    If Ali/Frazier 3 is the "Thrilla in Manila", what should we call Velasquez/Dos Santos 3?

    Why would you compare Ali or Frazier to Cain or JDS? That is beyond stupid due to the fact that the Ali/Frazier fights were mythical and the combatants involved, legendary.

    I'm really excited for the fight tonight, but the Ali/Frazier trilogy was so much bigger than JDS/Cain could ever be, too much for a comparison.

    Just think of it as them creating their own legacy as the two best heavy weight mma fighters of their time.
