Fun little fight, Cain should take it though... Either by TKO or decision

Bigfoot is huge but lacks the wrestling ability of Velasquez, so Cain will dictate this fight quite easily

im trying to remember the last time this happened in the MW or LHW division? seems like one of the few divisions where guys come up instead of facing a top 5 guy right out of the gate...wonder why, or am i just forgetting some fights?

This fight is not a done deal yet BTW:

According to those with very good knowledge of the situation, Velasquez-Bigfoot is far from a done deal.

If that is the kind of fight they give to a Strikeforce GP semifinalist what would they throw at Cormier/Barnett if they came over after their battle? It seems like a good fight for Cain and Bigfoot but I wonder who Mir's gonna have left to fight.

That's what I was thinking....That's the best way to beat Cain...He's shown he doesn't take a Punch that good

I'm really surprised by the unanimity in this thread for Cain, i agree he will be the big favourite but this is not a foregone conlusion at all.

Well I think people are just calling it like they see it - me included...

Bigfoot has size and BJJ, but the rest seems to favor Cain, especially the wrestling
