Just for the controversy, I'm going for the Cain upset. I can see him landing some big shots on JDS on the feet from unexpected overhand kind of angles, and fighting through a big moment in the fight like Frankie E does. I think at some point he'll take the fight down and lands some big GnP elbows from close range, which will raise some questions of JDS' BJJ.
Cain has some tight crisp boxing, however JDS' has great range, harder shots, and a concrete chin. JDS also has a great base with very solid movement, the kind of guy that is hard to create angles on. I dont see Cain having what it takes on the feet to drop him. Cain is going to need to rush the TD, rush the TD, rush the TD.

JDS via KO in the first.

Attero Dominatus.
