    Heard him on the MMA show on the fan590 on Friday night talking about his training and Luke no longer with aka. He mentioned a couple of times how expensive it was to live and train in San Jose.

    Cain has been out of action far too long far too many injruies. He was not going to be the cain that was on the rise. Ufc used him to out ngannou over because he is a big name, and cain could use the pay cheque.

    Interesting theory. Yeah no idea why people would live in San Jose due to cost.

    Cain didn't look the part, he winged a few kicks and regardless if Francis's punches caused it, his knee is fuct again. Sad but he was done after 200. He should however continue to travel doing Martial Arts episodes. That Senegal one was cool.

    San Jose is 25 meter above sea level bro.

    No idea how much that is in your 56/32/17/4/3 system though.

    UFC fighters can't afford to work for UFC.

    Velasquez's biggest foe has been his own brittle body.

    Guy just can't prevent an endless avalanche of injuries.

    we all age differently, and Cain's body hasn't reacted well to it. Plus he has too many nagging injuries, so it's hard to get back from those.

    When you compared Cain as he stood next to Ngannou in the octagon it made me wonder where all of Cain's muscles went. He just looked old and fragile and muscleless. It's as if he never trained for those two and a half years he was out of action.

    Ngannou didn’t need putting over.
