    Cain gets hit quite a bit by guys with much more power than Jones (JDS tagged him many times on the way in). Cain is not afraid to take shots in order to close the distance, he would eat whatever Jones threw at him, land some punches of his own on the way in, then wear him down with body shots, head shots and TD attempts until he gets the finish. DC was able to pressure Jones pretty effectively for a good bit of the fight.

    I'll think about Cain the same I though about DC. Too hard to call.

    DC is a vastly better pure wrestler than both of them. BUT this is MMA.

    Jones took him down because he was gassed and getting beat up, just like Cain would do the same to DC, and I believe would do the same to Jones.

    I see a bulked up Jones without cutting weight having as good cardio as Cain.
    Jones will comfortably beat Cain.

    Thought the exact same thing. Though the haters will just say no, not that they believe Jones doesn't stand a chance anymore.

    Cain is a different animal.

    The guy don't get tired and has better striking then Cormier. He has better head movement and is more quickly( or was. I don't know now after surgerys). Cain is also taller and bigger.

    Cain is a whole nother animal; than DC. He also would not gas and would be even more aggressive

    What, the pace he put against a much larger and stronger jds is a lot more difficult than it would be against Bones.

    Cain would beat Jones and JDS would completely wreck him.

    Until he stops evolving and loses, I can't see anyone beating bones. Sorry

    I'm probably one of the few who think DC>Cain.
    So yes, I think JBJ>Cain.

    No....if anything this fight shows that Cain would be too much for Jones. Although JOnes won 4 rounds, he was getting hit on the inside and the outside. It shows that a guy that wants to get inside and clinch, could do so. Cain is bigger, faster and has overall better offense striking + more power. He's overall more fluid in how he moves and applies everything. And....Cain has much better cardio and pressure.

    Cain by Dec 50-45 or late TKO. I would give Jones a better shot vs JDS....rest of HW, I think Jones beats.
