That's what I thought too until someone just posted a clip in slow mo that clearly shows Cain's head snapping back from a punch right before his knee gave out. The punch was kind of similar to the one Henderson landed on Fedor as it was barely viewable due to the camera angle. I'm pretty sure a half uppercut by Ngannou would be enough to knock out most.

True, but Cain's facial reaction was not that of being knocked out by a punch. I'm sure it hurt! But the knees blowing out was the big reason
Yeah it was probably a combo of the 2 for sure and with Cain's scrambling ability he might have gotten out of that mess but with Ngannou standing over him 1 clean shot and it's over. Cain looked frail to me, I know it's strange to say that about a 250 pound guy but he didn't look healthy to me.

Earl
I agree.

I agree.
And his skin looked kind of yellowish to me which could be any number of things. I can only imagine the germs these guys and girls pick up rolling around on a mat and in MMA gyms which given the volume of people who train there are rarely 100% clean.

Any thoughts on last night's UFC 236 card? Some wild matches, I noticed. Anyone think Holloway vs. Poirier lived up to the hype?

I sort of had hopes that this Israel guy would become the next Anderson Silva but seems like nope. Great fighter and all that but people couldn´t even touch Silva when he was in his prime unless he felt like taking some punches just to prove he could take them.

But what an awesome fight it was anyway.

The Holloway fight was good too, he had some moments where I thought he was going to take over, with Poirier seemingly tired. I would to see both rematch McGregor.

All in all, I liked UFC better 10+ years ago. And Pride was awesome too. I don't find these new guys as interesting.
