    Good point. Somehow I had not connected those dots.

    Like I said, logically I think Cain will win. If I was betting money, I would bet on Cain as long as the odds weren't ridiculous.

    If I do a review I'll check to make sure, but I'm assuming now, whoever voted for Struve/Johnson to be Sub of the Night with myself got that prediction DEAD-ON!

    according to wiki, cain made his debut in october 2006

    Brock - June 2007

    That's not even a year of experience in brown pride's favor.

    brock vs cain wasn't about experience as much as it was quality of training.

    btw,

    <<<< 5-0

    every fight went as expected except roy-herman. Nelson has nothing but the overhand right standing yet keeps hitting these dumbasses with it.

    ^Yup you got HOF for this performance, along with a couple others.

    Cain velasquez was training wrestling/MMA before Brock decided he wanted to be a UFC champ, and way after he had been a collegiate wrestler. Cain I believe is younger and has been training his whole life for the moments he faces in the Octagon, this isn't the case with Lesnar. I don't know if you see my experience point yet, but throwing huts to a QB in Minnesota wasn't helping Lesnar's boxing.

    I just wonder where you pull your facts.

    Brock was a collegiate wrestler too. Cain played football in school.

    Cain joined aka after college, and made his debut not even a year before Lesnar, and started off facing not as good competition.

    true, but it really just boils down to quality of training > quantity here.

    brock's training camp was built around him. when he stepped into the ring to spar, he got his ass kicked. when he got his ass kicked, they'd say "let's dial back on this and show you how to stifle subs once you hit the ground"

    Cain's training camp wasn't built around him like this. when he stepped into the ring to spar the first few times, he undoubtedly got his ass kicked. but after this happened, they likely ordered him to do some extra rounds.

    ^Once they both started training at the same time, i can agree that Cains may have been a better focused camp, but I feel your overlooking my point that Cain has been in this type of training environment longer then Brock. WHEN Brock entered the UFC, that is when he started TRAINING MMA, that wasn't the case with Cain.

    I UNDERSTAND Brock was a collegiate wrestler too, but you can say IF ANYTHING, that was for 4 years of his life, 7 max. In 2000 he participated in his last tourney, winning, in highschool. 7 years PASSED before he entered the MMA world...He wasn't focusing on MMA or even wrestling training that whole time, and you best believe Velasquez was.
