Is JDS THAT good off of his back? We just seen Cain absolutley destroy a dude that beat Fedor.

I don't see anyone at HW, with the exception of JDS and Overeem, even challenging Cain. He seems to me like he will tear through any opponent that is put in front of him.
It's not that it's a joke of a fight so much as HW being a joke of a division. Cain was stopped, brutally, in just over a minute. He has one win since, against an opponent who is now 0-1 in the UFC. In any serious division this would not be enough to earn a rematch.

As for your second paragraph - Cain's hype as this great kickboxer is bunk. He just isn't. Any opponent who is dangerous off his back and decent in the stand up would present a challenge. Most notably Werdum.

Cain will survive a little longer this time, but in the end... the outcome will be exactly the same. We'll get to see Junior and Overeem eventually, I'm sure of it.

An overhand behind the back of the ear in the first fight in the first round didn't really tell us much about the fight.

If there's one thing I've learned whilst watching this sport, it's that unexpected early flash KO/TKO's don't really tell us much about a fighters true ability.

Everyone was writing Cain off for the Brock fight and it appears people are doing the same for this rematch, thinking Cain is just going to walk right into a back of the ear shot again.

I don't see that happening.

The Terminator is back, and he's going to take JDS down, drag him into deep waters and drown him.

The right hand was set up by a jab, a jab which JDS used throughout the fight and Cain responded the same each time. JDS only had to throw it out there twice to read Cain and be sure that he'd do the same again, then capitalised on it perfectly.

That is called 'outclassed', not 'flash KO because it hit him behind the ear'. JDS knew the punch would land and he threw it with the intention of finishing the fight, Cain simply did not know that he was being read like a book.

I belive Cain will win this time, he'll get him down and destroy him on the ground.

Cain is an absolute beast, and he just simply got caught last time around.
Hopefully the bookies see this as an easy fight for JDS because of their first fight and I might collect big

Cain fans. lol

Their boy gets KO'ed in 64 seconds and "it doesn't prove much" It proved Junior doesn't need much to put Cain away.

In one minute, a severely injured JDS stuffed a takedown, figured out an opening in Cain's standup, and finished him.


A healthy Junior is going to send Cain to 205lbs permanently.

You don't intentionally land shots to the back of the head unless you're cheating. That's where the shot hit Cain, to the back of the head. So which is it? Junior intentionally placed that shot behind the back of Cains head, or he accidentally hit him there? Given Juniors track record of being a clean fighter, it looks like he didn't mean to hit him in that spot at all.

Had that shot not hit him in that spot, I'm not sure Cain would have gone down at all.
