I agree that the people booing AFTER the fight were idiots.

Booing beforehand isn't that bad but after JDS fought all 5 rounds and gave them their moneys worth... I don't get the booing.

Boo Brunson and Leben.

Vulva Fabulous -  I honestly have no idea how it managed to go 5 rounds.

As impressive of a fight that Cain fought, I am just as impressed that JDS somehow managed to NOT get stopped. Phone Post

Because Cain tired out early on too after all those shots JDS stuffed. Joey just didn't feel the need to point it out. After all JDS had been the champ for over a year yet Cain is still the one getting all the commercials. Was a damn good fight. JDS deserves an immediate rematch against the winner of Cain vs Overeem. I am sure he'll take another fight between now and then rather than just wait like so many other "contenders" have in the past.

Reed Rothchild - JDS made the mistake of leave his hands down... He'll be back as a champion again Phone Post
They were down ALMOST the entire fight....right after that 1st round bomb by Cain is when they never came back up.

Here's my personal opinion of what we just saw. JDS was getting a bit cocky after stuffing multiple takedowns in the 1st round and actually saw Cain show that he was frustrated when he slapped the mat after another JDS escape. While his hands weren't down, I think instead of getting confident, JDS crossed the line and started to get cocky....which is a very fine line to cross. He might have thought that the fight was going to continue like that or he stopped fearing Cain's offensive capabilities and had a brainfart when Cain landed that fucking BOMB of a punch...a punch that would've ended the just about every other HW fighter's night. While it didn't KO JDS, I whole heartedly believe that JDS actually got a concussion. Not the normal, everyday MMA/UFC concussion that we barely notice every event but see on the suspension list, but the type of concussion that you see when an NFL player gets one and is sidelined 6 weeks. While he continued to fight, I think he was just a shell of a man, a walking knockout so to speak. I've personally never seen a fighter seem so out of it confused for an entire fight the way JDS did in this fight. There were moments where JDS seemed not to know what was going on.

Anyway, congrats to Cain on a great performance and reaching the top of the HW mountain again, and congrats to JDS for managing to get knocked out in round 1(in my opinion) but lasting through all 5.

And, I agree with everybody here saying what a bullshit, classless act by the crowd to boo JDS, one of the nicest and classiest people in MMA, especially after showing the kind of heart that he did to survive all 5 rounds when another HW fighter would likely have been finished in rds 1 or 2.

Sorry for the FRAT. Phone Post

He pulled back his signature punch like 10 times.

Like Joe Rogan said "Leben looks like he's walking in quicksand..."

Great fucking fight between two warriors.

If JDS had staged a comeback, I'd say almost as good as Maldonado v Teixiera.

StretchPlum - Incredibly poor fight. If that wasn't a championship fight, people would be throwing bags of dog shit in the ring. JDS is exhausted after 30 seconds, and CV tries to avoid fighting for the last 3.5 rounds.
Dude don't be such a negative whiner. It was a fun fight. Are you butt hurt cause your boy lost or just negative all the time? Phone Post

Can't believe anyone is calling that a fight, that was pathetic. What a terrible HW title fight. Both guys were so gassed after the first round it was almost sad. JDS couldn't throw a punch and Cain had to force himself to stay busy enough to win the rounds.

Won't be watching the third (if there is one).

weird. I said at the time before the big shot in the 1st round that jds looked lethargic. It was the way he stumbled a bit after doing a run away escape from a takedown. Props to Cain though. I really thought that jds was just starting slow until he could find the right range, but cains jab kept him jds off balance and let him close the distance.

Yeah, Cain landed that bomb early in the fight and JDS was never really able to recover from it. I'm really surprised that JDS was able to last to the time limit. JDS may have lost this fight, but he proved that he's as tough as nails.

What I learned from this fight.

Don't underestimate Cain ( I still don't like him)

Dos Santos is tougher than a $ 2.00 steak

That Dos Santos resembles Frankenstein

That it was the worst HW fight I've ever seen- sloppy, stumbling, gassed after the 1st round debacle.

That I am forced to watch an immediate rubber match whether I like it or not.

1. Shocked that Joe/Jon pointed out how gassed JDS was about 100 times but I only heard them once mention Cain's tank. He was clearly gassed as well by the 3rd, NOT pacing himself as Joe kept insisting.

2. I agree Junior may have been concussed or broke his jaw from that punch. He was out of it - and this is the guy that spent 3 rounds hitting Nelson with bombs. Cardio is not a problem with JDS.

3. If Overeem doesn't KO Cain early he's in for a long night.

I totally agree.

You have to give it to Herb Dean though, he did a great job and could've stopped that fight a couple times.
