Hendricks is the uncrowned champ, in my eyes right now.

Maybe it's like Anderson Silva said...the crown weighs too heavy after a while. I thought Georges looked a little strung out...over trained maybe.

GSP said he's going to take some time off...I have a feeling he'll abdicate & leave for 18 months or so. This will set up Hendricks vs Condit for the title, potentially.

I believe the loss for Rory is a good thing. It will hopefully teach him that he has to engage. I believe the same could be said for GSP.
Thx for the honest assesment, Wavetar, esp. since you naturally were rooting for Georges.

Umm, see, this is where judging comes into it. I fully thought GSP won rounds 3 & 5, and badly lost round 2. You say GSP won round 2...so that's a big discrepancy between views.

It does come down to the first round. I gave it to Hendricks...apparently two judges gave it to GSP...probably based on the early takedown.

Johny was a little too relaxed IMO....in a rematch he could pressure more and do more G&P. We saw that he can take GSP down and had he not let him up he may have ended the fight or at least 10-8 him in the 4th.
