Y'all need to stop hating.

Everything he says is true.

The problem is that he and his trainers failed to come up with a better strategy than Cain and his camp. Once they sort it (if they sort it) then the fights will be a lot more exciting and probably go JDS' way.

Explain to me how any fighter getting in the cage with JDS and willing to march forward and apply pressure, is somehow "playing it safe". This is Junior Dos Santos we are talking about. If thats the "safe" route, I would love to hear what is considered dangerous. Basically, Junior wants Cain to stand in front of him with his chin in the air. To ignore his strongest tools and get knocked out like a proper man. Only then will he consider Cain to be brave and not a coward?

I always thought Junior to be a total gentleman. But the way he takes losses is not endearing at all.

getting beaten senseless tends to change a person, Junior didn't just lose he got beaten to a bloody pulp. Losing one's perspective of reality because of serious brain trauma tends to change one's mindset permanently, I don't blame Junior, his brain is all ****ed up. Go get beaten up by the best fighter in the world for 45 minutes and see how well your brain keeps on tickin.

But, does it mean - within the context of MMA - that a grappler can say a striker "plays it safe" because he chooses to strike all the time? As that would also sound pretty dumb too.
This is the exact statement which JDS' comments are based off of.

He finds his striking (which is obviously the style of fighting he most respects) is better than Cain's. He's conceding the fact that Cain showed up with a better game plan but it almost sounds like he just wants to kick box the guy.

It's the same thing a boxer would say about fighting a wrestler. They don't really consider grappling a respectable form a fighting... so they say "yeah whatever you won, but you did it like a pu$$y"

I just read the article again and thought to myself, "JDS should have watched the movie Tropic Thunder before making such a statement. He just went full retard."

Most of the fight took place on the feet. JDS had all the chances in the world to use his "Boxing" to get something going but he could not. He got dropped and hurt badly by boxing. And it isnt Cains fault that he realized if he pushes JDS to the fence that JDS would become a statue and not able to move away from the fence. If that fight was a "Safe" fight it is because JDS was too unskilled to make it more competitive. Not because Cain played it safe... he didnt. He seperated plenty of times while against the fence to throw combos but JDS wasnt able to time any of it all he could do is hope the fence keeps holding him up because his legs wanted to buckle.

Problem is a.) he's a Brazillian speaking in English although I'd have to say his English has improved dramatically. If I was speaking in a foreign language I probably wouldn't come out as very tactful. No me gusto! Yo quero Arianny!

b.) Some fighters aren't the most eloquent or politically correct. They're emotional and extremely prideful.

At least JDS isn't hiding his thoughts. Sour grapes, bitter, probably...but candid.

I think he speaks more from the heart than from his mind. Then again even GSP and Anderson have soundly acknowledged their defeat including Cain too. Anderson is the only one now yet to avenge the lone loss in the UFC. Prior to that he took out Okami.

Yah, I think he's probably losing some fanbase here, but it still doesn't deny the fact that he's most likely the only one to contend against Cain in the near future other than Barnett.

Msg to JDS. Back to the drawing board with wrestling 101 and knocking out contenders.
