    He pulls out every time he has a fight so he didn't want to do it again, so he kept saying that he's injured but he's still willing to fight so eventually they pulled him.

    I don't think it's some master plan or anything. But if he was truly hungry to fight, he clearly wouldn't have said all that

    Nah, Cain is a fighter. I just wish he was smarter about training.

    Tinfoil hat time. Could the union affiliation have anything to do with this?

    I think both Cain and the commission were in a bad spot. Had Cain fought and been permanently injured, while keeping silent, everyone would have been unsympathetic and told him he should have pulled out or revealed how hurt he was before hand. The commission obviously were made aware of his injuries due to the interview and would have been raked over the coals if they allowed the fight and Cain was permanently injured. Allowing the fight to go ahead has too much risks and I think Cain and aka figured this was the best exit route.

    Does anyone really want to see Cain fight for 2 minutes and get seriously hurt in the process.

    Losing to Werdum once can be considered a fluke, losing 0-2 he'd have no excuses. I believe he initially wanted to fight, but eventually realized he'd get cucked again and wanted out, maybe not consciously but subconsciously (which led to reckless training and not taking care of his body).

    Good posting. Hope this doesn't spell the end for Cain.

    He should just retire and get a job as a coach at AKA or something...

    And I was really looking forward to see him get his ass kicked again....

    It's a plot. Cain is retiring and wants Werdum' s spot at Fox latin america. He got beaten up to a pulp standing and choked brutally. Now Cain seeks revenge on Werdum leaving him without a fight and without a commentator job.

    Looks like he really didn't want to pull out of this fight, as he lost his belt to this guy, and he pulled out of so many fights before.
    But he's just so damn injury prone.

    I hope it spells the end for him. But it obviously won't, UFC has invested so much in him already.

    he has a neck surgery planned. last time they fought, Werdum did we all know what to his neck.
    of course he planned it - his neck was literally on the line.
