I hope Cain wins and can take Lesnar down, before he gets taken down himself.

I would go for a crucifix (otherwise I think gnp wont be enough to finish Brock) or a submission. If not tiring the champ out and dragging the bout into rd 5 can give Cain a chance on the feet as well. Cain is well rounded but I don't know how good his submissions are. I think subs are the way to beat Brock while he is still learning bjj.

I think once Lesnar's on top, even the best grappler in the world will have trouble
-not being controlled and finished, nevermind standing up.

Cain needs to just sprawl and brawl and in general just let the big man tire himself out through whatever means necessary for the first 2 rounds. Then, he can come out guns a blazing in the 3rd and absolutely wreck the big guy's face.

I truly believe Lesnar's wrestling will be exposed in this match. Even though it was basically already exposed by Carwin.

All Cain has to do is not take an asswhoopin in the first round, and every round after that will get easier and easier.

Great fight!

This will be the first time I pick against Lesnar, I think Cain has a much better shot than carwin did. His wrestling is top notch and his stand up is better than Lesnar's. And when Cain fought Kongo, we saw him take some heavy shots and stay in it. So his chin has been tested.

Yep stay on the feet pick Brock apart dosn't have to even throw hard shots just good stiff punches. Brock dosn't like to get hit he will shoot in time and time agian and lose steam with each effort.

Totally agree with you all, the later the better for Cain IMO, wrestling in the first would be a huge mistake because Brock will take a pretty good amount of energy to hold down. Sprawl n Brawl and just land clean shots.....WAR CAIN!!!!

We need to stay on top of it and coordinate. This would be awesome. I'd much rather go to an event with someone who knows the sport of MMA. My roommate's fun and all but she asks toomany question during sports.
