I think Much of the reason why he is so well conditioned is the fact he is a LHW hiding in HW division. His frame and movement compared to that of Brock and Silva or Alistair is ridicolous its obviously not the same division, the way he moves his speed and cardio ALL belong with Texeira, Jones, Machida and others!



No it wouldn't necessarily happen like that perhaps you say it because you are a fan of Cain? I would argue that it was first round and they were both strong so Big foot deserved a better chance to recover.

Ill tell you this, take a look at Big Foot and Mark Hunt and compare them after they get back up..., a completely different physical and mental condition, when BF got back he still was fresh and had strength to defend himself.

There was one moment when he held his head on the mat but i think this was on purpose to avoid bigger head shots, and it can be referee judged this as "not defending" and thought he ll call the fight off.

So in future what do you prefer a shitty stopage like this or a real fight?

For UFC as long as they sell PPV its good for them to have minimal damage of fighters when they face athletic and state comissions.

But where does it leave fighters and their real interests? Or us fans who want to see real fights, NO SCARRED JUDGES stoping fight on first sign of "no defense" or Cain acting like he is hitting him with Hammers to impress the judge.

I still think he got robbed and he had a fight in him.
I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since you're a new poster. I'm not a fan of Cain, but I don't hate. However I respect him as a fighter.

Stylistically the faster, strong handed wrestlers have given BJJ artists a run for their money.

Carwin vs Mir
Brock vs Mir
Fedor vs Big Nog
DC vs Big Foot
Cain vs Big Foot x 2

To reiterate this wasn't Cain's first time. A.) He's beaten down everybody including JDS in the rematch. B.) He destroyed Big Foot the first time and the rematch was no different. Just less bloodier.

Stating that the fight should have continued is sour grapes. I've already said I wanted it to go on 100%. Do you really think the outcome would have changed...

I DO NOT like Big Foot. I wanted to see him put in the hospital. Any more questions?

I had no issue with the stoppage, in fact I thought it was perfect.

Bigfoot got dropped with a powerful right and was also taken down again after that, then Cain dropped more bombs on him without Bigfoot protecting himself, of course after being given the chance to do so. All that would have happened if the ref let it go a little longer is that Cain would have dropped more huge bombs on Bigfoot's face.

The first fight was a full bloody pond... Cain knows how to win a fight i will give him that he knows the dirty ground and pound tactics. The first fight like you said , and also this one were very similar they were over before you could say "blood"... before you could really match them and see how their other skills go against each other, and that is really a shame in many ways ...

Cain knew how to exploit the game in a quick, bloody, and dirty way ...

Nobody thought BF could beat Fedor or Alistair , that is why i wanted to see a true match, ok if people love to see elbows, lot's of liters of blood on mat... and some quick g'n'p ... i hope they enjoy it ....!
