Junior clearly has alot of heart, and anyone that can last for 5 rounds with a highly trained killing machine is still a champion in my eyes.
I was on the edge of my seat thinking that Junior was just an uppercut or overhand right away from winning the fight. I was hoping that Junior would try to mix up his striking a bit more with some leg kicks or knees in the clinch...not an easy task with a wrestler...however I think Junior was doing well with body shots.
Either way its back to the drawing board for Junior...and there are a slue of fights that Junior should consider next before completing the trilogy with Cain. Some of the competitors I think Junior should consider is Daniel Cormier, Fabricio Verdum, or Alister Overeem
