C'mon, just 'cause Cain mashed Junior against the fence doesn't mean he's always going to do it.
And a double jab-cross is used quite often, Diaz bros do it, GSP does it, Hominick did it pretty often, IIRC, Holloway also does it. Usually the technical strikers will do things like this, actually set things up with the jab. Dillashaw has probably done it as well, but I can't remember, he's all over the place with that footwork and awesome head movement.
I guess Werdum really saw some holes in Browne's defense, he really beat the guy up all night. You usually see pro boxers utilize things like a double jab-cross, but some fighters do it in MMA, sadly, most of them will just throw a right hand, a single jab-low kick, etc. Still, they're very effective at the highest level, but to see a guy pick someone apart with ease like GSP, or see someone just absolutely destroy their opponent like the Diaz's every once in a while with a much higher level of boxing, it's nice than the standard spammed overhand.
