UFC Quick Quote: Johny Hendricks is more dangerous than 'one trick pony' Dan Henderson

Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit is speaking incredibly highly of his upcoming opponent, top contender Johny Hendricks in advance of their UFC 158 co-main event bout this Saturday night. Find out why he believes Hendricks is more dangerous than "Dangerous Dan" below.


"There are some similarities there but I think the difference is Hendo is towards the end of his career, he's not as versatile as he used to be. Ultimately he kind of is a one-trick pony. Hendricks, he does have that in his arsenal, but he has a lot of other things. He's still athletic, he still moves really well. He's a more dangerous version of the one-punch, KO wrestler that Hendo is."

--Johny Hendricks and Dan Henderson have some similarities in their fighting styles, insane punching power paired with amazing wrestling credentials. But former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit tells Bleacher Report that "Big Rig" is much more dangerous than Henderson due to his youth and diversity of his attack. If you saw Henderson trying his darndest...and failing to knock Machida out at UFC 157 a couple weeks back, then "The Natural Born Killer" might have a point. Condit will be squaring off against Hendricks in the co-main event of UFC 158 this Saturday night (March 16, 2013) from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Will Condit be able to overcome a fighter he deems more lethal than perhaps the scariest knockout artist in the promotion today?
