    That fight was exactly why I joke with my friends that if I ever HAD to pick a fight with one of them it'd be JDS. It'd be over quickly from a punch I likely won't see and I likely wouldn't feel a thing whereas with Cain he's relentless and merciless in there.

    JDS really should get checked for TBI after that fight.

    I don't get it either? JDS is my favorite HW and it happened! lol

    I think that fight showed that JDS is tough as nails, and he showed a lot of heart getting back up after all the abuse and just kept swinging. Cain put in a great performance though. He had a good game plan and he executed it perfectly. On top of that it's not like he didn't try to finish him, he really went all out.

    The only think I really questioned about Cain during that fight is, why not look for a submission? It seemed like that didn't even cross his mind during the fight. I get that he's a wrestler and maybe he was more comfortable having top position, but there were several opportunities he could have taken JDS' back or set up some other kind of submission. Just something I noticed....

    I don't argue the beatdown but from a lot of the responses I read it seems as if people on here think Cain would beat JDS 100 out of 100 times. I think that is pretty disrespectful of JDS and he needs some defending. JDS was stuffing take downs and getting back to his feet in round 5 after taking a massive amount of damage, it really looked like he had more in the tank then Cain did.

    On a side note, the more I think about Cormier vs Barnett, the more I think Cormier is going to walk through the entire division. That guy was throwing big punches the entire fight and really seems to have the best gas tank in the HW division by far.

    Yeh, I don't get that either... Cain threw some good punches, JDS is tough as nails.

    If anything, Cain seemed to be trying to perserve his cardio as he definitely looked a little worn; and that's completely reasonable after throwing the punches he did and going for the takedowns he did. It was a great performance and I don't think you can take away from it.

    That said, I absolutely think JDS still has a decent chance in a rematch. They might just go back and forth a few times that way, and that's awesome.

    I just hope he has to fight at least one (preferably) two fights before a rematch. As a fan, I prefer a little time between those for build up and for the fighters to evolve.

    JDS is best on the outside moving a lot, and Cain is probably the best swarmer in the sport so it's just not going to work if he plays his normal game. I think his only chance is to play along the cage like Anderson has been doing lately and wear Cain down. If he can learn the strategy, I think he'd do much better in the rematch.
