If this is anything other than another one sided beatdown I will be surprised.

During the first match, Velasquez left Big Foot lying in a pool of his own blood inside of 4 minutes. Although Big foot will be a lot more wary of Velasquez TD this time round, improving on his TDD, I highly doubt he can stop Velasquez TD.

Like the first match, I see this match ending via T(KO) inside round 1 with Velasquez retaining.

Another vicious first round destruction.

With Cain's improved striking (see Cain/JDS II), Silva has a lot to worry about besides the TD.

Cain via BPHS (Brown Pride Hulk Smash).

I don't think it'll be as one sided as the last fight but that's mostly because the last one was a horror film.

Cain will beat the hell out of him again though.

This is such a pointless fight. It's going to look no different than their first meeting. Silva isn't miraculously going to have got way better, he just happened to somehow convince Overeem to stand against the cage with his hands down, despite getting smashed throughout the first 2 rounds. Cain is a destroyer, and will walk through Big Foot as easily he did the first time. Would much rather have seen Hunt or Werdum get the fight.

Any word on Cain's current condition and training? He has the record and hype of a young prodigy, but lacks the age to back up his injuries.

Cain is a 'What if?' fighter if I've ever seen one, probably wins this fight, but I was pretty sure Reem beat Silva too. I think many of us were.

The only thing that will beat Cain in this fight is Cain if he comes in unprepared because he finished Silva so easily the first fight.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

I was pretty sure Reem would win. I already saw Cain demolish Silva. He didn't belong in there.
