Personally, I'd call that masterful. Absolutely excellent and smart game planning and execution from Velasquez in that opening to round to get Junior to drop his hands and land heavy damage on the feet.
Maybe i was a little drunk at that point and he fooled me. If he did plan that then that was pretty crazy. I saw easy stuffed td after easy stuffed td. Jds was just backing up with hia chin straight up. His defense looked like ass.

The whole fight even deep in the fight jds was getting up after each take down.

Not bashing cain. But it was an odd ass fight. He made it hia fight anf won it thas all that matters. But i thought if he dominated on the cards he would have had more dominant wrestling and control. Jds looked like a zombie with no concept of hands up for 80% of the fight. I was disappointed.

While I'll agree that Cain's game plan was to get JDS thinking TD to set up the right... If you would call those first 8 TD attempts anything other than sloppy and risky, then you would truly live up to your name.

Not only did they look horrible, they really put him in a exposed position and hes lucky JDS was too concerned with just getting away from him to capitalize on the postion.

Agreed. I thought he was going to get stopped at the end of the first, then when Cain got him right back down again at the beginning of the second, I figured `that`s it`.

But he just refused to quit.

This was probably the best HW title fight in UFC history.

The early takedown attempts were a calculated risk. While JDS does have good takedown defence and can scramble up to his feet quickly, he doesn't really punish people for failed attempts. If you shoot on him and fail you're not going to eat a knee or get hit with a punch combo. Rather, he opens the range and then starts working the striking game.

Cain made the bet that he wasn't going to get creamed by knee or anything like that when going for takedowns, and he was right. He got his gameplan working and that was what won the fight for him.

Wow! Cain Valasquez sure showed everyone who gave him no chance in the rematch what he's made of. Myself included.

I figured it would go down pretty similar to last time but Cain wrecked JDS for 5 rounds and it is testament to JDS heart that he even got out of the 1st.

I found the Crowd last night infuriating. They would boo nearly every fight after 10 seconds of not seeing a brawl and I thought it was disgusting the way they booed JDS after the fight.

If you were at the event last night, and you booed, then you my friend are an asshole!

So Cain pounds JDS with heavy fists all night turning his head into a balloon, kicked JDS in the head with full momentum and tossed him around like a rag doll at will but Cain did'nt look impressive even though he basically took the soul out of one of the best fighters in the world to the point where he was in tears.

I love this place.

I honestly thought jds was drugged the way he started acting. Like the klitch vs brewster boxing fight. Jds looked weird as hell after the first 3 minutes.

Worst crowd ever, completely disrespectful. MMA fans couldn't have really asked for more, all in all one of the best cards in a very long time.

Totally agree. They Booed in practically every fight. I mean, I always expect booing but usually at bad Ref/Judges decisions or a fighter stalling but they booed EVERYTHING!!


They didnt boo the ref who looks like Brock Lesnars long lost Dad when he stood Okami up from Side control though....
