The next big thing looked like more sizzle than steak. His wrestling was excellent against a poor grappler, he could have probably ended the fight if he used any kind of subs and his stand up looked as stiff as my penis during a growing pains marathon
Cain still has a lot to improve on. He DID show us that he can hang with the big boys. He's only going to get better from here. Working on his BJJ, power, and technique will only make him more dangerous in the future.
i cant believe folks are saying carwin (who koed gonzaga ) and cain (dominated kongo ) arent ready or deserving of a shot when lesnar lost his first fight , beat up a washed up cowboy who never was all that great , and got his shot ? id love to see a cain vs carwin fight for number 1 contendership .....if neither of these guys dserve a shot , then who does ?
He was allowed to recover because Kongo would clinch and try to take Cain down. If Kongo kept the fight standing, he probably would of knocked Cain out.
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.
