Cain didn't come close to finishing him, from what I could see. I think people may have thoughts so, seeing JDS out of it the way he was, but that was just carried over from being crushed in the first.
I highly doubt we'll see Cain land that over hand right in the 3rd fight. If not, I can see JDS prevailing, stuffing takedowns and landing shots backing up. A clear eyed JDS is a very different fighter. Then again, a staggered crushed JDS isn's so bad either! It's almost like he was blind fighting some kind of brail system. I don't know how the heck he survived.
Dude, I was simply pulling you up on your use of the term "minimizing damage". JDS was a swollen mess at the end of the fight. If that's what you call minimal damage then im not sure what more I can say.
