Is JDS THAT good off of his back? We just seen Cain absolutley destroy a dude that beat Fedor.
I don't see anyone at HW, with the exception of JDS and Overeem, even challenging Cain. He seems to me like he will tear through any opponent that is put in front of him.
It's not that it's a joke of a fight so much as HW being a joke of a division. Cain was stopped, brutally, in just over a minute. He has one win since, against an opponent who is now 0-1 in the UFC. In any serious division this would not be enough to earn a rematch.
As for your second paragraph - Cain's hype as this great kickboxer is bunk. He just isn't. Any opponent who is dangerous off his back and decent in the stand up would present a challenge. Most notably Werdum.
