Based on watching all his fights and how easily he stuffed the take downs before being dazed, battered and gassed. I would say he has great take down defense. He also has an amazing chin and heart which you can see in the Carwin, Nelson and Cain fights.
The problem you are having is you are taking a look at JDS after he was already dazed and battered and you are saying his skill set is what we see there. But we have enough to look at before that to see that isn't the case.
Ridiculous, if JDS had great take down defense it would have kicked in by instinct. He does'nt have this great BJJ or TDD everyone likes to talk about, and Cain exposed it to the fullest.
