How will the GSP-Hendricks fight unfold? Please tell us below in the comments section.

Trainer Firas Zahabi, on “Cheap Seats,” discussing how Georges St. Pierre would approach a bout against Johny Hendricks:

“I think Georges has to neutralize his left hand. He absolutely has to get away, and it’s not going to be an easy thing to do. We’re going to have to put our heads together and try to figure out what to do. It’s not about just being defensive, that’s for sure. You can’t sit there and hope a left hand doesn’t land. You have to put your opponent on defense. That’s the safest way to win a fight: always be the guy who’s attacking and force your opponent into a defensive mind frame and a defensive mode. That’s the best. We’re going to have to look at Johny’s fights and review him and try to dissect him and see what would be a good approach.”
