I think Cain is the better fighter, between the two. He's demonstrated more versatility over the course of his UFC career, and he put that on demonstration for 10 rounds.

Pressuring any stand-up fighter who relies on establishing range and rhythm is a good path to victory, but Cain has the unique tools to do so, in the form of takedown threat, aggressive GnP, and the cardio to continue at such a pace. The fact that he also has a solid striking repertoire also poses a threat, as he commits to a large volume of offense.

If another fighter tries to do that to JDS they will gas in a hurry, and it is clear that JDS can take a pounding for a long time. If Reem tried that vs JDS he would not make it out of the 1st round.
I agree, and part of the fight is being able to weather a storm. But when the storm doesn't stop, you just lose rounds, in the case of Cain. He's a unique fighter.
