    Than come forward take no prisioners style with a relentless attack that normally steal their opponents souls. This fight reminded me very much of Cotto vs Margarito 1 except Cain didn't get to stop JDS.

    Is Cain the MMA version of Antonio Margarito?

    I think Cain would rather be compared to Erik Morales or Julio Caesar Chavez, rather than a cheater

    Its not about the cheating or not, but the style of fighting, Cain likes to come forward sometimes in straight lines with high activity and endless stamina, very similar to antonio margarito and not Chavez who throws hooks instead of straight punches like Margiarito/Cain and Morales whos more of a boxerpuncher then a reckless assailant

    Most people know Antonio Margarito from the legendary Cotto beatdown in 2008

    What are you talking about, 2008 Margarito was much more like Cain than Chavez. Chavez used hooks and primarily focused on a body attack. Margarito comes forward but uses straight punches and closes the distance in a similar way to velasquez. Watch Cotto Margarito 2008 and compare to this fight

    This, I don't see where you are drawing parallels between Cain and Margarito's styles.

    Cain is fast, Margarito is slow.
    Cain doesn't hit hard, Margarito hits hard.
    Cain has a shit chin, Margarito's chin is made of iron.
    Cain is a wrestler, Margarito is a boxer.
    Cain is a heavyweight, Margarito is a welterweight.
    Cain is American, Margarito is Mexican.


    Yeah...no.

    Cain comes forward with straight punches same as margairto
    cain sometimes jogs a little to close the distance same as margarito
    cain likes to come forward with guard up high like margarito
    cain has ridiculous stamina/workrate like margarito
    cain makes his opponents give up like margarito did with cotto and cintron etc

    No, nothing alike.

    Ps the cottto 1 fight was only legendary in the sense margaritto should be in jail for what pulled that fight.

    They're both effective pressure fighters, I agree.
