Carlos Condit Offers Up Thoughts On GSP-Johny Hendricks

Carlos Condit Offers Up Thoughts On GSP-Johny Hendricks

Carlos Condit knows both Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks quite well, as the former interim UFC welterweight champion has spent eight rounds inside the Octagon with the two.

Condit will look to get back on track Wednesday night when he faces Martin Kampmann at UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2, while GSP and Hendricks square off later this year at UFC 167.

Recently, “The Natural Born Killer” was asked his thoughts on St-Pierre vs. Hendricks.

“I think Johny Hendricks has a puncher’s chance. He’s obviously a big puncher. He’s got the power to make it a short night for GSP, but I feel like GSP is going to out-technique Johny Hendricks,” said Condit, in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. “I think his wrestling, and I’m not an expert on wrestling, but I think his wrestling is going to make the difference and Georges is going to be able to take him down and control the fight.”

Do you agree with Condit’s assessment of the bout? Will wrestling not play an important factor?
