After watching Primetime, I was really inspired by both fighters, so if either man walks away with the title, I'll be pleased, IF they put on a good fight, which should almost be a guarantee.

We can all blame Fleek for jinxing this card if it gets ruined.

I'm not really sure who to pull for. This is a fight that I'm super excited for, but indifferent for the most part. I think that eventually my hatred for some of the AKA guys will tip me in Dos Santos's corner.

I'm just rooting for an exciting affair.

I'll be rooting for Junior since he's honestly the only Heavyweight I have a strong liking for. I was stunned after he knocked out Werdum, and how modest he was after such a high profile win. Liked him ever since. Watching him on TUF just gave me more reasons to like him. Such a nice and respectful guy, even though he's huge and could squash most people.

This fight will go to the ground.

They are both so lethal standing up, the one who wins will be the one who can take the other guy down, control him on the ground and beat him up.

Surely the better grappler is Velasquez.

I want JDS to win, because he's ace,

But my money is on Velasquez.

I think the size difference is going to mitagate Cain's ability to take the fight to the ground.

Junior has the faster, stronger hands. Cain is more agile and pushes a pace that could break any HW.

But Junior has all the variables in his favor for him to be able to pull off a KO early.

I hope you're right! I really want JDS to win, I think he really deserves it. Not taking anything away from Cain though.
