Yeah, probably this. Not convinced Cain can get JDS down at all, even less so that he can keep him there. Not only is his TDD ridiculous (88%!), but he uses his range so well, opponents seem to give up on the TD after a couple attempts.
Cain is going to end up striking with him, and losing. May not get KOd this time, but certainly picked apart.[/quote]
I can see this, but both Cain and JDS can exhibit less than stellar head movement while dropping their hands. That has me unsure how it will go.
I no longer feel it is fair to say he is over rated. He has beaten enough contenders that he is somewhat a known quantity. The only question, and it is a big one, is how good is he off his back. The fact none of the wrestlers have put him there is to his credit.
That’s a good observation and something I can’t claim to have considered before. Will keep an eye out for this. I feel like JDS is better at moving in and out, whereas Cain plods straight forward more. Also think JDS uses his reach much better.
JDS has, with the exceptions of Brock and Reem, cleaned up the division. Yeah, it’s a shallow one, but he has taken on and beaten everybody they’ve put in front of him, which just happens to be everybody worth mentioning (don’t say Kongo).
