Ok, we are back, still riding the heavyweight train.

Last time Carwin kinda failed to deliver any significant discussion and it showed in the lack of voters. Can Cain do better??

Velasquez has been acussed of many thing such as overatedness, borderline racism, a suspect chin and lack of finishing power (Even though he has finished all but one of his fights by way of TKO)

So how up the Ladder is this 7-0 (5-0 UFC) heavyweight, should Joe Silva put him against Carwin for an interim title? would you leave that Honour to someone like Junior Dos Santos instead?

Discuss everything Related to Cain here, and be sure to vote.

I like Cain, I think he's a legit top fighter. He won me over after the Big Ben fight, I truly thought Ben was gonna spawl and brawl, but Cain had his way with him in total ownage. Can't wait till he fights Nog (I'll be pulling for Nog though lol)

Cain for me is all about potential, hes still very young and not as well-rounded as he could be at this point in his career. He's got great cardio and a very intense pace for a heavyweight and obviously good wrestling but his standup needs some work and he needs to work on his submission game more.

I like the way he fights. He reminds me of the old Shogun with his ground and pound, except he doesn't need to stomp and soccer kick to look like a beast. j/k

I'll agree with alizio and say he has future champ written all over him.

JDS will kill this guy.

Real energetic though and I definitely see him ranked top 10 soon.

I don't hate him, but I don't really care about him. I'll watch his fights and be impressed with his wrestling. Other than that, I'm waiting for someone to TKO this guy.

he is ranked in every "legitimate" poll ive ever seen, but i guess you agree with me that these rankings are a joke??

I honestly dont see JDS stopping the takedowns and i dont see him hitting Cain any harder or cleaner then Kongo did. I think it's a great matchup for Cain and i would def be entertained and excited to see it.

I really like him hes got deadly takedown ability and GnP. That first round with Ben was like 10-6 just a complete beatdown. I just dont know if he is big enough to deal with Lesnar or Carwin.

I hate him. I just do because Im a big advocate of JDS and Lesnar so I tend to root against Cain Velasquez. The Fighter Ass Kissing of Cain is just MUAH! I guess he's been training this hard with this intensity since he was a fetus but pffft, whatever

BOOOOO! Cain Velasquez...booo.

A groan of tedium escapes me...
