Cains transitioning on the ground I feel is quite a bit better than DC's though and his ground and pound is just ruthless.

From the way Cormier always talks up Cains ability in training camps leads me to suspect that Velasquez probably gets the better of the two during sparring and training. In fact, I think that's probably a big reason as to why Cormier seems so interested in cutting down to 205lbs to challenge Jones.

I also think Jones would get the better of Cormier when it comes to the wrestling in an MMA scenario, but would put up a hell of a fight. Honestly, all three fights (Cormier, Cain, Anderson) are very intriguing, I'd like to see them all.
I don't agree. Cormier talks up Cain because he is his student and he is a real nice guy. They both talk eachother up a bit.

It is obviously not why he wants to go to 205 if Cain holds the belt. It is because he is 5'11 and can make 205. He is Cain's wrestling coach and main training partner. They are represented by the same managers. That is clearly why he would rather go after the 205.

I agree to disagree with the wrestling. We will see. I see something real special in Cormier. He tossed Barnett around like he wasn't a wrestler.

I can't believe I didn't think to mention that in my post. I've thought the exact same shit every since I heard he was a possible TUF coach and Bones opponent.
