OK, he split from them as his management, but does this mean he will be training elsewhere too? I've got questions that need answering dammit!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if this was a condition of him joining the UFC. Either way, I'm just happy hrs gonna test himself in the shark tank that is the UFC.Great time for us to be mma fans

I'd love to see him move to ATT.

I could see him heading to ATT, that makes sense to me.

I think he should go train with Randy at XTREME COUTURE. He gonna be fighting some damn good wrestlers in the ufc and there's no better game planner then Couture imo.

ATT would be the smartest move he ever made

I wouldn't mind seeing him at AKA either. Trainers like Javier Mendez and Andy Wong could be beneficial to his kickboxing.

Although that is the one area where he's clearly the strongest fastko. Wrestling/JJ should be his biggest concern IMO.

I agree, that's why XTREME Couture seems right. I was gonna say AKA but Cain trains there. I can see those 2 meeting down the road and if they train together it could cause problems all around

I think he would be getting fine wrestling/bjj instruction from Camarillo and Cormier, and would have some beastly training partners to work on it with Cormier and Velasquez. But the problem then would be that he would be inclined not to fight those guys.

And by ATT I mean AKA. I get them mixed up a lot. I was thinking of Cormier to help improve his wrestling.
