    Cain by far, he has only injuries to take him off fights
    Khabib has injuries, ramadan and missing weight, that's 3 times less reliable than Cain

    They're both equally reliable to "no show".

    Cain has more reliable reasons for pulling out of fights with real injuries seems to be a fact, not mysteriously missing weight then going to secret hospitals etc.

    Cain is a UFC champ who has only missed due to injury-
    granted, stupid, avoidable injury,

    but easier for me to accept than religious holidays, weight, or his dads management of career.

    MOST IMPORTANT:
    at least Cain doesn't run his mouth about others ducking.

    He doesn't show up enough,
    but when he does its against top-tier competition and he always competes.

    But Cain is injured more often. Khabib has the edge due to factors like Ramadan and a much more competitive division (which should require more consistency) but there is not a big gap between them.

    Cain is a brutal two time HW champ finishing machine who has had a series of annoying injuries.

    The other is Khabib.

    Both had some hard times recently..

    I would pick Cain. Hope for a much better 2018 for both of them.
