One huge variable for me is the outcome of the co-main. Cormier and Velasquez have openly admitted how important it is that Dan is in Cain's corner... well he's fighting MMA's own kung-fu panda first.

On the flip side, JDS is actually having his head coach in his corner for the first time in the UFC.

Cain will dominate the fight. He might not win though.

I'm very excited for this fight. I think its going to be a close competitive exciting fight and great way to culminate the trilogy. Both guys seem very ready. I'm very level on who I thinks going to win this fight. There's many different outcomes I can envision. I'm going to edge slightly towards Cain I feel hes the more well rounded and I believe will slightly edge out Junior in a hard fought decision.

I don't always give out predictions, but this time I will.

JDS had a solid tune up with Mark Hunt. Giving him even more confidence in his knock out ability. He's trained with an Olympic candidate which will help in TDD, getting out of the clinch, and popping back up. If Gustaf was able to do it against the LHW title holder so can JDS as long as he's not exhausted.

He's studied the rematch and knows exactly what Cain is going to do. He needs to find the opening, remain composed at all times. He'll clip Cain finishing him eventually regaining the title and setting up a fourth in 2014/2015.

It won't be a KO bomb like in the first. I believe it will be an uppercut or side step hook counter that will stun Cain. If Cain survives then it'll be a decision for JDS. In fact that's what I would like to see leading to a fourth encounter.

Jds will has walking the cage. This fight comes down to the first round. If Jds can win it will be first round, if he can't then Cain will have his way with Jds.

Interesting they have been on the same card for their last 4 fights, including 2 cards where they were not fighting each others. After this fight, they would have been on the same card for 5 consecutive times.

I hate making a prediction when these two fight. The two top HWs in the UFC by a wide margin, one of these two guys will hold the title for the next 5-6 years, the only HWs that can beat them is each other. I'll go with either JDS by KO round 2/3 or Cain by UD. I love JDS but I also realize Cain is the top P4P HW there is right now, the fight as a whole makes me nervous to be honest.

I predict

Cain vs JDS III (JDS wins)
Cormier vs Nelson (Cormier wins)

2014
JDS beats Cormier
Cain beats Nelson.

Meanwhile Gustafsson face Jones and beat him.


2015 (I am not gonna predict these fights since it is in far future and injuries and other can affect their long term skills)
- Cormier drop down to light heavyweight to face Jon Jones (no title fight since Gus has the belt)
- JDS vs Cain IV
