Since most likely cain won't be coming back to mma what do you guys think about this matchup? Cain had some of the most entertaining and brutal fights period. That gave him respect and huge fan base but after watching closely every single of his fights I just don't see him beating Stipe. Why? He just drinks too much damage and Stipe has razor aim and power which is still underrated. Cains wresteling? I don't know, he is more of a brawler than tehnical wrestler unlike Stipe. Cardio? Yes its fine, when he gets super tired, he keeps coming unlike most of the fighters playing passive when tired. This probably wouldn't benefit him vs Stipe because look how it went vs Werdum who didn't go full brawl vs Cain and just used precise shots to chop him down. You can say sea level this, sea level that but Werdum took his soul in that fight. Stipe fought Werdum in Brazil and KOd him in first round. Stipe broke the record of the most title defenses and had beaten toughest opponents on their highest winstreaks. That alone should be enough to not even count Cain in the discussion when in reality Cain is Cain because of him vs JDS trilogy but thats pretty much it.
