I would love to see him tested against a top HW like Overeem or Sergei but I think a more realstic fight would be Rizzo or Monson due to price.
I don't know, Cain looked really, really good against O'Brien. I have high hopes for the guy.

Big Foot, too.

I think Cain is more talented and skilled than Big Foot however Big Foot has such size and speed he will be so tough to fight.

I'm I the only one that thinks its weird that a championship fight is in the prelims? Shouldn't this be the main event fight considering this is a fight that deterimines the first ELITEXC HW Champion?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

They can't have 3 title fights on the CBS broadcast they only have 2 hours and if all the fights went 5 rounds they would've been screwed.

If that is the case then maybe they should have waited for the next EliteXC event. Having a championship fight on a prelim does downgrades its importance!

I don't think even Elite XC is really taking there HW belt seriously.

They wanted to make it a big fight with Sergei or someone of that skill level but when that fell through I guess they just said **** it lets try to get some people to watch Showtime.
