What you meant to say was that Cain will lose to someone who has better striking…clinch game…and better take down defense/wrestling. Neither Carwin or Lesnar fit that bill…only pieces. Carwin has edge in power over Cain and his wrestling hasn’t been tested in the UFC. Not saying that he doesn’t have wrestling(good wrestler)…it just hasn’t been put to the test yet.
Lesnar’s wrestling plus his size would wear on Cain. Lesnar has weak stand-up…just heavy hands(doesn’t automatically give you credit as a good striker). Like I said,he’s like a rock’em-sock’em robot right now. Also,don’t be like the many who let this fight determine that Cain doesn’t have any stand-up(or a chin). Its a foolish mistake. Gameplan and strategy being poorly executed resulted in him taking those shots from Kongo.
Most people didn’t know much about Velasquez until it was announced that Kongo was replacing Herring. People didn’t even know his wrestling credentials. He has great potential…recognizing this is being confused with over-hyping him.
Its not like he is an overrated HW top contender or anything. I wonder how you say that in French
I meant to say what I wrote, and both do fit the bill.
Carwin’s wrestling does not need to be tested “in the UFC”. He is a high level wrestler. It is good enough for him to not be taken down easily and be able to get up quickly when he does --> which is all he needs.
Lesnar does not have weak standup. He is not a high level striker like Kongo, but his striking is better than Cain’s - which is what my post was about.
As for Cain, I have been following him for quite a while now. I knew of him long before there was any mention of him fighting Kongo.
Strategy and game plan are not the reason he took those shots. He took those shots because he is not a striker. He had not done any striking till he started training MMA. Kongo was a kickboxer before he came to MMA. He is a high level striker, similar to how Cain is a high level wrestler. It just so happens MMA favors wrestlers over strikers, which is why Cain won.
However, like I said, if someone has good enough wrestling to stuff take downs and get back up when taken down, and have decent striking, they will beat Cain.
