Cain Velasquez is 8-0 with 7 TKO victories but some of them have been not that impressive against a few tomato cans. Cain is a very good wrestler and Brock should have a harder time taking hime down. Big factor will be the size difference in that Brock will come in at the maximum 265 and more after he rehydrates. Cain will be around the 245 lb mark. Brock has show us in the Carwin fit that he can take a beating and barrage of punches and maintain his composure. Eventually Brock will be able to use his wrestling and size advantage to take Cain to the ground where it will be very tough for Cain to get off the ground with the weight disadvantage. A lot of Brock haters have hit the every dog line and point to Cain’s better cardio. Have to TAKE Brock large for this fight. Brock has a large reach advantage, superior weight and arguably superior ground game. Take Lesnar -135.
