Default What sort of chance do you give Bigfoot in his fight with Velasquez?

Bigfoot looked awful last time out against Cormier, but Cormier's boxing was excellent. I'm not sure Cain has the same skills with his hands, despite his decent kickboxing. Cain likes to swarm guys using his grappling, and dominate them on the floor. Is he going to be able to do that against someone as big and as heavy as Bigfoot, and does he risk getting submitted if he does choose those tactics?

I think this could be a very interesting fight indeed.

Bigfoot is a VERY live underdog in this. His grappling is enhanced by his size and his striking and chin are underrated. I'm going out on a limb and saying he wins this..

I don't think you can say Bigfoot's chin is underrated when he got punched into oblivion by a guy about 50lbs lighter than him in his most recent fight, and got badly hurt by Mike Kyle as well.

However, I do agree that his grappling and size make this a very interesting fight indeed. Cain has the striking to beat Bigfoot, but I don't think he has the striking to blow him out like Cormier did. And when this fight goes to the floor, that's where it gets fascinating. Bigfoot is reported to be around 280lbs in the cage, and has good BJJ. A 240-243lbs Cain (I expect him to be back to his best fighting shape in his next outing) may find Silva too much to deal with on the ground.
