GSP fights better against heavy hitters because they either plant their feet and/or come barging in and that makes them an easy target for the takedown. Hardy, Condit, Serra (2nd time round), BJ Penn (in some respects) and Alves all have KO ability in both hands... Yet none of them could finish him.

Ellenberger and Hendricks have the best shot as both are good wrestlers with KO power. As stated earlier I don't see either of them winning a decision, but they are both very capable of turning GSP's lights out. I think the main benefit of their wrestling credentials is the ability to keep the fight standing longer to land that shot.
Ellenberger has been beaten by both Kampmann and Condit who are ranked above him. I don't see him as too much of a threat imo.
Yeah dont think anyone is capable of decisioning GSP in that division... Hendricks would have to win inside the first 2 rounds for sure.
NONE of the guys you have mentioned grizzly have anything like the power in their hands Hendricks has.
Mod, Referee, MC
Bearing in mind the thread is "who is the biggest threat" not "Who will beat"
I think Handriks has the tools but as has been stated GSP has fucked all high level wrestlers. But nobody has had the level of wrestling WITH the 1 punch KO power of Hendriks.
Can't believe I didn't mention Gunner Nelson. I believe if Gunner got him to the floor he would tap him but getting GSP on his back is a different story.
I'm no gynecologist but I know a cunt when I see one.
Hendricks has been taken the distance 7 times by lesser opponents than GSP so cant see it being anything other than a decision win for GSP
Gunnar would be way, way smaller than GSP... and GSP is used to rolling with Braulio and Roger. I don't think he would be getting subbed.

I think that fight would go a lot like the Fitch fight.
When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail.
