    JDS finishing cain in the 1st round or cains completely dominant

    The rematch, the first fight happened so quickly, you couldn't really tell anything from it.

    Both are very impressive. Without them fighting 100 times there is no way to tell which is more impressive, which is a fluke, which fighter is more likely to win, etc... just too small a data sample.

    Even.

    When Cain-JDS III rolls around...it'll be the same thing. If JDS can land a clean shot, he'll win. If Cain can avoid the stand-up and grind it out, he'll win.

    Considering the way each of them won is the way they normally win, both.

    Agreed. Anything can happen in a fight. You have to erase the memories of previous fights, in some sense, as it is a brand new fight and fighters have improved since their previous meetings.

    The rematch and the way Cain dominated JDS kinda makes the first fight look like a fluke.

    both guys won when they could fight their game. JDS was standing with Cain in the first fight and in the second fight Cain had Junior where he wanted him, on the ground.

    And if you reverse the fight order, Cain wins a dominant decision, then in the rematch JDS obliterates him, it could make the first fight look flukey.

    Cain in rematch.
    I knew JDS had good setups and big power.
    Didn't know Cain had all that.... Everything, really.

    How? JDS beat Cain the way most people thought he would and by using his best weapon, his striking. Just like Cain beat JDS using his best tools in the rematch.
