Also Cain is not fighting for a decision because he wants to or that is his style. He is fighting for the decision because his current skill set will be almost impossible to finish Nog. Unless of course he wrestles him to death.
Cains GnP is one of the most active in the sport, if Nogs game plan is to try and stay in his guard when he gets taken down (do we all agree, Nog will be taken down?? I dont see a way for him to stop it, he isnt fast, strong or well versed in TDD enough to stop Cains TDs imo, we agree here at least??) and try to go for subs and sweeps its gonna be a long night for him. Cain is much better versed in a hybred wrestling/bjj background then anybody Nog has ever subbed and he doesnt gas.

The only way i think Cain gets subbed is if he gets rocked on the feet 1st and im not entirely sure Minotauro can do that either.

It is a very interesting fight in that i think its unlikely Cain can finish Minotauro and i think its unlikely that Minotauro can sub Cain so they will both have to look for a different way to win or grind out a victory which i just feel suites Cains style much better. Cain likes to come out, set the pace and really control fights. Alot of times Minotauro seems to have a slow pace and often has fights dictated to him and he pulls of a sub or sweep etc etc. If he cant get the sub i think he will be behind on points for sure and get desperate late. Cains pace is way too fast unless Nog can find a way to slow him down.

Altho alot of times when fights look like a stalemate on paper somebody gets KTFO lol

I think some peole need to go back and watch some of Nogs big fights, after the initial storm he hung quite well with sylvia standing and beat some better ground fighters Than Cain of his back without subs. he has the most active gaurd in MMA and strikes more off his back than most guys do in his gaurd.

The guy is 8 and 2 since his last Fedor fight losing a razor thin split to Barnett which i thought he won (avenged decisivly in the rematch) and a loss to Mir (staff infection make you extremly weak and slow)

I dont think anyone who would say he he is a shell of his former self really knows much about the guy....IMO he still the #2 HW in the world and there are goona be alot more believers after this fight......Cain is a good fighter and has a ton of potential but is still a rookie By Nogs standerds.
