    The Frank Mir putting on his analyst cap and stating that he feels that cain showed that JDS had no ground game. Pretty sure some JDS fans could counter and say that he was about to counter mir's game. though I felt cain should of subbed him when he had that arm bar.

    Cain was just beating him up with strikes at every opportunity. I don't think anyone would have been able to show decent ground defense against Cain that night.

    Mir is right on target. Cant hate on him for what he saw from a BJJ grappling perspective. Junior looked lost on the ground as was expected.

    I'm a JDS fan, but how do you really dispute that the Cain fight did expose something of Junior's ground game? You can sit there and laugh at Mir, saying he couldn't find that out or saying that JDS showed that Mir has no stand up defense, but it doesn't take away from what the Cain fight showed us.

    Cain will do that to a lot of guys, so I'm not ready to call Junior a fish out of water on the ground. He is supposed to be a black belt in BJJ from the Nogueira brothers, we definitely didn't see a black belt on the ground in that fight. I wouldn't say he has no ground defense, but I will side with Mir on the fact that the Cain fight did show us something about Junior's ground game.

    When you're being pressured to that extent, hit consistently, have already been rocked and your wits aren't with you after being rocked, it's hard to demonstrate much of anything, whether it be a 'ground game' like Mir said, or composure enough to utilize it.

    Like I said, it told us something about his ground game. I will reserve judgement on what exactly that was until the next time Junior is on the ground.
