Give him a few more fights to fill the wholes in his game and we will get to see some great matches between him, Lesnar, and Carwin.
What freakin fight were you watching homie? Cain was able to recover because everytime he got rocked he IMMEDIATELY shot in and either tripped or slapped Kongo back to the ground. Kongo had NO SAY in the matter. Kongo TRIED to clinch and take it down ONEC (I think in the third but not sure) but Cain reversed that and put him back on his ass anyways.
Cain is a smart fighter Kongo didnt screw himself here he simply didnt have the ability to capitalize on what he was good at. He has ZERO round game to supplement his stand up so the fight played out EXACTLY the way it should have in that situation.
This MMA and Kongo needs to start taking the ground game seriously. You might say oh well all Cain did was wrestle but thats bullshit cause the dude came out swining at the beginning of everyroun but Kongo was getting the better of the boxing so Cain switched gears and used his other extremely well honed tools to win the fight.
