glad to see hes so humble, and no1 really should consider him numer 1 right now, rather you like it or not cain and overeem at the top is pure speculation for now

cain is far from proven and his most solid win is lesnar...or nog i guess, sure he has a lot of skill, so does overeem...but they still havent proven to me that they are the best

cain will prove it once he beats JDS, carwin, and maybe mir...even though mir isnt even top 5 anymore, hes still a credible HW that cain hasnt beat

One thing about both Overeem and Cain that i admire is, they are NOT company men. They big up fighters from other orgs and freely admit to not knowing if they are the best but both are willing to put it on the line and find out.

Both speak with a class and humility that was missing dearly when Brock was the "baddest man on the planet" and the 1st to let you know it.

Cain earned even more respect from me. I'm sure he'd be happy about it.

Why is everyone thinking so much about Overeem? IMO that fight is no problem for Cain. The dude has a good chin and good recovery and great wrestling and good cardio, anyone who doesn't think Reem is on his back in 10 seconds and stays there is in denial. Reem would be gassed trying to defend off his back and it'd be over.



Now Cain vs Werdum, THAT is a match I'd pay to see. I'd say they're both very close striking wise, one with world class wrestling one with world class BJJ... I hope we see it someday.

Cain would wreck Werdum worse than JDS did!

On topic: what Cain said is just another proof - if needed - that the top fighters know how to appreciate each other.

And he is right: if they haven't fought each other - how can you say who is better?!

For us - the fans - it feels easy: sitting in front of a screen and using the might keyboard to PREDICT fights.
SOme get it right and some get it wrong. And next time, it can be the other way arround.

But, they - the fighters - know better!
A real fighter knows that he can't be considered better than the other guy, untill they don't fight!
It's just the way a fighter thinks!

That's why they're fighters and we are *keynoard warriors* (at least 95% of us).

Two of the scariest dudes in the HW divison - The Reem and Cain Velasquez are both so humble and respectful. Their not biased and know how the stuff goes.

People act like putting Cain in the SF tourny would have been a fair thing for the UFC. The UFC then has 1 way of winning it while SF has 8 ways of winning it. It would have been awesome if Scott Coker picked 8 Fighters and Dana White picked 8 fighters and then they went against each other on the brackets. The epicness of that tournament would be legendary.

After what's happened at the SF Grand Prix. Their org will go on a decline and Overeem will be the second to head to UFC leaving his title followed by Nick Diaz, Big Foot, and possibily Sergei. The UFC should never have released Werdum. He's always been a very underrated top HW.

That would effectively terminate SF's heavy weight division.
