I really think time has caught up with Randy and i think Cain right now has much better TDs and overall GnP. The stand up is gonna be the surprise trick up Cains sleeve, he can throw nice combos and ppl are sleeping on it, i look forward to him being more confidence with his combos, esp the high/low kick combos and really changing the way ppl view him. He is very young, very raw. But he has the tools. I dont know if this is his time yet and honestly i wouldnt be shocked if he lost to Minotauro BUT im confident Cain's time will come and he will open the flood gates for La Raza and just like boxing we will shine

It could just be the calibre of competition. I guess we find out this fight
Thats true, but I thought he got Brock (a very accomplished wrestler with a huge size and strength advantage) down at some point and Vera is actually a very good wrestler himself. I think that just speaks to how good Nog is. Also, Cain still keeps his chin straight up when he strikes, Nog has good enough stand up to take advantage of that.

I see Cain taking this in quite a dramatic fashion. He is improving with each fight and will raise his level to match that of his opponent (kind of reminds me of the steady rise of Machida - who also was said to have no knock out power). No disrespect to Nog, but I think his time is coming to an end.

Me too. However... it wouldn't be Nog otherwise. Most of us would have given up when the truck run us over!

Hope Nog finishes this fight. Don't think Cain will be able to end it either. Miracle sub fingers crossed!

Huge test for Cain no doubt...but I think it is obvious that Nog is on the down slope of his career right now. I wish it weren't true because he is an amazing fighter that is very fun to watch. But I think Cain will be too much for him at this stage in his career.
