Hendricks. Someone has to stop Greg Jackson!


Sarcasm or are you a Dana White puppet?

Point fighting is boring to me. It's OK if you like it. I just don't. I would argue the problem with internation wrestling is it's dominated by a Greg Jackson perspective. But hey, what do I know; I bought Hopkins v Tarver.

No, my point was it's not Greg Jackson you have issue with.  1. Go look up Jackson MMA fighters  who consistently finish fights or get in all out battles. Jon Jones, Carlos Condit, Cub Swanson, Donald Cerrone, Tim Kennedy, Travis Browne, and John Dodson all come to mind. Hell Leonard Garcia closes his eyes and swings when he fights and he trains daily at Jackson MMA.  2. GSP doesn't train with Jackson, he trains in Montreal with Firas Zahabi at Tristar.  Jackson comes in more more than the week of a fight and corners him.   
 
If you don't like point fighting that fine, then say you don't like GSP's style but this ragging on Greg Jackson is dumb and simply parroting Dana White.

I thought that there would be more lingering Hendricks vs Churella resentments. I'm glad I was wrong.

I was there for that win and also there at National Duals where Hendricks pinned him and Perry threw away all his gear (had passes to be down on the floor).  if you're only gonna win one match against a guy I think I'd want it to be the finals

I'm leaning towards Hendricks but GSP has great takedown defense.
If GSP pulls out a win it will be a decision, If Hendricks pulls out a win it will be by submission.
I really don't think either fellow wins by KO.

Hendricks. Because GSP is boring. He seldom finishes anymore. Doesn't even look like he tries to finish.

With that said, I wouldn't bet against GSP.

Went to the mall yesterday and saw a poster of this fight at the movie theater. They are showing it at the movies live.  Throwback to the close circuit fights back in the 70's.

Pretty cool.

I'm going to catch the fights at a Wings place walking distance from our house.
