    If Kongo was able to tag and drop Cain, imagine what a more well rounded, quicker, and better striker, like Gustafsson, would do. As we saw in the Jones fight, he's not easy to take down and has been working daily with guys like Phil Davis.

    I honestly see Cain losing this fight pretty decisively.

    cain is better since he fought kongo. i know it doesn't make sense but cain is a much more explosive wrestler than davis. i don't think cain would have much trouble taking gustafsson down, hes got a lot more lower body strength.

    Especially if you could get a time machine and get the Cain from 2009 and transport him into to the present and make him fight the Alexander that just fought Jones..

    He'd have all the trouble in the world trying to take him down, because of Gustafsson movement, let alone strength.

    Guy has a great fight and all of a sudden he can become the heavyweight champion. Go ban yourself for saying such shit.

    Alex moves faster than JDS, his takedown defense is on point. Cain isn't going to get any easy take downs and can he keep it up for 5 rounds? His chin has been proven to crack, I don't see how he can get inside on Gustafsson without eating a ton of shots.

    Once he beats Jones (again), he'll move up, tool Cain, and THEN have a superfight with McGreGOAT.

    The Irishman will obviously ragdoll him, of course, but it will have been a good run!

    Gustaffson fights at LHW for a reason.

    He'd get clobbered at HW.

    Hell, he probably only fights at a ~10lb difference than Cain, and still he's scared of Cain and other HW's.

    Gus has an IRON chin, Cain has pillow fists and a questionable chin. Ain't gonna happen. I'd go as far as to say that Phil Davis wrestling as good as Cain's wrestling. Nobody has been able to stop Jon's takedowns until Gus and that's including amazing TDD from guys like Lyoto, Rampage, and Rashad. That has to count for something.

    If this was true, he'd be fighting at heavyweight. Cain would be to much for him.

    Cain has pillow fists? Jesus, didn't that myth get shattered when Cain ruined Nogueira?
