Josh is teak-tough, I can see him walking through fire to get a hold of Bones, and then using his extra weight, strength, and grappling experience to dominate Jon on the floor.
The problem is with the weak wrestling, he'd have to drag him to the ground, and to do that, he would have to clinch, and that isn't a good idea unless your Overeem.
A healthy non-ring rusted Cain would be really quick and very strong, along with hitting like a mac truck.
Cain is a better mma wrestler than the other wrestlers Jones has fought.
He'd get taken down, then the hammer fists would reign down at a rapid rate.
Cain isn't going to get a sub the way that Barnett, Bigfoot or Mir could, so I think eventually Bones would escape from the ground, and break him down in the stand-up.
How many guys have excaped out from underneath Cain and his hammerfists from hell?
A scared and beaten Brock?
There was a reason he was scared.
