Undoubtedly, these are the top 2 Heavyweight in the UFC.

The key to this match is Cain's TD VS JDS TDD. If JDS is able to keep this on the feet like the first time, I see JDS taking this via KO again. But if Cain is able to take JDS down and hold him there, we will see for the very first time how good JDS is on the ground.

It is interesting to note that JDS has never face a wrestler with Cain's credentials not counting the 1st time they meet when Cain didn't really commit to any takedown. So I believe if anyone can take JDS down, is Cain (and Comier)

Like the 1st time, I will sides towards JDS. War Junior Dos Santos!

Very hard to call, I could see it going either way likely if Dos Santos wins it'll be by KO if Velasquez wins it'll either be a decision or a TKO by ground and pound. I'm taking Velasquez just on the sheer hope of this becoming the first great heavyweight trilogy in UFC history.

Cain's striking is better than that of most heavyweights. It's still not, y'know, good. He'll be able to take Junior down if he can set the shot up with his striking. The problem is Junior is too good, and that window Cain has to do that before he gets put on queer street is pretty narrow.

This should be interesting.
While I'm not at all a JDS fan, he presents a pretty rough stylistic matchup for Cain.
Cain did tear his ACL before the fight, but Junior was also hurt as well, so this time I feel like we'll get to see some more action.

I think Cain will be prepared for Junior's striking but he knows he can't afford to get hit much.

Cain didn't have a torn ACL, if his ACL had been torn he'd have never fought Junior or Bigfoot, his knee was messed up but not that badly.

Cain is not gonna want to mess around on the feet this time, he should have learnt from the Kongo fight but having to climb back up he is not gonna try and prove his stand up skills he will go for TD's and GnP all night long. The question is can he get it? Can JDS defend and make him pay for trying?

Personally I don't think Cain can keep Junior off his chin for 5 rounds but I am starting to think he can get aggressive and finish him the way he did BigFoot.

He didn't want to fight on the feet last time, no one does. Cain, like everyone else, was FORCED to stand. The length of the fight is irrelevant, supposed injuries are irrelevant, Cain tried a takedown and did not get it.

The mental mountain Cain has to climb when he meets Cigano again will be HUGE, 10 seconds later he'll be eating jabs again. Massive underdog IMO.
