Frankie doesn't even weigh 170.

If Cain comes in with the right grappling game plan, he could very well take Junior down and have his way with him on the ground. Junior still hasn't been tested by a truly elite level wrestler with a game plan for take downs, just like Machida hadn't prior to facing Jones.

Juniors ground game is finally going to be tested in this fight, and lets just say I don't think it will be passing with flying colours...
That's a valid point but we've also seen Cain take a guy down and still manage to get dropped several times in a fight and the uppercut is the best way to catch a wrestler coming in and Junior has a nasty uppercut. Cain will have to be very careful when he picks his shots in this fight.
