If he wants a chance against Cain he'll have to work a lot harder on his gas tank because if it turns into a 'grind-it-out' match. He'll get owned.
Any guy that big will gas fighting at such a high pace. Mir presents problems for Cain his striking has less openings in it and he is dangerous off his back. He also never recovers once he gets hurt and Cain hits really hard and there is a very clear cardio and speed advantage for Cain.

JDS and Overeem are the only HWs I would favor over Cain and I would expect Cain to dominate most of the rest of the division.

Bones is 220-225 right now if he were a heavyweight and put on 25 pounds of muscle I would put my money on him dominating the grappling.
