    Big foot’s confidence is at a high, but the one thing about CAIN is that his head has always been the same.. Very dependable and consistent. I think BIG FOOT will be ready for his big punch early.. his best bet is to stick and move and not get in within Cain’s reach.. as if Cain’s gets ahold of him, he can do many damaging things.. I will pick Cain in 2…. Big Foot will get through round one, but Cain will finish him in 2… only my opinion..
