Hammer_Down Posted December 30, 2012 Report Share Posted December 30, 2012 I just rewatched both these fights and realized just how much of Hendrick's striking is ducking his head down and throwing overhand punches charging forward. Thus far I don't think he has faced someone with advanced enough striking to punish him with uppercuts and punches while going backwards. Kampmann did have the credentials yes, but the fight didnt go nearly long enough to see him counter anything. Idk, GSP absorbs on average one hard shot every couple fights and is pretty skilled at punishing people who just try to headhunt. Yes, one by Hendricks will KTFO GSP just like everyone else, but people are going all goo goo over two fast finishes of Fitch and Kampmann to realize they were sandwiched with two split decision wins that would of gone horribly wrong if his opponents could strike.
