    Oh yeah, it's always an excusable event when Cain loses...…..a bit like Anderson in the Wiedman fights. Except it's not, they lost, deal with it.

    Yeah, I'm bummed for Cain, but he definitely lost, no doubt about that. He's out of the queue for now, and will have to reassess...

    Saw that....is it just me or is this guy vastly over rated?
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I think it's far too early to say...….but beating a guy like Caceres on his debut is not to be sniffed at, Caceres gave Yair Rodriguez some serious trouble only a short time ago. To me, that's a massive win very early for Kron, but it was very much a fight in his favour.

    From what I saw any decent grappler with good striking will own Kron.....but what the fuck do I know

    More than likely, but we have to remember Kron is very green in his MMA career too, he's not someone who should be looking to contend for a wee while yet. Many people thought Conor would be starched by a clean striker or a good wrestler early on also.

    Not sure age matters, it's about length of time doing MMA. Yes, age is an issue on how much time left in the game, but at 30, Kron has plenty of time on his side still.

    ah 30 is pretty damn old to be starting to make a run, it's going to take a while for any kind of striking to develope
