LAME. Cain was KO'd in 2 minutes. Rematch should have never happened.

Agreed, but with the injury curse that may creep into 2013, anything can happen. Phone Post

1 minute actually. You saying that the rematch, which was not immediate, after tonight's result is one of the dumbest things I've read all year. Phone Post

Well, I agree I GUESS. That said, he hung in there and fought HARD for 5 rds after being basically decapitated in the 1st. He defended all takedowns up till then. He gassed as a result. The fight might've been different, so a rematch isn't a guaranteed replay.
But he should'nt have to fight more than once. Cain lost HARD in 1 minute and only fought once not against a top 5 guy and got a rematch. I say give JDS like a Struve and then rematch. That'd be the same.
If not, you REALLY gotta think they did want Cain as champ and don't want the rematch for other reasons.

No immediate rematch, but there will still be a rubber match.


Fair enough, I thought of that after I posted.

Huh?! Are you retarded, son? Cain just smoked the champ after he got caught by a punch when he had a torn ACL. Phone Post

Oh that's bullshit, the first fight was one sided in favor of JDS and Cain got a rematch.


There needs to be a rubber match between these two at some point down the road.

Well of course there would be no immediate rematch - who would even suggest that? It would be absurd.

The problem for the UFC comes though if Bigfoot beats Overeem - which is definitely possible, though Overeem is deservedly the favorite.

I don't know what they'd do with Cain if Bigfoot won. Would he just get sidelined forever, hoping that Werdum beats Nog? Or would they maybe cancel the Werdum-Nog fight and just put Werdum into the title fight?

I think maybe they should consider scrapping Overeem-Bigfoot all together, because if Bigfoot wins it totally screws everything up.

Cain had to fight his way back. Let JDS have a fight or two earn a shot. Right call. Phone Post

wasn't JDS injuried going into the first fight?

If injured knees = doing backflips during media workouts and backarches post fight then yea.. he was "injured." Love JDS but let's be real. Phone Post

While I mostly agree with you, there is a difference between a quick knockout and a 5 round beating.


this.

Given the domination I think Junior needs at least one fight before a rubber match. Phone Post

Getting caught & getting beat for 5 rounds is completely different. Maybe thats why Dana gave him the second fight. Phone Post

Well he's right, Cain only got this because Overeem tested positive.

Saying that someone who got KOed in 64 seconds then wins only one single fight (a win against someone coming off a brutal 1st round KO loss no less) has somehow "earned" a title shot, is just false. Cain got lucky Overeem screwed up, and that the HW division has no depth.

As for saying the rematch was deserved because of tonight's result, that's silly. Matchmakers aren't psychic.
