Watching Werdum dominate Browne like that was very interesting. Cain's strength is his ground and pound, and Werdum strength is his Top level BJJ(the best in the heavyweight division, probably the sport). Can Cain pass Werdum's guard, and not get lured into a submission when he does? Cain is very aggressive fighter, Werdum loves to draw opponents in with feints, He will fall down when getting hit to allow his opponents to jump in his guard, and that almost always end up bad for his opponents. I think Werdum has the best chance of beating Cain.

Browne gassed in round 1. That was a horrible performance. This kind of states how bad of shape the heavyweight division is really in.

No offense meant but Browne is the world's most dangerous heavy bag.

Damnnn I can't believe that wasn't FOTN. I missed the Alves vs. Baczynski fight but I basically have Werdum vs. Browne as FOTY (even though one sided).
