People overrate how good Werdum looked and underrate how bad Cain looked.
First off all, Werdum
TS, you could've just said all this in your other thread; If you have high hopes for Werdum, you´re gonna be disappointed
Cain fans excuses for his loss are overrated.
Cain won 3 minutes of the first, then got battered like a bobblehead until he quit and gave Verdoom the guilly.
I dont agree. He figured out how to stop cain from putting him on the fence. No one before him has done so.
It should also be noted that Cain has always had sub par striking, especially his defense.
Ouch. Poor Cain. Your time is over
as good as your last fight in this business, everyone knows that - he just won so hes amazing, cain lost and there is no further discussion warranted by the mob
Cain fans act like Werdum wasn't fighting under the same circumstances as Cain
The sea level shit is the thing that is not valid.
That's like saying Erick Silva only lost to Fitch because he didn't train enough TDD. If you decide not to train for something that is going to be a factor in the fight and it causes you to lose then there should be no complaining about it.
Aww man. High altitude cain is back.
Pretty much this.
Just like JDS has this hole in his game that if you put him on the fence you take away most of his weapons, if you can make Cain strike in distance he's much less effective which is what Werdum was able to do.
Not to say the rematch is going the same way. Cain may adjust and beat Werdum, we never know.
It's what happened against JDS, he legitimately lost the first one striking at distance with him, then the second time around he didn't go the same way about it and wrecked JDS. The third was JDS trying to fight Cain again without any adjustment, and it went the same way as the second, not surprisingly.
Werdum overwhelmed and subbed one of the best HWs in MMA history. it wasn't overrated. It was sweet.
Learn to enjoy things like that rather than undermining them and you will enjoy MMA more. Hell, learn to apply the principle of appreciating good things and you will enjoy life more.
Can't take anything away from Werdum He deserved that win. It's Cain's own damn fault that he didn't take the proper time to acclimatize to the altitude.
That being said, I think Cain will beat him in the rematch.
Tuned in for "Sea level Cain", left happy
Beat Cain in the feet, clinch and on the ground.
Outstruck him, had a better work rate and better stamina.
It was a performance we could expect from a prime Jones, GSP, Silva or Fedor (not saying he is among the goats, just talking about this performance).
What else do you want, TS?
Werdum gave Cain the business. Get over it.
one thing i notices is werdums defense was not so good,neither is cains,so they lumped each other up in the pocket. so both guys can be got at there. In a rematch who knows? but Werdum absolutley deserves all the accolades,as strategically he took cains gameplan away from him
I disagree with the TS.
Werdum won the standup/clinch game which was shocking. I had expected his only chance was a flukey submission and instead he battered Cain to exhaustion.
Cains whole career is overrated......
Cain lost because he is not consistently capable of defending or improving himself, while Werdum is.
When you're thinking about who most deserves the title of "baddest man on the planet" a man who spends half his time as an invalid should not be up for consideration.
Cain will probably maul him in the rematch anyway
Very true. He always leaves himself open. The way he was just walking forward and letting werdum touch him with the jab was ridiculous.
Cain is overrated
If you could drastically improve your cardio so much so that it propels you beyond the division's elite in that department, by having one training camp in Mexico, everyone would do it.
Most sources I can find on acclimating to altitude list the time needed as days or even weeks. Cain had 2 weeks.
Let it go.
You don't need to make a thread about it, just wait for the rematch, I am sure it's going to be a lot different.
No way.It's one best of all time and the best one this year.
He dominated Cain from the first round landing the much heavier shots.
Then in the second round he stepped it up even more and smashed him to bits.
He schooled him and gave him the beating of a career.That round is the one which squashed the myth of Cain making him look like a little boy.
In the third round Cain could hardly stand up and then is masterfully put in a guillotine when he shot for a desperate takedown and is submitted.
Werdum schooled Cain and exposed him badly for the overrated fighter he is in a fight nobody expected to be so one sided.
Nobody is saying that he didn
So cain wasnt prepared for the altitude?
He wasnt prepared
what a dumbass ? he knew the fight was gonna happen at high altitude if he didnt prepare for that then WTF what a dumbass...
Yeah not only did he destroy in the standup from one of the most feared fighters and one of the greatest heavy weights of all time while being a huge under dog, he also submitted him. yeah not impressive at all.
Werdum is going to crush Cain in the rematch. The mods should ban your IP Address from making a new account so that you can eat your crow like a man.
Not this fucking idiot again.
You lost Cain, get over it. You're gonna lose the rematch as well.
Never seen a ts so badly besmirched.
What a fool, stop him making these shit threads.
No. Shut up ts. You know nothing about muay thai.
What a ridiculous thread. It was one of the worst beatdowns I've seen in years.
cain is overrated
Maybe the proper title should be, "Baddest Man on the Planet on Crutches" or something like that?
