Cain has only gone to a 3-round decision once in his entire UFC career. And even then, outside of a few punches that he got hit with, he was dominating the entire time. The idea that Cain has an "unlimited gas tank" is, quite frankly, hearsay. JDS is someone that's going to be able to test Cain's limits as a fighter for rounds on end.
The only reason JDS looked somewhat sluggish after the fight with Nelson is because he was unloading power shot after power shot on him for 3 straight rounds. No other fighter in the heavyweight division would be able to replicate what Nelson did that night and absorb that kind of continual assault. We've seen the kind of devastating KO power that JDS brings to the table.
I'm not even suggesting that JDS wins the fight, but cardio is not going to be a determining factor.

Ahaha, funny to see my 7 months' opinion. The HW division is getting much more fun right now thanks to SF.
Anyway, as I have been saying for a couple months from now, JDS is more accomplished MMA fighter then Cain. He fought most of the big names, had Werdum has his FIRST UFC fight and he pretty much cleaned the UFC HW division by himself.
Also, Cain only fought 2 big names, a Big Nog who is FAR from his prime right now and Brock, a guy who shouldn't have been the HW champion to begining with, I can think of at least 5 or 6 HW's who can beat them, I also think that the improved cardio version of Carwin would murder Brock (in fact, I can say I am more impressed with Carwin's defeat to Cigano then most of his victories).
Also, while Cain looks good, I think JDS has the right tools to beat him, meaning better stand up with powerful punches, something Cain doesn't like (see the Kongo fight, he was dropped more then once and didn't even take that much damage). And Cain comes from a injury, which really doesn't help with your performances.
So with all this, JDS will be the favourite. Also, I want to point out how the UFC HW division has been in the dark ages like forever. 2 guys with barely over 20 fights when you combine both their records TOGETHER are the 2 best fighters of the division. That says something.
