JDS showed little improvements sense the 2nd fight. I think he has the strength and ability to compete vs cain. Shit he still is the only one to beat him.


It just looked like he came in with a shitty game plan. Maybe the same as the 2nd just with elbows off the cage.


I think JDS needs a new camp to beat cain and Jackson/winklejon might be the answer.

It wouldn't hurt, he would be tested against top fighters daily, and his cardio would improve. It seems to me JDS has great cardio when he dictates the pace, but if someone get's against the cage and beats on him, it zap's his energy. That and the fact Cain never let's your breathe and continues to move.

At this point the only thing that I think would help JDS against Cain is another big right hand like he landed in the first fight.

Otherwise, Cain wins. He's the better fighter.

But like frizzz said, it wouldn't hurt.

I wasn't impressed at all with the advice JDS was getting from his corner inbetween rounds .

If they fought 100 times Cain would win 95 in my honest opinion.

JDS needs a KO before the end of the first or he doesnt win.

I think a change of camp would help. Cain right now definitely seems more well rounded. Don't know if it was a bad gameplan or just Cain imposing himself but he should have got away from the fence when there were chances to do so.

I think Cain is better all around. It doesn't matter what JDS does.

JDS is SOOO ONE DIMENSIONAL


Cain has him figured out. Take away space for him to throw that right and he is pretty much done for.


Very similar to how HWs figured out to stay away from CroCops legs. After they figured that out he started losing like crazy

I don't think Greg Jackson could do much to help Junior. Junior's biggest weakness is not wrestling; it is conditioning.

Cain had a hard time getting Junior to the mat and that is testament of Junior's much improved wrestling. The deciding factor in this fight as it was in the last fight was conditioning. Junior cannot possibly condition his body to meet or surpass someone who has been doing it almost all his life.

Rogan brought it up multiple times last night about Cain having a measured approach. Even if Junior was to developed a measured approach, he still won't be able to handle the mauling from Cain. The mauling is what drained the life out of Junior.

Off topic here: I personally think Junior was out on his feet for at least 5 minutes of the entire fight. He literally had nothing left when Herb Dean saved him. Another fight like this and Junior is going to suffer serious brain damage if he hasn't already. I don't know the science behind brain damage but I would assume one is more susceptible to it while suffering from exhaustion.

Idk if JDS needs a new camp.. I mean he's only lost two fights in his life to the same guy. He destroys everyone else. I do think it would be of benefit to him to change his gameplan though, because Junior didn't seem to fight with a good one. Instead of circling he kept letting Cain just back him into the cage

It looked to me like he focused on not going to the ground, not getting off the cage. Problem is the best two hw clinch fighters train together.
