Two violent operators who were both injured in their first fight and it only went a minute. Its a 50-50 fight where anything could happen.

You could say that JDS has the advantage of a ko win but I think the Big Foot fight showed he is still a terminator and doesn't give a ****.

From what he says he seems to really rate JDS td defence and talks about needing to set up the take down with combos etc Though I agree, I also disagree as JDS has dangerous power and sometimes you just need to have no respect for someones ability ala Sonnen Silva. Otherwise that degree of respect he gives JDS is exactly what he wants, time and range to operate.

Santos is clearly the better fighter. I expect a quick win again

I think theres just something about the whole mental make up of Dos Santos, that makes me think he's going to be the top man in the division for the foreseable future, kind of similiar to GSP in the welterweight division and Anderson Silva at Middleweight!

Anderson Silva isn't exactly oozing confidence with that round, baby faced head, but the way he moves in the cage is romantic. Beautiful, the way The Spider executes, as is the way GSP harmonizing all facets of the Sport

JDS asks you to meet him in the center of the cage, and comes out with his hands up, and feet spread apart. Classico, we've seen the type for years. Boxing thrives, just in another art form.

I seem to recall JDS admitting to being very nervous going into the first fight with Cain, because of his injury. Didn't he even state that if he had been taken down, he would have been in serious trouble? Obviously he can perform under pressure, if he was as nervous as he said he was.

I think both guys guys will be entering the cage with more confidence this time around, seeing as they are both healthy, as far as we know.

It's a 50-50 fight... Laying 2-1 on JDS is nuts. What line did you get? It's -200 on my online sports book... And I heard it was -230 in Vegas! You laid 800$ for 460$.. That's about -175?? Still too high IMO... Im betting small on Cain for the value.. Maybe 150$! At +160 it's a steal... Just my 2 cents.

If he won it would have been all glory. For him anyway, I couldn't care less.

Betting on fights is very risky business though. I learnt that a long time ago. UFC way more risky than boxing. Heavyweights MMA more than any other division.

I think this is more a 60 40 for Cain.

Cain is cagey with inside fighting and going for takedowns off of landed punches. He's already very good at putting a fist in a guys face and using that to help set up a takedown.

Cain has to move forward and force JDS to throw something with conviction, he has to let JDS throw his knockout punch, and he needs to use that moment to get him to the ground..

You guys don't see his weakness.
Great post & prediction.I had it closer more like 55-45 but leaned slightly more as the fight drew closer I love betting on under dogs especially when it's my fav fighters cause I usually study both & see things other don't.Won't make a stupid bet that's isn't worth it with a lot of money on the line.Marquez-pac 4 won me tons($$) You don't bet it all on a slight favorite & vs a huge Threat like Cain.People were so confident after JDS KO'd a injured Cain now they see him healthy they're stunned,Scary good.
