If there's one thing I've learned whilst watching this sport, it's that unexpected early flash KO/TKO's don't really tell us much about a fighters true ability.

Everyone was writing Cain off for the Brock fight and it appears people are doing the same for this rematch, thinking Cain is just going to walk right into a back of the ear shot again.

I don't see that happening.

The Terminator is back, and he's going to take JDS down, drag him into deep waters and drown him.
The right hand was set up by a jab, a jab which JDS used throughout the fight and Cain responded the same each time. JDS only had to throw it out there twice to read Cain and be sure that he'd do the same again, then capitalised on it perfectly.

That is called 'outclassed', not 'flash KO because it hit him behind the ear'. JDS knew the punch would land and he threw it with the intention of finishing the fight, Cain simply did not know that he was being read like a book.
