I really thought Cain was gonna be the more skilled guy what blew my mind was just how well he mixed things up and how much he threw JDS off. And secondly how tired Junior was. I just figured that at some point JDS was gonna catch Cain and put him to sleep because you can't train a chin and I still think Cain's is questionable. After one round it looked pretty clear that Cain had stole JDS soul and his punching power in 5 minutes.

Not sure how a 3rd fight would go, again I think it would be a much different fight. JDS one tool he was having incredible success with tonight was his body shots and it really appeared they were taking something out of Cain by the end of the fight so I would expect to see that be a more major focus for JDS in a rematch. I also think JDS would need to figure out a way to threaten or punish Cain for the TD attempts because even though JDS looked to be shrugging them off early in the first he was doing nothing to stop them from continuously coming and that allowed Cain to use them as a tool to open up without fear of being countered.
