Cain, defenately. Cain is probably the most highly touted of the HW new comers in the UFC. he is better in every area than Jake, Cain is a better wrestler, and unlike Jake he has great ground and pound and subs. I'd also give him the advantage on the feet.

Velasquez is a beast. He should dominate O'Brien.

I'm picking O'Brien. 8 T/KOs to Cain's 3. Experience.

I think a lot of guys are giving Cain too much credit. His striking is powerful but sloppy. A good technical striker could eat him up and there are quite a few of those at the top of the HW division. His wrestling is rumored to be good but im still yet to see it.

If his wrestling is as good as its suppossed to be than i dont think O'brien can win by controling him for 3 rounds and therefore i dont personally think O'brien is going to win but i could see where people are coming from.

I still think Cain is a good prospect who seems to have a bright future ahead of him. Even if he loses here, it should only be a small bump in the road. At the very least it's a good early test for him.

Cain is very talented and an up-and-comer. But, I might have to give the edge to Jake in this one. He's got more experience and is a true heavyweight. Cain could easily make LHW just like Vera. I could see Jake getting Cain down and pounding out a decision. Jake also has very underated striking.

Cain is sure to be a challenge for Jake, I understand... but Jake really has been training his azz off because this fight is so very important to him.

I am pulling for Jake.

he is 6'2 245lbs, could easily move down to LHW

jake is 6'3 240lbs, one inch isnt significant enough to be a factor in a fight.
