I think the third fight would be even more 1 sided then todays fight.

And alot of websites scored the first round 10-8!! Which i wouldnt argue.
I think it's kind of unfair to say that though.

I don't think JDS was the same fighter after that first punch. It took a lot out of him and you could see he was still out going into the second. Cain then used that to take him down and grind him up to take down his cardio annd beat him that way. The only reason all of this was possible was because of that one big punch.

To me, it works like this;

Cain landed a big punch on JDS to help him win the fight.
JDS landed a big punch on Cain which ended the fight.

JDS might have brutalized Cain had he not have knocked him out. It could happen again. I'd probably give JDS an edge in a rematch depending on how he progresses in earning another shot.
