Johny Hendricks has been on one of the most impressive winning streaks in Welterweight history. Though some of his wins were close decisions (Condit, Koscheck), he has proven that he is more than deserving of a title shot against Georges St.Pierre. Hendricks’ deadly left hand combined with his All-American wrestling background have proven to be a lethal combination. Hendricks’ conditioning is the primary concern heading into his title bout. Hendricks has regularly tired in the latter rounds, and with championship fights scheduled for 5 rounds, his conditioning will be put to test.

    Weird not seeing GSP at the top.

    Ellenberger should fight Matt Brown or Saffiedine next. Him versus Lombard would be sick too.

      Welterweight is a stacked division, but yes, not seeing GSP at the top takes some getting used to.

      Matt Brown might be facing some disciplinary issues after his comments on Women’s MMA. I am guessing Joe Silva will put him up against someone not in the Top 10 now (Brandon Thatch), or give Brown a fighter nobody wants to face (Lombard).
