This is one of his tactics to gas opponents.
Yea... I agree. Cains entire game is based around position. He wont throw shit offensively until his position is secure. Totally evil and methodical. He will happily let somebody get up as long as he's still in a strong position.
I'm not sure how *skilled* he is... but he is scarily disciplined. That, for me, is his strong point. He wrestles like hes been drilled hard his whole life. His concentration never seems to slip. He's awesome.

Naa. You can call those initial takedown attempts "sloppy"... but they we're still enough to get Dos Santos to lower is guard. By the time Cain clocked him, he was totally not expecting it. Sloppy or not... it was mission accomplished if you ask me.
Happy new year you northern skirt wearing caveman.
