I would agree that Cormier does many things better than Cain.

What really sets Cain apart is the ability to move like fucking ferret on speed WHILE employing efficient, crisp techniques.

It's really insane.

Cain's combos are mixed up with his wrestling a lot better, but they are very similar. I was watching DC mixing it up, and he reminded me so much of Cain! I just think Cain is more effective with his.


DC said that Cain is faster with his combos as well, which I would have to agree with. DC also said that Cain is a better boxer, that Cain "cuts angles" better than he does.

One thing I can definitely agree with you on is.. DC is harder to hit! lol Cain doesn't play safe like DC does (hence the reason people have given him the name 'Decision Dan'). Cain literally just walks through your punches, and this could be a problem for him in the long run if he doesn't step up his defense. DC's pace is slower because he steps back a lot and is willing to trade. Cain doesn't seem to like to trade, but would rather just bully you.
Cormier's combos with his hands and his defence against punches is better than Cain's.
Cormier has a better jab, a very good left hook both to the body and the head, a better right uppercut than Cain , a very good right hook and he has overall better body punches. And his headmovement is unarguably better

Cain is a better fighter than DC, I don't think there's any doubt about that. He has a higher pace, more pressure, mixes it up better, and a much bigger frame. DC has a very small frame which will be his biggest problem against Jones.

But DC does have more raw grappling strength. And better head movement.

Jones fights smaller fighters. DC would have clinch fucked Glover for instance just as bad, and actually been able to get more TDs. Just my opinion but I'm confident in it.

Jones does NOT want to be in the clinch with DC. This is different than all his past opponents where Jones had a large to massive clinch advantage.

Hendo is called "Decision Dan", when did people start calling DC "Decision Dan"? Are you a new fan unfamiliar with Hendo's nick or am I not in the loop and people have given this name to DC which doesn't make any sense since Hendo was called this because of all his split decision wins.
