I still think Cain vs JDS 2 needs to be on the list. The fact that Cain won wasnt the huge upset, but the amazingly dominant performance was shocking.

It would be like if an NFL game had even betting lines and one team went 56-0

If the other team all got hit in the head and could barely move the whole game.

Shocking is a rather strong word. Surprising? Maybe. I voted for Cain to win and he did. Maybe in a more convincing fashion then I though he would but in no way was that an upset.

This is to anyone who said JDS vs Cain should be on the list. The title of the thread says biggest upsets. Not most surprising beatdowns. Cain beating JDS was never an upset. Respect to all your opinions but Cain Velasquez beating anyone in the world is never ever going to be an upset.

I think it is pretty shocking that Cain was dominant enough to make the HW champ mount no offence whatsoever and lose the stand up, the area of combat in which JDS is supposed to be dominant. Matter of personal opinion I suppose.

Cain JDS should definitely be number one, did not see that coming. Cung Le's knock out of Ace should be up there too, that almost had me spit my drink all over the laptop in shock!

Not a bad list though, Boestch and Lombard at number one though? Think that fight has still left a sour taste in my mouth.

No I agree it wasn't the fact he won it was the WAY he won. I don't think anyone thought Cain would drop Dos Santos with a single punch or stand with him for 5 rounds a majority of the fight.

I wouldnt call anything after the 2nd round "Standing" with JDS. I would call it JDS wondering where the **** he was and how he ended up on the set of Goonies 2 yet alone playing Sloth. After that 1st round I got bored real fast. Cain should of finished that fight. I still hate Cain, still love Junior. That is all.
