Default Just a Single Leg

I wonder if Rothwell has ever seen a single leg takedown in his whole life? That was just brutal. Cain is tough, heck of a wrestler and a fighter, but Rothwell should be embarrased for not being able to stop and counter a single leg takedown especially from someone 30 pounds lighter than him.

Does Rothwell even belong in the UFC? I mean I know the UFC HW division isn't the strongest, but Rothwell looked like an amatuer at best.

yeah that was a very poor performance... He did a worse job then kongo at defending himself on the ground which is very sad....

Rothwell is basically a smaller version of Tim Sylvia

Not only that, Rothwell gassed in the first round. Seriously, don't these guys like Rothwell and Roy Nelson realize that extra weight is costing them fights? Nelson was doing pretty good against Arlovski, gassed, and got KOed. If Nelson fights heavyweight in the UFC, he's going to get murdered.

The thing about Cain is that he is so frustrating with his wrestling!

I almost feel like his opponents just want to SCREAM "just let us fight, just give me onne second"

He is just so ferocious and never stops, they cannot pause for breath.

However if someone can neutralise his wrestlign then I think most can take him standing and powerwise he seems to be lacking against these big boys.

Also, Cain has one huge problem. He has talent to reach the top, but I cannot see him bossing Brock around like he has with others. Brock can handle his wrestling and fire some bombs back!
