I got Junior, I can't see Cain dropping him in the first like he did last time. Junior was laughing at the takedown attempts until he got smashed and spent the rest of the night in survival mode. His survival mode can actually withstand and counter Cain's onslaught for 25 minutes, that is a ridiculous mental advantage to have.

Junior will be his usual sharp self this time, his wife hasn't just left him, I think a repeat of their first fight is more likely than of the second.

If this fight ends in a finish, it will be JDS winning.

I think it's a coin toss, at any rate. Can't wait!

JDS was a different referee away from being finished last time.

But he didn't get finished and there wasn't anything more Cain could have done to get the finish. JDS has amazing chin and heart. I don't see any way possible for Cain to finish JDS.

You are not making any sense. Cain wouldn't have to do anymore if a different ref was in there... it would of been stopped already.

So you are hoping for an early stoppage? Because it's obvious that JDS was able to continue. Outside of a pre-mature stoppage JDS proved he can't be stopped.

I think Werdum's striking is good enough to lead Cain into a take down. Having said that, I think Cain would gas Werdum if it made it out of the second.

Laughing at his take down attempts before he landed the big shot? Cain landed the very first take down he attempted on Junior in the second fight....

Not sure who's going to win this time round, these two are the creme de la creme of the HW division and I think we'll see them battle it out a couple of more times in the future.

I hope Cain wins, for some odd reason I have a feeling that Cain may try and completely surprise Junior by locking in a submission, wouldn't be too surprised to see him pull it off either.

If there's one aspect of Cains MMA game haven't necessarily seen evolve yet, it's his submission game. Given Cains extremely well rounded nature and evolution from fight to fight, I have a feeling he might want to show off a few submission tricks.

I dont understand why people use the excuse that Cain was injured in the first fight?

JDS had a torn meniscus in that fight but I guess that doesn't count as a injury.

Lets see

Cain Velasquez - When the 2 met for their first fight, Velasquez was known to be a very all round fighter with superior wrestling maybe even good enough to finally take down JDS whom back then was only put on his back for 3 seconds.

In the end, Velasquez got knocked out 64 seconds into the fight.

That spark up debates of whether Velasquez can take a punch from heavy puncher such as JDS and question arise that can he beat JDS should he be more committed to his wrestling ability.

Well, he shows that he can in their second fight and on top of that, he also prove to the world that his all roundness ability when he put a beating on JDS from pole to pole winning back the HW title.

JDS - Known to be a Impressive striker with awesome TDD. Showed that he have the power in his hand to Knock out Velasquez when they first met.

His TDD was put to test in their second fight. To his credit, JDS proved that his defensive wrestling is good by repeatedly getting back to his feet after being taken down. But was dominated in that fight.

He came back strong in is most recent fight knocking out Mark Hunt who is a former K1 champion.

But all he did was that he proved to us something that we knew. Knocking out a K1 champion show that he is a impressive striker. But it has been proven that alone is not enough to beat Cain Velasquez. He need to show more (maybe his implied "good BJJ")

Not really a good gauge considering the discipline Mark Hunt is good at (striking as compared to Velasquez wrestling/all roundness).

Judging from this, my mind says Velasquez but I am still rooting for JDS to win this.
