  1. Charticus.. says:

    Cain is the man .. Told you it was a lucky punch in the first fight!! BUHAHAHAHA ..

  2. Charticus.. says:

    Was that jds or big nog fighting Cain.. I couldn’t tell the difference!

  3. husky says:

    First fight was not a “lucky” punch. Cain went in injured and it landed. It was more like a handicapped Cain vs Dos santos, so to say that the punch or any successful punch is lucky is foolish.

    Aside from that Cains gonna rule the heavy weight division for awhile. Only threat at this point of Alistair Overeem, but I predict Cain will outwork him.

  4. krafty11 says:

    Cain was 11 for 33 on td attempts.. Cain was out boxing JDS as well. Cain wanted it more and it showed. But JDS does have a serious chin. He got tagged multiple times and still made it 5 rounds. When is the trilogy fight?? lolz!

  5. em says:

    Cain pressured JDS the whole fight.

    I thought JDS would start to put pressure on Cain after stuffing Cain’s takedowns in the first round, but he definitely seemed off his game. Cain landed some heavy shots in the first and almost put him away. Props to JDS for hanging 5 rounds when he could have easily quit.

    I wonder if changing camps and training elsewhere had any effect on JDS. Anxious to see who these guys will face next.
