    Thiss.

    Rory quit in the Condit fight.

    Hendricks would crack him once and it would be a wrap.

    that's a tough call, but I'm going to have to go with Rory. I think both of them are the shiz, but I feel as if Rory just keeps getting better and better every time I see him fight.

    He gassed in that fight ,and fighting carlos condit in your 1st ufc fight is a tall order considering he was like 22.I think he has waaay more tools than hendricks.Hendricks has that big left hand and good wrestling thats it .Having said that ,it's usually enough.I think Rory has a decent reach advantage.I think if big rig doesnt land big ,he could be outstruck by many WW'S.Just having that big punch IMO Does not make him an elite strikers ,generally elite strikers have more tools ,he really isn't even a good boxer.A guy with a good chin and slick boxing would pick him apart.Diaz,Penn,Carlos,Rory, even Gsp, are all better strikers they just don't have as much pop.I know everyone says this ,but he really is a more finely tuned Josh Koscheck

    Yeah nobody every said him and a dude like Hendo are great strikers. However they are iron chinned beats with the most power in their hands in their own weight class and both have figured how to land their pumch successfully. They also are two guys with a wrestling base to rely on as well. And that was not Rorys first UFC fight btw.

    Theres No reason to believe Hendricks chin is Iron,not to be put in the same catagory as Hendo's Chin anyways.You are right it was HIS 2ND ,BUT STILL A BIG CHALLENGE CONSIDERING HIS AGE AND EXPERIENCE.IMO HE WOULD BE THE FAVORITE IN THE REMATCH,AND HE HAS IMPROVED A LOT SINCE THEN.I FIND JOHNY HENDRICKS TO BE PRETTY ORDINARY.I WATCHED THE RICK STORY FIGHT THE OTHER DAY,AND HE REALLY HAS NOT PUT ANY NEW WEAPONS IN HIS TOOLBOX SINCE THEN.VERY SELDOMLY KICKS ,NO KNEES,ELBOWS.AND HIS MMA WRESTLING IS GOOD ,BUT NOT GREAT.Koscheck with a beard.I THINK HE'S GONNA TAKE A LOT OF SHOTS AGAINST CONDIT,THEN WE WILL SEE WHAT HIS CHINS LIKE.My guess is that once he starts getting tagged he reverts back to his wrestling,which might be the best way to approach Condit anyways.

    hendricks confessed to being kod in his first amateur fight, i doubt he has a solid chin but it should be enough to shrug off rorys attempts at striking

    Didn't he confess to being knocked during one of the first times he trained?
