They are very different fighters but with similar styles and backgrounds. No, this is not a Cain vs DC thread, this is about DC's comment saying that he was going to try and mimic Cain's style at 205 since he can't do it at HW. But I hear people say "If Jon Jones beats DC then we get an idea how he will do against Cain". That's far from the truth. After watching DC vs Hendo I can definitely see that Cain is WAAYYYY more aggressive than his coach. That's a simple fact. Cain will always be Jones kryptonite. However you can bet your ass that DC will pressure and smother Jon Jones as well. It's all about dat wrasslin' son. But I don't see how people can say Cain is boring like DC. Watching Cain is like watching an action movie. What I do find entertaining about DC tho is his slams! But... that's pretty much IT. He doesn't punch nearly as much, switch up and mix things up as much, or finish as brutal, doesn't KEEP MOVING FORWARD like Cain does, etc.. His kicks are slower and more predictable than Cain and he doesn't receive kicks that well himself. Cain will take his opponents down and beat them up the moment they try to throw a body kick at him. Like I said the slams DC does are the best part of him... but what else? First off, when you see DC fighting Hendo he starts off by putting Hendo on his ass and then lays on him for a while... Cain would NEVER do that. If it was Cain, he would lock horns with Hendo and beat him up non stop and only use his wrestling if it's appropriate. DC would need to keep punching the shit out of his opponents till they bleed all over if he wants to mimic Cain's style. He's just too reserved and slow in action to do that, even at LHW. However DC is incredibly mobile now. DC was laying on Hendo, punching, rolling around on him, punching, then another long instant of smothering... I was so frustrated because DC said he was going to try and mimic Cain's style at 205 since Cain is only man on earth who can do that at HW. But I must say he didn't mimic anything of Cain like he said he would. DC said that, which is why I made this thread to compare his style to Cain. DC was also looking tired towards round 3, but good thing he didn't slow down. PS. DC is a HW amongst smaller guys, 205 is going to be a cake walk. In my opinion. It's almost unfair lol And DC and Cain only look impressive because there's nobody else like them in the UFC. There's a Cain and DC #2 out there somewhere, but they look impressive now because nobody is on their level. But if you have a division full of guys of their caliber, they may look more human.
