JOHN WAYNE PARR SAYS GEORGES ST. PIERRE CAN KO JOHNY HENDRICKS
"GSP will dominate, maybe even knock Hendricks out 4th or 5th." -John Wayne Parr, a kickboxing champ who has trained with GSP for a couple of weeks to help mimic Big Rig's striking style.
"Hendricks scored plenty of take downs but didn't really do anything on top. If he takes GSP down he will be in trouble... Hendricks has done well to get where he is, but i thought koscheck beat him, and GSP is another level" -John Wayne Parr
"Condit rocked him more then once. GSP will wear him down, then KO." -John Wayne Parr
"Hardest thing about copying Hendricks striking for GSP is throwing left swings like a caveman with no style." -John Wayne Parr
"George St Pierre calls his penis "The Diamond", it's a girls best friend." -John Wayne Parr, I thought I'd leave you guys with an awkward tweet to end this segment.
