As we all know Cain Velasquez' first title defense will be against Brazilian top HW Junior Dos Santos. Here are a couple gifs to demonstrate what we might be in for...
The odds for the mega-fight are out on multiple online sports betting sites. Here are the lines:
|Junior Dos Santos||+165||+185||+160|
As we can see Cain is about a a 2:1 favorite. I believe the line is pretty accurate. I give JDS the advantage on the feet, especially in the power department. But in my opinion Cain can will be able to take Junior down if necessary and with JDS' ground game being an unknown at this point, he has to be favored.
Also I re-watched the JDS-Nelson fight last night and it did really seem like JDS has some cardio issues. With that said I will be rooting for the Brazilian to shake up the HW picture even further after Cain did past Saturday.
