    A knee injury affects footwork and makes an individual an easier target. It will not change the outcome of every fight but it will change a fighter's mentality coming into the fight which is huge.

    Rampage, I have no idea what you did to make people take you so seriously here/flame you. Its as though sarcasm doesn't exist to people when you use it to make a point.

    I see both sides. I'd say a bum knee would restrict movement to land and avoid strikes. Other side it only went 64Sec if the knee couldnt last that long[ didn't rewatch for any leg kicks to it] Cain should of pulled out.

    Cain didn't use it for a excuss than and shows he don't want it for a excuss now. As Maz says "Lets get it on" and see if there's any difference.

    Somebody should tell Cain that the injury story adds intrigue to this fight. People who are put off by seeing the same fight again might be more interested if they find out the guy who lost had a significant injury last time.

    Jesus Fuck man! I believe the point of the story is that he's a stand up guy who fights whether injured or not. When fighting injured he doesn't make excuses and actually tried to hide the fact.

    For what it's worth I've fought with a bad knee. Had three surgeries between the two. It affects your ability to plant, pivot, move laterally, even duck, bob and weave. You feel pain and weakness and it restricts normal movement. Doesn't mean he lost because of it, but depending on severity everything in the stand up would be off including timing.

    Man, this is the second or third time this week we've had a sarcasm fail with Rampage and the forum.

    Edit: I'm defending Rampage's comment, not attacking him (although I don't actually get the joke therein)

    I see what folks are saying about the knee being a very serious injury and one that impacts a huge part of Cain's game - his takedowns, his movement, even his power in throwing hands. But I'm agreed with FG that he wasn't going to win regardless. I think JDS is a horrible stylistic matchup for him. I hope I'm wrong and that tomorrow is an amazing fight, but I'm betting it'll be short.
