way to many options. I agree, JDS is and excellent striker but people forget that cain is a great striker too.... he is just more aggressive. On top of being easily one of the best wrestlers in the heavyweight division, if not the best.
I actually thought Cigano would KO Cain in the 2nd or maybe 3rd round before he would get gassed out but man did he proved me wrong.
The overhand right hook he landed on Cain's temple was a total BOMB and i knew Cain could no way in hell recover from it.
And what the bloody hell was Cain thinking of when he decided to go toe to toe with Cigano?!
He should of kept his distance, throw some combos and gone for more takedowns so that he would put his high pace on Cigano which would of helped him in the later rounds.
Congrats to Cigano, he knew exactly how to finish off Cain quick and easy.

I was rooting for Cain and I';m glad he won (though I did feel pretty bad for Junior afterwards, especially considering he's a pretty good guy). But that being said you've gotta think that skillwise Junior has what it takes to emerge the victor out of the two of them. His defencive wrestling looked absolutely amazing in the fight, as did his chin, we know he has power and is one of the most skilled strikers at HW. Not sure what went wrong but I dont think he was his usual self for sure. After the fight at the hospital he was saying that he was maybe thinking too much about the takedown and that he should have relied on his Jits a bit more, and I really have gotta agree. When he was fresh he was basically not being held down, so if he didn;t focus ond efending the takedown so much and just freed up his stirking, I think he culd have finished the fight like he did the first time (especially consideirng this is eavyweight we are talking about, and Junior is one of the harder hitters in the division, and Cain doesnt have the best chin at HW).
Looks like I was wrong. That sucks, haven't been this bummed by a fight since Machida got choked by Jones.
JDS stayed in the fight like a champion though, no wonder why he walks out to Rocky music.
Felt really bad for him after the fight. He was like "Why are you guys doing that?" as the assholes in the crowd were booing him after he lost his belt and gave everything he had for 25 minutes.
I can't wait until Junior is back in action, he's a great fighter and a great person. I would really like to see a rubber match. If Cain beats him again, more power to him, but I'm pulling for my boy Junior all the way.
