Heavy Hands Episode Six: Analyzing GSP

Heavy-hands-itunes-1024x1024_medium

We're back. UFC 167 is right around the corner, and the man of the hour is the UFC's most dominant champion, Georges St-Pierre.

Corey and I spend the whole hour discussing the merits and drawbacks of GSP's style, as well as those of his opponent Johny Hendricks. GSP's striking and grappling are integrated into one complete style better than any other fighter in the UFC, with punches that flow perfectly into takedowns and guard passes, and keep opponents at bay on the feet. We both predict, unsurprisingly, that Hendricks will struggle mightily with the champ, but it's a scary matchup nonetheless because of the challenger's excellent wrestling credentials and powerful left hand.
