I also think Cain poses a bigger threat on the feet than most believe, before the KO he was looking good and had outlanded Junior.

I just really think that 64 seconds isn't long enough to judge the two fighters, yeah JDS dropped Cain fiercely, but Cain landed a decent shot on JDS during a combo with a lowkick from memory, as long as both fighters land solid shots, either has the ability to flash KO the other. They are HWs afterall.

Maybe it's fanboyism , but yeah I definitely see Cain dragging JDS to the mat and beating him to a bloody pulp.
This. I feel that Cain, besides Overeem, is the biggest threat to JDS as I feel Belfort is to Anderson. In neither fight, we saw any of the elements that could have been brought into them because they were flash knockouts. When they earn their way back up, it makes the second fight all that more interesting.
