Former UFC interim welterweight titleholder Carlos Condit gives Johny Hendricks a "puncher's chance" against champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167 on Nov. 16.

I worry that GSP's training has been geared a little too much towards mastering an outmaneuvering and controlling fighting style which is based on a little too much faith in his ability to avoid short range striking exchanges. Hendricks might actually allow fans to finally see if GSP is capable of using short ranged power shots when he needs to. Similarly, Hendricks is also probably more likely to create a more back and forth ground fight, where we can see if GSP has improved his submission game much since his disappointing string of failed submission attempts against Dan Hardy. GSP said something along these lines already, that a better fighter is more likely to force him to actually be able to show what he can do.

Not exactly a shining endorsement :P. That's pretty much the most conservative thing he could have possibly said and still be taken seriously. We know Hendricks isn't going to try to grind out a decision, though that's not to say it's impossible, it's just that if it happens, it's not going to be because it's Hendrick's strategy from the start. Crazy things happen in fights, and a bad initial strategy can suddenly become viable based on changing circumstances (like injuries, or one fighter blowing a lot of gas without getting a finish)..
