Cain is a beast and deserves more credit then he is getting. Everybody he has trained with, from AKA to Machida to Brett Rogers has said the same thing..... BEAST!! You cant stop the takedowns and if you get up you get taken down again, controlled, GnP'd and so on. Top that off with off the charts cardio for a HW (has he ever looked tired?? he straight wrestles AKA WWs and outlasts them....) and you got something special here. Ill bump this after he takes down Nog at will
GSP has the best transitional style MMA wrestling from striking to TDs. Great top control and just like Cain if you do get up, it's likely you get put down even faster. Im not sure where he would be without the striking tho. Still top notch no doubt.
Sonnen has some crazy freestyle skills and i enjoy watching him so i thought i'd give some mention
BTW Toxic, i was saying if GSP moved up to 185.... not who was a better wrestler P4P. There is a MASSIVE difference. I dont think GSP can move up to 185 or 205 and outwrestle Dan Henderson. No if's and's or buts about it, if he clinched with Dan Henderson he is getting taken down, if he tries to control Dan Henderson on the ground i think it's VERY unlikely.
Alves is big... Alves wants no part of MW, so ppl need to stop pointing at him as proof GSP can beat bigger, stronger guys because Alves couldnt hang with the top MWs imo and i think in his own opinion because clearly with his stature that's the weight class he belongs in.
Imma throw this out there. Straight wrestling match, 2morro might, Cain vs Randy, i would throw $200 REAL dollars on Cain
and $500 in an MMA fight
