I bet 50 lbs of muscle Brock can keep Cain on the ground without too much trouble. one could make the argument also that it is just as difficult to keep a heavily muscled Frank Mir on his back as it is Cain Velasquez. Watch his fights, Brock actually has really good positioning and moves remarkably fast when on top of his opponents.
Brock has the size and strength advantage but Cain is going to make him fight a high paced fight and Brock will tire by the middle of the 2nd round.
I have seen nothing from Brock's previous fights or athletic career that would suggest he will gas in 1 and a half rounds.
Cain's hands may be quicker than Brock's, but after seeing how many shots Brock took from Carwin to the head (and we are talking about one of if not the hardest hitting fighter in MMA) I'm kind of thinking...."who cares?" Brock's skull must be lined with 3'' of steel.
I don't care much for Brock at all....it irks me that he is the HW champ. But he is an athletic freak of nature who is an absolute donkey kong inside the octagon.
