Good morning, or should I say good afternoon. I'm just another BE community member wondering what the fuck happened last night in the main event, and thus wondering where Slack is. This is worse than not having coffee in the morning.
I guess in the meantime let me just say that I'm hardly sad about the fact that I made bank on my Cain by DECISION bet. No, I am not. But it truly broke my heart to bet against Junior and then to see it happen, and then see him get booed in his post-fight (but at least stand up for himself like a boss).
I did not expect Cain's takedowns to looks so weak (at the start), but I was ready for that possibility. But like a lot of people, including Junior, obviously, I did not expect Cain to own Junior on the feet the way he did.
In retrospect, Cain gave us a hint at what was coming in the weigh-in stare-down. His stance was long, allowing his fist to be as close to JDS as was the champ's to his own face. And he admitted as much immediately after the weigh-ins, telling Helwani he wanted to send a message that he was going to hit JDS in the face too.
Cain fought long, surprising the now-usurped king by tagging him from what felt like out of Cain's range, as Cain dove in fully extended. JDS was like a wrestler who couldn't get off his back, trapped in a position he did not prepare for.
OK, now where the fuck is Slack?
