Jesus..... panties...... bunching all over the place.











You're not very bright are you?

No kidding man. The guy is a fruitloop. Thanks for the heads up man.

His striking isn't in the same level as some guys like JDS,Hunt,Reem,but he compensates it by wall n stalling or taking them down to wear them out so that they're too tired to throw anything.

Basically,his cardio and wrestling are his main weapon,because his striking and ground game(bottom game) aren't really good.
You are so incredibly full of shit. Cain thoroughly outstruck JDS twice by being the better striker. Having more power in your punches doesn't make you a better striker than someone with vastly superior technique. And he was able to stop JDS and send him to the hospital with all that "stalling". You reek of butthurt.

Hit Kongo 300 times and couldn't finish the job.

Cain is a beast but let's not pretend even for a second he has vicious power and finishing ability because he doesn't.

Oh forgot lesnar the unfinishable.
It's pretty evident he has finishing ability, because he's finished 11 out of 13.... We need to separate 1 punch knock out power and finishing ability because they are clearly not the same thing. Jones is another example, he doesn't have 1 punch knock out power at all but he's great at finishing his opponent.

That's absolutely true, they are different things. But Cain hits hard enough to prevent guys from comfortably standing and trading. In other words, they know he can still hurt them and finish them. That is why I don't consider it a weakness. If he had pillow fists and guys were eager to stand with him and just advanced like he wasn't there, that would be another story.
