Just spent the last hour watching some of Cains fights and i dont think this is a good match up for him. He seems to be a younger Nog with out the skill level. I see him getting rocked with a few good shots fron Nog And shooting for a TD. He will get swept and Ground and pounded to a UD or subbed.

I think Cain will do what he did against Kongo and Rothwell. They will be standing for about 15 seconds, then Cain will go for the takedown and ground and pound him. Nog's reactions are slower now and he won't be able to stop Cain from taking him down and keeping him there.

Cain by UD, because he won't stop Nog.

I highly doubt Nog is afraid of being stuck on the ground..if anything that should be cains nightmare lol he takes nog down and cant get back up before one of his limbs is seperated from his body.

LHW: Wandy, Rampage, Liddell

nobody ever mentions Cain is a BJJ prodigy and world champion. Couple that with likely the best techniqual wrestling in the division and i think it makes for one, really, really tough sub for Nog.

The standup is really what im looking forward to. I hope Cain is gonna surprise ppl a bit. If the nerves get to him he may be in trouble standing tho but im positive he will secure a TD whenever he wants it.

For all the talk of Cains power (or lack thereof) he has 3x as many wins via (t)ko as Minotauro in 1/6th of the fights. Im not sure if Cain can TKO Nog but i think it's much more likely then Nog winning TKO. Cain has a chin and he is young and hungry, should be a good one.

Amazing Card! I'm hyped for every single fight. Kind of sucks that Jardine will probably be done with the UFC if he loses though. Cro Cop still has one more fight if he loses I believe so obviously I hope he wins but I don't think he's in as much danger as Jardine. Not to mention the fact he is facing Ryan Bader. I still have faith in both of them.

Stand up looked kinda weak angainst Kongo, chin look a little weak too !......3x as many (t)ko ? pretty impressive when the only top ten HW he fought took him apart while they were standing.

I can't wait for this. I'm going to watch it live. Its starts at 11:45am but theres probably an hour or two delay for people watching it on One HD.

Velasquez has to get a title shot if he beats Nougeria, especially if he stops him but to be honest I'm more excited for Wanderlai vs. Bisping.
