Hendricks skill sets tend to be listed as wrestling and boxing, may I suggest we have a strong candidate for exposure via glass legs?

Collegiate wrestling doesn't always translate perfectly over to MMA. Mark Munoz is my favorite example. Well it's not really that the collegiate wrestling isn't transferring well it's that Munoz chooses to use only his upper body strength. And is NOT a great MMA wrestler.

On the other spectrum you have guys like Rashad Evans, Jon Fitch, and Georges St. Pierre who were either piss-poor in college (Evans, Fitch) or had no organized experience (St. Pierre), yet, are dominating the MMA scene with their wrestling, MMA Wrestling, if you will.

The only fighters, of recent memory, to truly showcase world-class wrestling inside the Octagon as well as the NCAA Division I scene is Josh Koshcheck and Daniel Cormier. (A case can be made for Lesnar and Sonnen as well.)

As for my case against Hendrick's MMA-wrestling, he has yet to control a decent wrestler inside of the Octagon.
Thanks for clarifying.

I think I see what you are saying. You are not questioning the fighter's wrestling credentials. You are looking to see how effective the fighter's wrestling skills are in a Mixed Martial Arts setting.

Do you have a wrestling background? I'm not trying to discredit anything you posted. I thought the post was spot on.

I do not. I live in, apparently, the only ****ing city in Texas which high-school wrestling is not offered.

But I love me some grinders.

Nick Diaz is the easiest to sell. A lot of interest surrounding that fight after the Condit decision.

If that decision wouldn't have gone aginst him people would still be questioning who is the better fighter GSP or Diaz.
