Cain's gotta win today right? To keep the 265 division interesting. Surely we don't want Cain to slide into that Koscheck/Sonnen/Frankiln category of guys who've lost twice to the champ and so are in a no-man's land in their own division. I mean, there's a meaty Dutch wrecking machine on the horizon so it's not like things would get easy for JDS if he wins, but the division needs a dynamic guy like Cain to stay relevant.
Meanwhile, I'm super curious to see how Alan Belcher goes against Okami. I love Belcher's attitude and the fact he has 8 finishes out of 9 wins in the UFC. And that they're evenly split 4/4 between tkos/subs, so the guy is clearly multi-dimensional and very attacking-minded. And has testicles the size of bowling balls as he proved when he decided to play footsy with Rousimar "The Knee Wrecker" Palhares. Okami's his toughest opponent yet though.
Also love seeing Joe Lauzon go to work. In 29 fights ONLY ONE DECISION! And on the single occasion he went to the judges it was the Fight Of The Night. It's impossible
for that dude to be boring.

Yeah, the guy sort of explains it, but not very well. It does seem odd.
