Takedowns were one each, and despite GSP being busier, Hendricks landed substantially more significant strikes. They are classed as significant as that's exactly what they are. The prime example of this is Jon Jones' almost fight ending elbow on Alexander Gustaffson in their 4th round. Gus was busier in this round until that blow sent him in a spin and Jones rightfully won the round because of it. Rounds 1, 2 and 4 are clearly Hendricks' rounds, and then as I've mentioned round 3 is very close as well due to Hendricks getting the big takedown at the end of it. Only round 5 for me was GSP's and even then didn't really do much significant damage. My problem is that of 5 rounds, the winner of the fight only won 1 round where you can definitely say he won it.
