Jds Bulked??? Can someone confirm this?.

After reading over the threads for the past 24 hours people seem to be thinking that the reason Jds gassed was because he gained muscle, can someone confirm this?, sources, videos, interviews?.

Jds weighed in at 239 like always and looked the same to me. I think he gasses due to the non stop pace and shots by Cain, he is used to being in control and fighting his game and I think Cain exposed a weakness in Jds for the rest to see.

Yeah he gassed because he's not used to fighting at that pace, he literally had something to defend the whole time. That huge right hand didn't help either.

JDS looked in better shape than usual, but he certainly didn't put on much muscle as he weighed the same as usual.

JDS tiring is not a weakness of his. When you are that big it's insanely hard to have good cardio, so much to the point that Cain is a freak of nature, literally. Gain used his strength (nearly endless cardio) to beat Junior, in fact Junior being able to even last 5 rounds and continue to fight off takedowns showed incredible stamina. Cain's strength is not Junior's weakness, he is the combination of good genetics and an insane work ethic.

The fight was not a revealing of Junior's weakness but a representation to everyone how far Cain actually push himself, Junior impressed a lot of people in the fourth and fifth by even attempting to get a second wind and fight off takedowns. Nobody else has been able to keep Cain off them like he did even in defeat. I fully expected Junior to win because I figured there'd be no way Cain would get him down, he proved the world wrong, glad I didn't bet any money on it.

Just look at the pictures. He clearly was larger for this fight then he has been in the past.

It's not a significant difference but he looks much leaner and larger. I'm not in the camp that JDS gassed because of this though. But I do see that he looks different. I think he gassed because he got hurt in the first round and by the time he got it together Cain had been pushing him against the fence making him get up and grapply and drained him. Cain was pretty slow by the end of the second, so I don't really think it was the pace. Junior never set his feet and threw any punches he just walked backwards and looked for one shot.

Looks more defined but as you said not like he gained 15lbs of muscle or anything and he's not cutting anything significant. Cain just had his number and he couldn't adapt.

Exactly. I'm interested in the third fight already. JDS showed he could avoid most of Cain's grappling in the first before he got rocked. And I'm sure just like Cain did for this fight, he'll drill everything he did wrong. The rematch is always harder on the guy who won last time. I don't see Cain being able to just terminator walk right at JDS again and win the third fight. Junior clearly hadn't planned on him doing that and didn't look comfortable moving backwards. He'll maybe finally start drilling how to move off center and counter and not just back up straight, which is what allowed Cain to be effective in the second fight. The same way Cain realized he wasn't going to be able to work his kicks and jab from the outside in the first fight.

Did you even read what I wrote under those pictures? Where I said I wasn't in the camp that thought it had anything to do with his performance, but I could see a difference in his body?
