Georges St-Pierre Believes He Knows Key To Defeating Johny Hendricks

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre isn’t sure when he will face Johny Hendricks, but all signs point to the two squaring off before 2013 ends.

However, St-Pierre’s boxing coach, the world-renowned Freddie Roach, believes the fighter already has the key to defeating Hendricks.

“We got the gameplan pretty much down already,” said Roach on Fight Hub TV. “We’re working on it. He’s always looking for that big shot. He’s a veteran wrestler, of course, a good wrestler, but he doesn’t even like to wrestle. He depends on that big left hand. He doesn’t even want to go to the ground too much. He’s not real difficult to figure out.”

Hendricks was a standout wrestler in college, but St-Pierre has been widely referred to as the best mat fighter in the division. As of lately, “Bigg Rigg” has used his hands to pick his opponents apart – outside of a decision win over Carlos Condit.

Do you agree with Roach’s thoughts, or do you think Hendricks is big enough, and strong enough, to withstand GSP’s relentless approach and take him down?
