    Still nobody has explained why i should be more impressed by jds for beating carwin than cain for beating lesnar.... other than sputtering dribble like "lesnar is overrated", and their evidence for this is that cain beat lesnar.

    nobody has explained why beating a nogueira who just destroyed randy couture is less impressive than beating a werdum who a year and a half out from getting controlled by arlovski.

    And you still haven't acknowledged that JDS also beat Nelson, Struve and Gonzaga. It's about the depth. Here is their UFC wins to date

    Cain - Morris, O'Brien, Stojnic, Kongo, Rothwell, Nog, Brock, (Bigfoot)

    JDS - Werdum, Struve, CroCop, Yvel, Gonzaga, Nelson, Carwin, (Cain, Mir)

    Even removing Mir, Cain and Bigfoot, JDS had a tougher overall road.

    And Carwin beat the piss out of Brock. If Herb had been the ref it would have ended in the first.

    Werdum wasn't coming off a loss to Arlovski. He was coming off back to back wins against Vera (who beat Mir, unlike Nog since you want to get all MMAth on us) and Gonzaga. If you think 'it was recent enough' then Nog was coming off making Mir look like Ali.

    i don't understand why brock is included on cain's list. that was the guy he fought for the title, it wasn't part of his resume leading up the title. if you're going to include brock for cain then you should include cain for dos santos :p

    I'm willing to argue the handicapped JDS resume and pretend we're arguing who had the tougher run leading up to Cain/JDS 1. It's not one-sided, but I think the stronger argument is for JDS. Obviously, if you include Cain and the Mir win vs. the Bigfoot win it becomes completely one-sided.

    Fairly legit argument.

    But if Cain took out the better competition, and for now we can agree that it's JDS > Cain, doesn't that sort of validate JDS' run as being better?

    This is correct, definitely more so than "Kane."

    because these are more protected content,so watching them is a little different.

    Regular uploaded youtube videos are basically mp4 and flv files sitting on a server.These can buffer up as much as they want because the file size is known and there is actually an end to the media file.

    Videos like these UFC videos use a streaming protocol, therefore they are basically acting like live streams. Not too much buffering can happen,so unless the connection is absolutely perfect,you are going to have glitches. If too many people watching,or the servers are crap, you will have a slow and crappy experience.

    I have a 250mbps connection and i'm getting a lot of pauses during viewing.
