UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture thinks UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is the dominant figure in the division, but says he has to be careful with the giant Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva.

"I feel like Cain is the guy to beat," Couture told MMAjunkie.com. "Even in his loss to Junior the first time, I was very surprised it went that way, and expected it to go a lot more like their second fight."

However, Couture concedes that Silva could take the title if his bigfist lands on Cain's jaw.

"You can't afford to play around with guys that size," Couture said. "Trust me. I know."

"(Silva) has to come out, close the distance and get on Cain, especially if he can knock him down or take him down and get on top of him. Establish a good top game, which if Cain wants to get up, he's probably going to be able to do that, which would force Silva to do it again. He's going to have be able to do it over and over in each and every round."

"I just think that athletically, Cain is just too much for him. (Silva) is dangerous. He's big, he's strong, and he can hit hard, and if Cain gets caught up in that kind of fight and wants to trade with him, it could be a surprise. But I think Cain is smart. I think he's going to have a game plan and do the appropriate thing he needs to do: implement the striking he has, but use wrestling to win that fight."

Name an opponent Cain as ever "played around" with. He executes his gameplan against everyone.

(First JDS fight doesn't count, dude had an injury)

Probably because he's a legend of the sport, who competed for 13 years, and a 5x champion across two divisions. I guess some people think that qualifies him to offer an analysis.

Of course, he has a fairly bad track record of predicting fight outcomes. But this time, I think he's saying what everybody else already thinks.

He may be retired but he could still thrash you, so you may want to stick with the "don't say anything you wouldn't say to his face" rule that makes people respectable posters. Phone Post 3.0

I can't see Cain playing around during a game of tic-tac-toe, much less an MMA fight. Phone Post
