I think he was implying that Cain tends to attack on the ground which *usually* means there are more openings for an escape, as opposed to fighting a blanket.

However, in this context, I totally disagree. Cain is all about control. He never attacks unless his position is solid. Cain is one of the few guys who can mount a significant offence as well as blanket motherfukers.

Really, its testament to JDS abilities on the ground. Cain never managed to hold him down for too long. It was very impressive from Junior. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't stop being taken down over and over. If ever a fight deserved the "rinse & repeat" moniker, it was this fight.
