    Give JDS someone coming off a KO loss and then he's ready for another shot.

    War JDS.

    I think he should win one fight and get a shot at who ever holds the title after that.

    He'll get a rematch eventually. Just keep tearing through everyone, and you'll be back at the top, JDS.

    Seems like he fought the same way he fought in all of his other fights including the first fight he won against Cain.

    I'm sure he'll attempt to be a more diversified fighter in the future and show off his bjj blackbelt....or he'll just continue to be a two dimensional "boxer" with good takedown defense. Funny how JDS is considered the new breed with his style of fighting but Rampage is considered someone that didn't "evolve" when they both do nothing but "box" and try to defend takedowns.

    Done already, but ok. JDS you're one of my favorites and everything, but nothing about that fight warrants an instant rematch. Cain is a classy dude and deserves to be champ for a while. He even had to fight Bigfoot first.

    I hope they give JDS at least one top contender before marketing the 3rd fight. It will almost definitely happen though. Cormier is the only question mark, and possibly Overeem if he stays clean enough to fight.

    Apparently all he needs to do to get a shot at the title is beat Bigfoot (see Cain and AO, if he wins). Bigfoot = title shot gatekeeper.

    I like JDS. Guy is a true sport, has a great personality, and is an ambassador to the sport. I hope he gets another shot at the title, but the fight was not really close enough to grant an immediate rematch. I would like to see, as is custom for many UFC champions after they lose, to string together a two-fight win streak before challenging for the title again. I think that is very fair.

    I don't think this fight is as complicated as either fighter is making it out to be. I thought his gameplan was fine and to be honest in the early going of the first round it was working.

    Whenever these two fighters get together it's all about who connects that one big shot first. And this time it was Cain. Happened in the first round with a minute 30 to go, and he never fully recovered.

    That's the risk you take when you put two very hard punching, accurate strikers in the octagon.

    So my advice to JDS would be..."connect first".

    He lost because he faced a better more well-rounded fighter. His best chance of winning the fight were standing not by getting a sub from off his back vs Cain. So he did the right thing by standing up once he was taken down, by standing back up he gives himself the chance to use his best assets which is his punches, which is what got him 9 consecutive wins in the UFC in the first place.

    All you have to do to get a title shot is be the person that the UFC thinks will draw the most PPV buys in their next PPV.


    See Sonnen, Diaz.

    As stated above, he will get a shot at the title. I would like to see him fight Reem, assuming he takes care of Bigfoot. The problem is if he changes strategy, Cain will take him down!

    Even though JDS wont evolve as much as Cain did for the rematch, I`m betting JDS will keep his freaking guard a little higher agianst Cain just for in case.

    Bad gameplan/strategy or whatever, JDS didn't look like JDS in that fight...IMO.

    Is it just me or did JDS look HUGE in that fight. Maybe I'm wrong but he seemed so much bigger and far more muscular than normal. Something about the way he was fighting just seemed slow and he didnt seem light on his feet like if affected his agility.

    I dont know...I'm not making excuses for the guy but something wasn't right about how he was moving.

    You couldn't make the stuff some people post of this board up.

    He said he was feeling good.

    I trust JDS more than you. Who are you?

    i agree.

    this is just posturing on dos santos's part. i think that he's in a similar situation that anderson was in after the first sonnen fight. yes, anderson won that fight. but his lack of wrestling and take-down defense was exposed.

    he worked diligently to correct that hole in his game, and he did better at stopping sonnen's shot. it wasn't perfect, but it was enough to secure him another win.

    i think that dos santos should work on that area for sure.

    Cain had to win one fight before the rematch. I'd expect JDS to do the same.
