I think Cain was letting JDS up. This causes JDS to use his own energy every time he tried to get up, and once Cain has him on the fence, down he goes again, and this process gets repeated round after round.
As for GSP and his takedowns, the reason he lasts longer on the ground is because he usually tries to end up in guard. Then it takes one or two minutes to pass guard. With Cain, he takes someone down so he ends up in side control or on someone's back. Another key difference is that GSP fights more explosive fighters that can burst out in later rounds and in the heavyweight division, if it's in the second or later rounds, the HW's energy is probably shot by then..
