JDS is the superior striker, easily.
So Cain is a better mixed martial artist then

Beating someone up for 25 minutes is harder than clipping another in the first minute of a fight.

The second fight for sure, in my opinion.

Im sorry but for you to say JDS impressed you more then Cain did in their last 2 fights is absurd.
JDS KOed Cain within a couple of minutes and in their next fight Cain compleatley destroyed JDS for 5 straight rounds with some rounds being 10-8.
To suggest that you were more impressed with JDS then Cain in the second fight is absurd and laughable and shows your bias for Brazilian fighters and shows you cant be objective at all when it comes to discussing Brazilian fighters.

Yes I was impressed with JDS heart and toughness he showed me alot but come on already, to suggest that JDS impressed you more then Cain in the second fight is flat out laughable. Again Im calling it now , JDS is losing Sat night and Im a huge JDS fan.
And so what? Do you ALWAYS agree with the poll?
I don't.
That doesn't make me wrong. That makes me someone who can think by myself and is not swayed by the majority.

And as I noted, either can win. But only retards think this is a walk in the park fopr either guy (and i say this for BOTH guys.

I was not impressed with Junior's fighting skill, but with his heart.
How many fighters you think could withstand Cain's pace for 5 rounds?
How many fighters, exhausted as JDS was, would not give in to Cain's pressure?
If you can't see this, if you can't be impressed by this, it shows YOU are the hater.

I don't have bias towards Brazilian fighters.
If anything, I don't mind either guy winning, for BOTH are great guys and display awesome skills (I do think that Junior is more ... camera-friendly, but that has nothing to do with MMA skills).

And yes, I was more impressed with Junior's heart than Cain's inability to put him away.
I mean, Cain was just Cain. A pressure cooker who didn't let up for the full 25 minutes, but that's what you come to expect from him.
But I never expected Junior to survive all that beating.

It amazes me you can't see that.

the most impressive thing about the rematch was the chin and heart of JDS

Cain gave an impressive performance in its own right but he wasn't able to finish a clearly devastated JDS for 5 full rounds

voted for JDS KO, not even close

Obiously he knows better than you because he's an "educated" and "intelligent" fan who makes "accurate" assumptions based on his personal delusional opinions. In all seriousness though, MarkHammer, why would you choose to have such a narrow-minded viewpoint when you can just choose not to have such a narrow-minded viewpoint? That's self-deception at its finest.

IMO, JDS just fought really stupidly in the second fight. When he stuffed Cain's TD attempts, he had multiple opportunities to throw some good punches and hurt Cain, but he just ran away for mysterious reasons. Who knows, maybe he wanted a slugfest.

What about a 50-43 UD AND a finish?

Beautiful! Yes yes yes yes yes! haha

Sanchez, BJ Penn, Cain
Wish I could see the BJ Penn of UFC 107 (vs Diego) just 1 more time inside the octagon. That BJ destroys any LW/WW. He came just for 1 night into this world and then left :'(
