    Showing some highlights of training isn't often a good measurement of reality.

    looks like a good session but who's the dude who's face flashes up at 06 to 07 second mark?

    Sparring is much different than a real fight.

    it must be so incredibly disheartening to be a training partner of velasquez.

    Brawlers, shot callers, no boxers.

    After seeing this, now I blame a fighter for getting injured out of a fight.

    It has been edited to show only Cain's attacks for some reason. I love Cain but this video means jack shit.

    Looks like Cain's highlights. Remember Glover vs Machida?

    Especially if you are in Cormier's position. You are a former Olympian, the wrestling coach of the UFC HW champ and also his training partner. You also just happen to be in the same division as him and could possibly fight him. Talk about weird scenarios.

    Honestly, it is not enough footage to make a judgement. It is not like Velasquez was going crazy on Cormier, tagging him all the time, those were just some highlights.

    Those guys are getting some good work in....I would favor Cain in a real fight, But Cormier is a beast and would have a little better than a punchers chance.....JDS has that Russian Olympic wrestler in his camp, Should help his tdd
