    The pressure was relentless, Cain won, I tip my hat to him.

    Still a JDS fan, this is a tough night for me as a fan, but I'll still support him no matter what.

    Does everyone have to make a congrats thread to place attention on themselves?

    The heavyweights were never known for their cardio.

    I was pulling for Dos Santos, since wrestling is awful to watch, but congrats to Cain. I overestimated Junior's TDD. Wrasslin is everything in this sport!

    Part 3 coming soon to a theater near you. :icon_lol: Cain wanted it BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD. :icon_arro I can't wait to watch Cain vs JBJ vs Overeem vs DC superfight. The HW division just got a lot interesting. JDS is still a top fighter but wrestling is the key to future champions if you can't counter or outmuscle you will be punching bag material.

    Wanted JDS to win, but picked Cain anyways. So pissed that I was right. But hey, we will get one hell of a trilogy down the line.

    Great fight Cain owned but JDS showed some serious heart. I'm happy for the first time in a while about my purchase of this PPV.

    I disagree. Cain did a good job neutralizing the stand up of Dos Santos by making fight off takedowns all night. Then he punished him with big right hands all night. Dos Santos showed a lot of heart, but was clearly hurt.

    It's unbecoming to say these warriors looked like shit.

    Junior's TDD was actually pretty good, even as a zombie. He was just completely outstriked.

    I don't know if I'd call it a joke. But both fighters have put on better performances. Not really impressed with Cain at all, for example. I'd rank his performance against Kongo higher than tonight. At least Cain displayed good pressure, takedowns and wrestling in that fight, plus Kongo had the cardio to fight back effectively. Cain is a great fighter, but he has looked much greater than tonight.

    You said what I was thinking TS.

    Good job to Cain. Haven't been this disappointed with a fight since Machida/Jones.

    True. It was very good early on but he couldn't keep up that pace and wore down...

    I didn't see much pressure at all after the first 1 1/2 rounds.
