    I can understand if the guy needs a paycheck, but in reality he should hang the gloves up and invest the money he's got on a new career (or relax if he has plenty money in the bank). At some point he is going to ruin himself so bad that he will have injuries just doing routine things in a day of life.

    This is that point in a lot of fighters' careers where they start taking one loss after another because they keep chasing that final moment of glory that never comes instead of accepting that the game has passed them by. Hopefully Cain is smarter than that and just stays retired.

    But, HW is sad and pathetic, so even if Cain doesn't come back in November 2020, he'll still be ranked in the top 5.

    It doesn't help Cain that he looked spectacular the last time that he was healthy against Browne.

    There's also the fact that HW is an incredibly weak division where any name fighter is always a big win away from a title shot.

    IMO we'll see at least a couple more fights out of Cain. It might take 2-3 more years, but we'll see them.

    I had hopes for Cain but after that win and getting injured again I think it's time to give it up. Dude is not getting younger and keeps getting shelved.

    You don't age in MMA according to the number of years; you age according to the fights that you've logged. By that standard, Cain Velasquez is a young whippersnapper with a long career ahead of him.

    (OK. I'm done with the sarcasm)

    That would qualify as a quick turnaround for Cain
