Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos will meet tonight for UFC on Fox 1 and will put on one awesome show for the Anaheim crowd and for the fans watching the UFC for the first time.

Both fighters possess all the skills necessary to make this fight great and for Cain—his ground game may be the key to victory over JDS.

Cain winning would strike fear in the heavyweight division. Not only is Cain a naturally great wrestler, but he is also a very powerful striker with extraordinary cardio.

Brock Lesnar has already learned the hard way of what power Cain possesses and how Cain can make you look bad wherever you go.

In a rematch, Brock would most likely lose yet again, and if he were to face Alistair Overeem, Cain possesses the strength to knock out Overeem and can also take him down and hold him there.

If Fabricio Werdum can stand and trade with Overeem, Cain definitely can.

If Cain is able to get past JDS, there really isn't a top five fighter who can definitely say they could beat Cain.

Ground or standing, Cain can make you look silly, so this belt could be defended many, many more times.

At only 29, Cain can most certainly do that, and with his overall great skillset, it could be tough for any heavyweight to pull that belt away from him.
