Simply, no. Cain not only needs a win before he gets another shot against JDS, he needs a couple.
I have never been too excited for Cain. IMO opinion he has fought mediocre competition and was fed to the top. For those that say he KO's Big Nog, Mir did that first AND broke his arm. Than there are those that will say he beat Brock, the same guy that gave Brock his first lose (Brock by the way if you remove Herring and Kim was an astounding 3-3 in his career, looking really bad in his last 2.)It made a nice story line with the fan base the UFC is reaching for south of the border.
Mir on the other hand is on the 3 fight win streak as mentioned prior in the thread. Cro Cop is always dangerous, Nelson is a freak of nature (let me remind you that this guy took a BEATING from JDS and wouldn't go down. I want to him vs. Hunt, much more appropriate) and than he beat Big Nog. This business about how he almost got KO'd earlier in the round is nonsense. HE BROKE HIS ARM! Broke an arm of a guy who is a BJJ legend. If Reem is in fact out of the fight, which it doesn't look like the case, Mir is the most logical choice.
