I can't even imagine Frankie at 170.

That wasn't my point. My point is that I think Edgar would chase harder fights in other weight classes if he thought there was a chance he would get it.

Can't see Cain winning this. No way he avoids juniors hands for 5 rounds without getting KTFO.

Yah, he's going to stop JDS's punches with his face. KO/TKO for JDS. Book it.

He destroys the punching bag that is Bigfoot Silva and everyone acts like he is "back" and is so "hungry".

That was an impressive showing. But he did what he should have done against Bigfoot....destroy him.

Cain is not raising his chances by throwing these lines to JDS.
It will be an insane fight, anyway.

About Cain moving down to 205 if he loses: Not sure if he would be willing to do that, but he is the one paying his own bills. He should do what ever he thinks is best for him.
Who wants to be 2nd place anyway. If he can make the cut, let it be.

I hate when a fighter moves down cause they are losing, even if they are a major contender at the weight. Is Cain happy with NEVER being as good as JDS if he loses? If JDS beats him, he should keep training, beat everybody they put in front of him, and challenge AGAIN. He's 100% capable at HW, so why would he need to move down? Cause he cant beat someone?

Just for the controversy, I'm going for the Cain upset. I can see him landing some big shots on JDS on the feet from unexpected overhand kind of angles, and fighting through a big moment in the fight like Frankie E does. I think at some point he'll take the fight down and lands some big GnP elbows from close range, which will raise some questions of JDS' BJJ.

Cain has some tight crisp boxing, however JDS' has great range, harder shots, and a concrete chin. JDS also has a great base with very solid movement, the kind of guy that is hard to create angles on. I dont see Cain having what it takes on the feet to drop him. Cain is going to need to rush the TD, rush the TD, rush the TD.

JDS via KO in the first.

Attero Dominatus.

Yeah no way he out boxes him, but more "catches him". Like he is rushing the TD with no amazing successes, then he switches to an overhand and has JDS rocked. Might be hopeful but I think everyone will have a lot of respect for JDS' chin after this fight. I have a feeling he'll take some massive shots, Cain will rush for the KO, and JDS will avoid the follow up shots well and recover very quickly. Why am I predictiing this? Fuked if I know.
