Look, cain is the truth. No doubt about that...but fighting Brock is a PROBLEM for the "ufc" Heavyweights. I think Brock would struggle much more with Megareem, Fedor and Werdum (have you people finally realized that he is one of the best heavyweights in the world, or will you continue to ignore his spectacular resume?)
I know all about Cains stellar wrestling background, but I also know it didnt quite stack up with a mamouth like Cole Konrad on the wrestling mat. Brock has shown a double leg takedown, with power and speed never seen in mma. I cant predict anyone to stop that, until I see it happen. Unfortunately, no one has ever seen Cain fight off his back, so it would be a stretch for me to blindly predict Cain being able to catch Brock in a sub from his guard, or think that cain will be able to get back to his feet once he has that mammoth Brock who will outweigh him by 40 lbs, on top of him.
Cain is going to come into this fight with a Bisping-like stick and move game plan, and try to pick Brock apart. Now, I havent seen the official reach measurements between the two, but I assume Brock will have a nice litte reach advantage coming into this fight, which will allow him to be patient, and CRACK Cain with those lunchboxs attatched to the end of his arms, when Cain moves in to unleash his combos. Brock doesnt want to chace a cardio machine like Cain around for 25 minutes..so he needs to be patient, and look to catch Cain moving into range. Cain needs to be very careful when bouncing in and out of striking range with brock.
Im a big fan of Cain, but I havent coined the term the BROCKNESS MONSTER for nothing. Now that Brock has proven to be mentally tough and posses the heart of a champion...Heavyweights are going to have to show me it, to get to me to believe it. and that goes for my beloved JDS as well. Until Brock fights a wiser Carwin...I wont even consider pickling against him, unless the UFC magically imports Megareem, The God, or Fabricio "Satan" Werdum into the UFC octogon! Can Brock Lose, i GUESS...but like I said, until I see someone beat him, I wont be picking against him EVER...so dont even bother asking me where I stand on a Brock fight. lol
Look for the rest of my UFC 121 fight breakdowns in the comment section of this thread in the days to come. I will be breaking down one fight per day. Love to hear your thoughts boyz!
