Use the jab more. Make Cain pay for constantly charging in. A quick jab then move. Rinse and repeat. Don't need to finish Cain with the jab. Just make Cain think twice about coming forward & give himself some offense to build off of.

Cain did a good job of cutting off the ring/cage & moving diagonally in the way Diaz might have in the Condit fight. JDS moved constantly backwards in the early rounds. Too predictable. He may have been served well in coming forwards once in awhile and feinting/threatening as if he's committing to something to make Cain think twice.

I think JDS tried too hard to avoid being taken down and having his back against the cage with Cain in the clinch. He needs more confidence in his ability to hang in those areas & some type of offence for those circumstances & to not be afraid of being put in those situations. He's approaching things more like a boxer fighting in MMA than an MMA fighter?

Eh. Clueless really. I think Cain may really have done a good job of cutting off the cage though. The ppl who complain about ppl who throw punches and run might want to take a look at how Cain didn't go straight forward & how he might have been able to nullify JDS' movement that way.
