These reports are always wrong. JDS was never the favorite in the last fight and he'll be a bigger favorite than that by the time the lines are actually published.

I said JDS was going to win the first time, but I think Cain will win a hard fought battle in a rematch. However in the rubber match JDS will win to complete the trilogy. It's too bad they have to face each other this soon. Wand had to wait over a decade for his rematch and now longer. Anderson waited years for his rematch with Okami as well.

I suppose there was just no other options.

Those are two differant situations though. And ya the divisions really shallow so why not.

can't really find the words to explain exactly what I mean but I can't see a JDS rematch for Cain playing out again how it did last time. Last time whilst a mistake from Cain, was also a shock and a freak chance, can't see that happening again. In reality these two would probably go to war and JDS was lucky (though not implying not skilled or the better fighter at all) to be presented with the chance to finish so quickly. Their rematch will be far more competitive and closer.

Dude. Cain had no injuries. JDS had a debilitating knee injury.


This is a 100% JDS. Hes going to make Cain consider retirement or 205.

Cain is great, but hes going to be a solid second place for a long time. He doesn't have the strengths to beat JDS. Both of these fighters however beat Reem easily.

I know the first fight was quick and Cain had a rough time going into it, but JDS was injured too and I think he should be a considerable favorite in the rematch.

JDS and Cain are more evenly matched than what their first fight showed, imo. I expect a close, tough fight that could go either way.

But the best evidence you have that they are hard to choose between is the first fight. And it was anything but a close fight.
