I should move all in on Cain here. May take longer, but the results will be the same. He's too quick. Only reason why Big Foot is winning is because all of his opponents don't respect em and that includes Fedor (he was brawling with em), Travis Browne, and Overeem.

This is one of the rare occasions where the co-main event is garnering more attention than the main...heh...heh. Can't believe it's this Saturday already!!!

Yes, I think Cain will dominate. But it'll be a longer fight. We cant completely dismiss the effects of being on your back, with an eye socket full of your own blood. I mean, it was a *lot* of blood. Shit was flying off Siva every time he shook his head.

Without the blood, Silva would have done better. Of that I have no doubts. Now watch Cain go in there and knock the fook out of Silva in the first 30 seconds.

The blood didn't just appear though, it appeared after Cain put an almighty beating on Big Foot. It was one of the most one-sided and brutal fights in UFC history. Cain completely dominated, and there was such a big gap in their performances, that I just can't see it going any other way than another Cain domination. Big Foot's done very well to get himself into contention, and with wins over Fedor and Overeem he certainly is in the Top 5 of the division, but I don't see him having a chance. Would be one of the biggest shocks in UFC history if Big Foot pulls off the upset though, that'd be insane!

I still think Cain takes this but people are really exaggerating what happened in the first fight. Cain was having his way, but that blood really was a factor. Big foot most definitely would have lost in the later rounds but he couldn't see when Cain was about to drop the bombs.

A BJJ black belt like Silva would have tied up if he could have seen. I think a lot of people are sleeping on Big Foot and I really hope Cain isn't, that would be a huge mistake.

I remember most people on here after the Cain & JDS 1 fight, most jumped off the Cain wagon after they saw what happened.

Silva really needs to work Cain against the cage and clinch if he wants to survive into the later rounds. I think pure heart and desire may get him much further this time around.

Without blood flooding his eyes I expect Bigfoot to perform a lot better. He's slower than cain but very powerful, hits hard and has solid bjj.

The cut came from a single elbow *very* early. The vast majority of the beatdown came after that.

Dont get me wrong brother... I totally love Cain. He will beat Bigfoot again no doubt. But the blood thing did kind of ruin the first fight a bit. It leaves just enough questions to make the rematch a little interesting.
