    People talk about how Prime Overeem was the scariest heavyweight ever and he truly was at one point but then there was Cain, who looked far from a destroyer and yet he ran through people viciously. I mean, we talk about how brutal Khabib is but Cain was brutalizing people on the ground way before that, his run before all the injuries started piling up was far more brutal than what Khabib did, and that is saying something.
    It truly is a fucking pity that the injuries robbed us of a almost certain GOAT career, when he destroyed Brock people were hailing him as the next Fedor and I can this with certainty, NO heavyweight ever was going to beat Cain that night, not even Overeem.
    At his peak, Cain was the most skilled heavyweight ever.
    Pity that his body is so broken down that he can't even perform in the WWE, first match ended in a minute because his knee was banged up. Regardless, Cain was a destroyer and his fights were amazing to watch. He was not a huge star but he really gave us some amazing moments, from destroying Brock, to painting the octagon with Silva's blood and especially that staredown at ufc 166 (which was one of the greatest events ever imo) when he met Junior in the middle during his taunt, legitimately one of the most hype moments in history.

    Love me some Cain and youre right that Staredown at the middle of the octagon when JDS throws the gauntlet and Cain meets him in the middle and nods his head like "yes, bring it chump" was awesome. Cain is one of all time favorite fighters along with Fedor and Machida.

    Too bad he couldn't keep it together to have anything more than an anemic fight schedule.

    He was a force of nature. Such a bummer that injuries totally derailed his career.

    Brock's lack of volume in strikes is so telling in that gif

    Cain threw a fast combo of 7 or 8 strikes and Brock threw 2 weak uppercuts

    Most overrated fighter in UFC history. Good fighter, slightly above average resume in terms of UFC Champs . Not a top all time HW by any means.

    His ko of Big Nog is my favourite and dude did brutalize the competition. He beat the fuck out of bigfoot and jds twice each. He was a monster in prime and a treat to watch.

    Between 2011 and 2014 he only faced two opponents... That's why it's so hard to know if he was bound for a GOAT career or not.

    Had it been 4-5 different names during this period when injuries became a problem for him, well, then all of us would agree.

    Cain was probably the only HW champ who could beat pretty much any opponent using either striking, clinch or ground game. Also, his cardio was unreal - he was spanning takedowns for 2 rounds in the JDS 2 fight and was still pushing the pace afterwards.

    If only he had a weight training coach that would prevent him from going 120% strength, 50% technique in the gym.

    He is or was at the time. He was pushed as the greatest hw ever with 8 fights. Which was always silly as there were many hw with better resumes and accomplishments at the time and now. . Fought jds and Bigfoot for half of his career.

    Dude, his stats for the first JDS fight was insane. Threw over 300 strikes and attempt fucking 33 takedown, landing 11 of them. For a heavyweight, that is fucking ungodly.
