Holy ****. The return of the Aztec God of destruction! Man, he's got to have some ring rust, surely. Talk about a dangerous return fight...Jaysus. I can see him getting the JDS golden punch treatment TBH.

Remember what happened the last time Cain headlined a card for a new network? Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again, lol.

@Huiop all over it....JDS's KO of Cain looks pretty damn similar to what Francis just did to Blaydes

Velasquez vs Nganou


Ngannou, KO/TKO.


This is probably the most barbaric retrun debut heavyweight booking in UFC History. Cain hasn't fought anyone in three years, the last guy he fought was Browne, and his first fight back is the biggest puncher in the History of the division--the man who put out Curtis Blaydes when not even a step knee from Overeem and a right hand from Hunt could. Cain should have abso-*******-lutely taken a tune up before signing on the line to square up with this gorilla.

Now, Velasquez may very well give him the Miocic wrestlesmesh treatment....but they all start standing. He's going to have to engage on the feet at some point, and I just don't think he's tuned in enough to avoid a shovel punch or a hook that comes from outside the stadium at hundred miles and hour and with the impact force of a meteorite.

Francis by first round KO/TKO. If Cain wins he should be fast-tracked to a title shot. This man carries his balls around in a wheelbarrow.

Francis better KO Cain in pretty much the first exchange, cause after that he's getting ****d.
