The question is, how could he possibly not have been prepared for that game plan Cain used? When a fighter looses a fight, and in that fight he was being tentative, in the rematch he is almost always more aggressive. Cain's only option to beat JDS was be more agressive/start fast, since otherwise would risk getting knocked out.
