man... it would be awesome if cain finds a way to win. but...


i'm not a big junior fan, but little by little i'm starting to resent the crowd that feel he's still unproven and "shaky" as the HW king. IMO the dude is a badass, swift-footed punching beast who's nightmarish to take down and more dangerous off his back then ever (just earned his BB in BJJ).


cain is an awesome fighter full of heart and tremendous intensity, but his biggest flaws play a whole lot in to JDS game IMO.

I think those two are both on another level in the heavyweight division. Hopefully they both come to this fight healthy and are able to put on a show.
With that being said I think they are both dangerous and both would win 5 out of 10 times. I think if Cain can come out really aggressive and catch JDS off guard he'll have a good shot of putting him on his back. And only god knows how JDS will handle that situation. But I personally think JDS will win because he's never been in any trouble or had any difficulty with an opponent. But Cain is a different animal and I know he's too smart to come out like he did last time and try and strike with JDS.

It could go either way. It will depend on who is the better man that night.

Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II Pre-Fight Press Conference

Play by Play:
1. Winner of JDS vs. Cain wins a Harley, sort of hilarious idea if you've seen the roads of Urban Brazil.
2. JDS had flight issues getting to Vegas, but says he has no issues.
3. Neither man has any injuries.
4. JDS believes the fight will last longer than last time.
5. Cain is channelling his inner Mexican to steal an upset like Marquez scored over Pacquiao in the same venue a few weeks ago.
6. Surprise, surprise. There's a lot of emphasis on Brazil vs. Mexico here.
7. Not a heck of a lot of interesting questions, both guys are going to "do their best out there Saturday night"

You'd think the UFC wouldn't want their fighters riding motorcycles. If I was a fighter and won one, I'd be selling it immediately.

JDS is dope, big fan, but I feel like he is really overrated. I think Cain exposes his ground game and stops him via gnp rd 3 this time.

Lol considering Frank Mir broke his femur in a bike accident and ended up having his prime years taken from him plus a bad drug habit, I agree.

Heh, I'm annoyed at the crowd that think he's unstoppable and will smash everyone.

Apparently, both guys were injured the first time they fought, so it should be a different fight this time around. I'm hoping it goes at least 1 round. I think Cain should push the cardio and try to tire JDS out. He gassed against Nelson and ate some shots in that fight. I'm not really a big fan of either guy, but I guess I'll root for Cain.

yea, i hear that. kind of the chronic sporting fan's reaction: their team / guy is either great or it sucks. but it's always good to come across the few who can keep it real.



jackson slack just wrote a really interesting article on how to beat JDS:
http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/12/2...ior-dos-santos

he pointed out that junior has very 'fencing' style footwork. i hadn't really thought of it that way but it seems to be a perfect description. he also says that cain's best bet is probably to push JDS to the fence and use dirty boxing. yea, well... good luck with that.

If Cain makes it out of the first 2 and 1/2 rounds without getting his head blasted off things become very interesting, Cain's got the best cardio out and he will probably again throw leg kicks which JDS does not really check. Cain has to get this fight into deep waters and maybe hold JDS against the cage (easier said than done) for the first portion of the fight.

But Cain's chin/head is really easy to find it seems and the two good strikers hes faced in his career blasted the living crap out of him (kongo/JDS), imo he shouldn't even be getting a title shot with that bs win over a blind Bigfoot that should have been stopped before Bigfoot was trashed when he couldn't see cause of all the blood terrible refing.

I really hope JDS wins so we can see him vs Reem in the best HW fight of all time and on top of that I really enjoy seeing Cain lose. None the less semi interesting match up.

I really hope this is a one time only thing. Don't want Goldie to be replaced. :/
