THEN when Cain started to notice his plan was working and Junior began dropping his hands because he always thought the take down was coming, Cain set up the big over hand and started smashhing him on the feet.

Personally, I'd call that masterful. Absolutely excellent and smart game planning and execution from Velasquez in that opening to round to get Junior to drop his hands and land heavy damage on the feet.
While I'll agree that Cain's game plan was to get JDS thinking TD to set up the right... If you would call those first 8 TD attempts anything other than sloppy and risky, then you would truly live up to your name.

Not only did they look horrible, they really put him in a exposed position and hes lucky JDS was too concerned with just getting away from him to capitalize on the postion.
