Velasquez has top tier stand-up but JDS has that sick one-punch finish to go along with arguably the best hands ever in the UFC HW division. The way Junior finished Mir was nasty. That last, straight right hand sent the solid 265 lb Mir flying back. Cain has a freakish puzzle to figure out. Scariest thing about Junior is that his timing is gold. Look for that hungry, bad intentions look in Junior's eyes. If Cain gets to Rd. 3 without getting caught and JDS starts gassing a bit, the takedown will be much easier for Velasquez. He will be in the driver's seat for the W. If Cain squares up with Junior early, he's gonna get caught and finished again. I hope this ends up in a sick war like it was intended to be...
...Glad I still have some insight. Not a bad pre-fight analogy post eh fellas? Congrats to Cain Velasquez- Now the baddest HW on the planet. I dare Overeem to test Cain now. Reem saw in JDS some of the best TDD get dismantled with Junior taking a beating. I think Cain can do it to Overeem as well...
