That comment couldn't be further from the truth. Cain dropped an enormous amount of bombs on Junior's face while on the ground.

2 questions I have about the fight.

1. Did anyone think the angle of Cain's head in the standup looked a little unusual. Seemed like it was tilted to the right.

2. Why did Junior put on extra muscle and change a winning formula? Was he worried about Cain's takedowns or bulking up for Overeem?

Yes, it was. I read on brazilian forums that he gained 4kg of muscle

#2, I think he may have looked past cain a little, maybe not looked past but he was looking forward at Overeem, thats the only reason I can think of he would add size, and size is not what it is going to take to beat Overeem, a good fast hard right hand will probably be the key to solving Reem,,imo..
