I agree with Clyde when he says JDS maybe don't even remember grabbing the fence. He was so in a walking coma state I believe instincts kicked over and he just grabbed the fence several times. Although we all know it's a plain foul, there's a BIG gap between the scenario in which that happened and to label the guy a straight "cheater".

I think Junior will come back much stronger, he was starting to get very arrogant and now he will realise that he is not invincible. Their 3rd fight will be amazing if JDS can adjust properly.

I don't live my life that way, but I'm not a fighter.

100% agree, IMO, he needs to concentrate on speed more than muscles. He has hell of a CHIN, BODY, HEART, and SOUL of a true fighter. All what he needs is SPEED. Cain was clearly much faster than him that night

The booing was absolutely bang out of order and I felt horrible for the guy during that post fight interview.

Dos Santos survived five rounds against a relentless Cain Velasquez who gave him no space to breathe what so ever. Where every other single HW would have fallen and succumbed to strikes in the fight, JDS NEVER gave up, and was always trying his heart out.

That's a testament to his true warrior spirit and just proves how skilled of a fighter he really is. People have critiqued Cain for not finishing Dos Santos, but I don't think that's fair. Cain couldn't finish the fight because he was fighting Junior ******* Dos Santos, one of the most elite HW's to ever compete in the sport.

Great fight, terrible audience.

Im not the worlds biggest JDS fan but I give it to the guy, he gave it his best shot, just had the wrong game plan, he recognizes what he did wrong, handled the loss with dignity/class, probably learned a couple things about himself during and after the fight. Cain is a bad man, JR took it 5 rds. I think the rubber match will be worth the price. Both guys have good years of fights ahead of them. Im just happy the HW's are fun to watch for a while it seems..
