I should have just rephrased my initial post to "an offensive submission game", rather than over all BJJ, that's what I meant originally.



BOOM, HEADSHOT!

Wow that GIF says it all, total ownage from Cain. Still shocked it was as one-sided and dominant a performance as it was.

PortugalMMA has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Great performance by Cain. I think there are some aspects of the fight that must be noticed:

1. Cigano training was not the best possible. He gave too much emphasis on strength training, and the result was no guard and a demolished face in the end of the fight. Besides that, I think he should have trained with some good quality wrestlers in order to prepare for Cain's takedowns.

2. Despite being better on striking than Cigano (which I was not expecting), Cain had some weaknesses on his striking game, putting his head down TOO much times and he could have been KO'd by JDS with an uppercut or a knee at any moment. Apart from that, he dominated Cigano the whole fight and deserved the belt!

I'm not sure the strength training was such a big issue. Has it been confirmed that he gained muscle? I think it was more his confidence in his TDD and hands that he wasn't conditioned to be put on his back much. Once that happened, and happened often he lost the mental edge, and his game plan shut down. All that was left was heart and pride.

Can anybody explain to me why for the majority of the fight JDS just left his hands down waiting to be punched? It just seems so odd. If you are fighting someone... wouldn't you want to protect yourself???

Hands low to stuff the shot, try to focus on slips and rolling with the punches. Same gameplan Anderson employs against strong grapplers.

I noticed the same thing and thought it was weird too. Esp when he was backed into the cage and would just sort of walk to his left hands down and take some punches. I can only guess that he was out of it after he took a couple of really big punches, lost his will and that was that.

JDS never looked fully into this fight. Maybe getting punched hard a couple of times will do that, or getting taken down at will, but he just seemed out of it to me, even in the early rounds.

What happened to that dude Khoveraki who used to post on here frequently. He was by far JDS' biggest bum buddy, claimed Cain or no other fighter ever had a chance in hell against "rocketfists Junior". lolz.

He should go down to 205 before he fights JDS. This rematch is going to be the worst business decision he's ever made. 2 losses to the Champion and no one is interested in a rematch, and dropping a weight class because you have to is way less marketable than doing it by choice.
Unlucky buddy, "your boy" got smashed.
