    Cain has looked more flawless in his fights, but I guess you could say it's easier to do that when you're fighting easiest competition compared to JDS.

    You think he could do what he did with Morris against Big Country? Or Gonzaga?

    I think JDS really took a long tough way to the title
    It almost look like UFC wanna destroy him
    All the new and upcomers JDS has fought them
    But he still passed the test!

    Cain on the other hand looks more protected by the UFC

    Dos Santos had one of the toughest roads to the title I can ever recall.

    I definitely could see Cain beating both nelson and gonzaga, but to answer your question it's a no. Nelson could beat cain if he happens to land a power punch, but cain seems too technical and quick to get caught.

    Glad you used those two as examples. Your point woulda been flawed if you tried to use past prime cro cop, or fat werdum. So props on that.

    I think they wanted to destroy JDS so he wouldnt get to Lesnar IMO. I thought Brock was going to wreck Cain. BOY WAS I WRONG

    JDS had to beat a killers row of Heavyweights to get his title shot and impressed against them all.
    Velasquez got some easy, easy fights to build his name and got some gift TKO's along with it. Calling it against Rothwell while he was standing up is laughable.

    This is the first thread I've seen where they give JDS his full due. He definitely had a harder run at the title than Cain.
