The best thing about this result is the division is now waaaaay more interesting. If Junior won there would only be the Overeem and i guess Cormier fight left, now there are loads more good future match-ups

Cain is a beast, ephasised once again how important wrestling/wrestling defence can be in a fight (bendo, gsp, jones)

Not great for me as dudes landing/not landing shots from on top is one of my least favourite aspects of the sport - and before anyone says, i know Cain outstruck junior, its just my pov

Also i think there needs to be a rule that you can only gloat once on here if your fighter wins against the odds, otherwise it makes you look silly

Favourite Fighters
Anderson Silva
Mark Hunt
Bisping
Fedor
Machida
Pettis
Aldo
McGregor
'John' Wayne Parr
Nathan 'Carnage' Corbett

Unlucky buddy, "your boy" got smashed.
I remember him. He's the only guy to ever neg rep me. You know why. Everybody knows by now I made the prediction that they'd fight three times and win one a piece. When I made the prediction that Cain would win and this was posted like almost a year ago he negged me...lolz! Pretty childish. Doesn't understand the fight game. I like JDS...he's a helluve a fighter and I can say I'm a fan especially how he presents himself in public. But I really sensed it almost like destiny that these two would cross paths and do battle.

This is the fight business. Anything can happen on any given Saturday.

I wonder what Cain thinks. He just about threw everything at JDS and he would not go down. All I can say is that JDS's next opponent is going to feel some pain.


Come to think of it who can he fight. He's already beat all the top contenders. Maybe Bigfoot, but that's not even fair. Bigfoot would be a walking punching pag. Hunt is the only interesting fight or Cheick. Actually if I were the UFC I'd place Overeem vs Cain for Superbowl weekend and Bigfoot vs JDS. What "if" Bigfoot wins. Nobody wants to see a rematch. Werdum is a perennial contender, but not quite championship material. He's really really slow. Wicked BJJ, solid striking, but damn slow. Cain will be able to take care of em.

Werdum. Or Cormier. Maybe Barnett.

Just to point out that JDS was taken down at will ONLY after being punched hard and this is crucial info to understand how things played after that. I was rooting for Junior, but Cain is a great champ and sportsman and the belt is in good hands.

Anyway, who ever called Cain "pillow hands"? Looks like his punches are as heavier as they can get by those tests:

Cain never really managed much offense when he got junior down. As soon as he tried to punch junior was getting up even when he was completely gassed. Cains beat offense was in the clinch and when JDS was against the fence.

the few people booing JDS after were booing because they probably lost their house betting on him. I'm sure there were a lot of distraught people last night and it's the reason why I never do sportsbetting

Werdum definitely will get KOed again. He's too slow. Cormier would be very interesting, but I need to see him against the LHW title holder. DW said something awhile back that he never will have Barnett fight in the UFC ever again. But yah that would be interesting. Barnett is highly underrated. He has one of the best top games. He beat Couture and tested positive I think and that was it.

Come to think of it I think I would like to see Mark Hunt vs JDS or with Cheick.

It's a shame JDS appeared to gas about 2/3's through the 1st round, after he got cracked by the one punch in the 1st he slowed down and started sucking wind...

I also didn't understand why he had his hands down and didn't seem to try to defend any of the strikes coming his way, I guess he wasn't overly worried about Cain's power and keeping his hands down to attempt to stop the takedowns..

I was bummed for JDS, guy is a nice guy, great champ, but as others have said, this sets up better fights in the HW division, and the future rubber-match once JDS wins a fight or two (depending on how Cain can do against Overeem)

JDS would destroy kongo would depend on what hunt shower up but I think junior would beat him as well.

My biggest disappointment in that fight is once again we'll have an American waving around a Mexican flag....
