They pulled him out of his last fight with Werdum because he said that his back was fucked and it was gonna need surgery after the fight

Sadly that type of a fight wont happen... It would just be a fan fight, which obv never happen. Like why would they fight? Cain doesnt have a title and is a HW, JJ is LW and doesnt want to go to HW


CamilaPunt   Brasil. Feb 16 2019 19:16. Posts 2354

Spitfiree how are you coming to such conclusions?

cain was a champ and very close to getting a shot after a win here (although belt will probably be vacated by dc as they wont fight each other).. JJ has expressed interest in hw as well since he basically has cleared lw out. Cain is the only fighter who has looked god like in his non injured fights he took. He lost to cigano on the 1st fox fight totally banged up and then went on to man handle cigano and basically ruin ciganos career in two slaughters and gassed badly in the mexico fight where he did not take altitude issue seriously...aside from that he has been invincible. Its makes super sense if he is healthy and can hold on to that for 2-3 fights.

Big win for Aljamain Sterling.

His win puts me back into a top spot in the GambleMaster event.

If you guys didn't know, Cain's knee buckled 1-2 days ago in a video.

It was the cause of him losing this fight, which sucks.

Francis deserves credit for the win. There's a replay showing his short uppercut starting Cain's momentary limp fall to the ground and only then is when awkward force made the knee give. Knee was definitely a factor since Cain's face upon landing was a grimace from someone injured, not someone who had their bell completely rung but you can't take anything away from Francis

Just how good was Cain really? Think this deserves to be asked given that his injuries have actually kind of made him into a near mythical prime figure. Heavyweight is not filled with natural talent and the obvious variance makes it difficult to truly judge greatness which leads to stuff like the UFC having to repeatedly hammer home Stipe as the most accomplished heavy ever based on his three (3!!!!) defenses. Looking at Cain, his prime/title reign consisted of him smashing JDS, who's one deficiency is Cain's strength, and two fights with Bigfoot Silva. Silva had his strengths (his strength) but he may as well have been made in a lab for someone like Cain to look good against. Way too slow. Then if you look at his losses, there's always been a good narrative of excuses. Even if he was compromised, facts are he competed...and was caught by JDS and now Francis. And the sea level Cain thing for Werdum was just all around bullshit. I think Werdum would've always been a poor matchup for Cain, it's not like Cain was wiping the floor with Werdum even in round 1, and in the end, it's all your responsibility anyways. I remember that embedded. One guy, Werdum, took things seriously and trained in Mexico City's elevation for several weeks. The other finished up in SoCal only to go up 7k in elevation for a fight 3-4 days beforehand. Reap what you sow. So yeah the JDS maulings were super impressive but it's just one guy? What's his actual best win if you take JDS out of it? Brock?

I enjoyed Cain while he was around (just going to assume this is it). His win vs Brock was one of the more memorable events kind of ever. Super dominant in the brief time we were able to see him but if you hypothetically cut other fighters' careers at some arbitrary halfway point before they got to prove their longevity and adaptability vs all styles, we could've had some similar what if's. I don't think Cain stands alone in that even if he was a bit unique to the heavyweight division
