Is he really a knockout artist? he's only finished his opponent in 4 of his last 12 fights. Is his power over hyped?

Joe rogan hype up,( I wish Joe would commentate my sex, he has the ability to turn anyone into a super hero(che mills) I saw him go 3 rds with a guy who had never fought before, of coarse it was JH first fight but raw power would have disposed of this kid before rd 3.

I still don't understand why people hate him. He complained about a decision most people felt he won. Besides that I seriously don't understand it. Plenty of fighters deserve hate, I have yet to see one example of Hendricks deserving any hate.

I'm not speaking on anyone in general. He is pretty hated by a number of fans everywhere. I didn't mean to direct it at you or anyone specific.

Also it's just "to" not "too"  lol!

You don't call your friends dickheads or something similar in jest? Like I said, lighten up.

Did I triple post that or delete some other comment by mistake? I thought I deleted the duplicate post but I still see 2?

I was just making sure I didn't delete a post of your by mistake. Because it shows I deleted 1 post but 2 still remain. So I was hoping I didn't delete one of yours by mistake and if I did I wanted you to know it was a mistake and not intentional if that was the case.

Also sorry for calling you a dickhead and saying you were acting like a bitch, you just seemed like were responding negatively to all my post. Still, shouldn't have done it.

As for the original question I think Johny has legit KO power. He hurt Robbie in a couple rounds with some nice shots and he didn't seem to really be loading up like he did vs some other guys. I think it might have been because Robbie had a clear speed advantage and Johny was only having success when he got a bit more technical. He was also getting hit pretty clean even early on. I thought during that 2nd round Robbie kept his attention with a handful of solid punches. Which is why 10-8 round for Hendricks seems criminal to me.

hendricks power isn't in question, it just gets a lot harder to knock people out the higher you go up the rankings. he isn't fighting mugs who are just going to walk straight onto his left hand from here on out so it stands to reason his KO% will decrease.

hate is a strong word OU. i just find him annoying because he bitched like he'd been the victim of MMA's all time worst robbery after the GSP fight when in reality it was just one of a million fights that went one way but could've gone the other and his beard looks ridiculous. occasional mild annoyance is a long way from hatred.

Overall I have seen pretty strong feelings of dislike. Not really here, but some here. But in general there is a large number of fans that really don't like him and act like he is the most annoying fighter in the UFC. Outside of the GSP fight, I don't understand it. But he has gotten hate quicker then even Jon Jones.

that'll be american fans getting curiously territorial about their college wrestlers i reckon.

i don't know who oklahoma states big rivals are in wrestling but i'll wager a large proportion of the 'hate' comes from people affiliated with that university.

No that isn't the case, there aren't very many college wrestling fans really and Oklahoma State doesn't have a real rival outside of Oklahoma but it's not a hostile rivalry.
But there doesn't seem to be a distinction between American and non-American fans with Johny. Hate coming from both. He seemed to seriously rub a good number of people the wrong way after the GSP fight, or that is what the fans are clinging to anyways as far as I can tell. How someone has the nerve to call Hendricks a whiner and then turn around and be a fan of Bisping is beyond me. Just picking on Bisping there, but I see a good number of fighters get far more respect from fans then Hendricks for reasons I don't understand.

let me say I assume the dude can knock the shit out of you, but he is not mike tyson. On of my friends says the dude was a beast even in HS. Shit gets out of hand real quick though, I just heard he is well over 200 lbs before fight prep and unless the dude has lead legs he isnt that big, I stood 2 ft from him and looked down to him and I am only 6ft. Also he seemed real cool but like anything hearing too much can alter perceptions. I remember hearing an interview after we spoke and thinking I liked him less than when I heard him in person. I dont see any reason some would hate the guy though.

I suppose it takes a lot less to polarise opinion these days. Mike Tyson had to bite peoples ears off and threaten to eat peoples kids before anyone was particularly offended or thought he'd gone too far.

I don't feel strongly enough either way to hate Johny Hendricks though in saying that, I don't think Jon Jones has done anything to warrant being hated either. All he's really done is get pushed by the UFC as a transcendent star and be exposed as not really having a great deal of charisma imo. Great fighter, but he talks like the 12 year old little shit who's just beat you 5-0 at FIFA on Xbox live. If that passes for a marketable personality then as a species, we're in trouble.

I don't like Hendricks much. 

I remember in school, some teachers would describe class on the first day like this: "everybody has an A+ grade on day one, if you keep it depends on your own actions".

Same principle applies in a lot of instances, like with Johnny.  I started out not having an opinion, but what I feel about him changes based on the things he says, similar, but to a far lesser extent to how I felt about Jon Jones exactly 3 years ago.  You say things I like, you keep your good grade, you say things I don't, the grade begins to drop.  I don't like what Johnny gives sometimes, more to dislike then like. 

It's why some of my favorite fighters are generally soft spoken guys, guys who always let their actions in the cage or ring do their talking for them before their mouth.  If a lot of guys I'm not a big fan of today just shut up with the BS in the past, I'd probably not dislike them at all.

I think he has very similar responses that Dan Henderson would have. Dan rubs some the wrong way but most people love the guy. I don't know if it his tone of voice comes off as more annoying? I can't put my finger on it really. He has similar responses as a lot of guys, as far as I can tell.
Again I still think he is very similar to DC as well. Who also gets hate, not really around here but from a number of MMA fans.
Also using GDP as an example, he is a fan of Josh Barnett. So that makes the criticism all that more confusing to me. Same goes for people that might support Jones, Bisping, Sonnen or a number of guys.

I like Johny, I would consider myself a fan, but he isn't one of my favorites. I actually found myself pulling for Robbie during the fight but I have always enjoyed watching Robbie fight. But I seem to be stuck in the role of Hendricks defender because I don't understand the reaction really.

Also I get a response similar to what I got here with the, people can hate they want, but I have yet to here any specifics other then his response to the GSP fight. There are some people out there that just have a tone or "vibe" that people pick up on. In that case I understand it would be difficult to really pinpoint. There is obviously something, because a good number of people have the same feeling about him. I'm just missing the boat, I'm not picking up on it.

personally I hate Hendrix because of his beard. I hate all fighters that grow a massive beard to protect their chin except for maybe Big Country cause I love watching a fat slob knocking people out.

I also can't stand that stupid rodent face Hendrix makes after a big win. I always see it in UFC ads for his matches. Hate him!

I hate Jon Jones but dislike Hendricks. I don't think Hendricks is anywhere near as bad as Jones.
