Yeah, but Roy doesnt hit light either. I think Cain will really show his striking ability here, but I think JDS will show another level of endurance aswell. It will be JDS endurance which is shown more if he wins, and Cain's striking if it's him. I have a feeling through that Cain catches him like twice, and after failing to do anything the first time, takes it down. The fight eventually ends a contested 3 rounds to 2 for Cain, with JDS outworking with his boxing in the two he wins and Cain landing a big shot or two in two of his with a takedown and control in the other. Who knows though.
MMA-Sportsman, I replied to you anyways if you were wondering.
Lyoto, that fight made me a HUGE Nelson fan, which has since been rebuttled by his terrible personality on TUF. Nelson can take more damage tham maybe anyone else in MMA. I have a feeling he gets KOed by Carwin (dont know why again lmao), but I'd have loved to see him as a Pride fighter against say Nog or Cro Cop.
No_Mercy, agree with everything there. EVERYONE would have wanted to see Overeem Vs JDS now and Cain facing say Carwin with the winner getting the title shot.
