Does Cain even have a fight scheduled? Or is he semi retired?

    I remember he was supposed to fight Werdum but he had a back injury. He literally had bone spurs in his vertebrae and thought the commission' would allow him to fight. Lol literally scheduled the surgery right after the fight. This guy is perpetually injured. His body is telling him something. Stop!!!

    thinks he is retired, but he doesn't wanna come out and declare it because he'll lose money by doing so, so he will keep the illusion up for his sponsors and the UFC until he is forced to give it up.

    The HurriCain was probably the best HW we were ever going to see. He had no business losing to either JDS or Werdum but his twin Old Man Sea Level No Training All Injury Cain kept showing up. One of the most disappointing careers I can remember.

    It's probably better he retires tbh and I say that as a long time disappointed fan.

    Number of fights doesn't tell the whole story, those could be easy fights when the fighter took zero damage.

    Number and severity of the injures is more relevant and Cain had an injuries plagued career, Fedor and Overeem, to my knowledge, had zero major injuries.

    Some bodies are just injury prone & some are durable as can be. Seems to be the case in every sport. But yeah Cain seems to be a bit extreme when it comes to an injury prone body

    Sherdog proclaimed Cain the greatest heavyweight ever after like 6 fights so he’s had 10 since then.

    And here in my foolishness I thought Cain might appear on the Nye card. He's probably in a wheel chair as we speak. And not one of those self propelled wheel chairs. Fully motorized. With a breathing tube because his lungs decided to get injured too.

    Why was he the best? He had ok stand up and good wrestling.
    Not even close to the most complete hw we’ve seen.

    A guy like werdum will beat Cain more often than not.
    As werdum dictates where the fight will be. Cain isn’t good enough on the feeet or clinch to bother werdum and Cain’s instinct is the takedown where he is no match for Fabricio.

    The Mexican didn’t know about Mexico City altitude?
    That’s ducking hilarious.

    Personally, I prefer when he's not fighting. Saves us from having half of Sherdog bitch about his tattoo around the clock.
