I watched that sequences a couple of times on TV the other night and it doesn't look (to me) like he got hit. I think he was moving too fast and shifted his weight the wrong way, losing his balance. Unfortunately for him. he lost his bearings when he got back to his feet and got clocked.
he was clearly punchdrunk when he got up off the ground before he tripped, the jab brock threw straight after he got up before the stumble/twist was lazy looking, he was on the back foot stunned before and the little stumble/twist was easily recoverable if he was clear headed.
i was suprised at cain's ability to easily escape brock on the ground and how cain took brock down.

All it takes is all you got.
The WEC will be no more next year.
Me either, its confusing.
“I’m not looking at this thing as a negative like, ‘Oh, we lost a couple of fights on Versus,’ ” White said. “It’s a positive. We’ve got the UFC on Versus. The last one we did pulled killer numbers. Now that we’ve added these other two weight classes to the UFC, everything is positive. I’m not looking at it like, ‘Oh, we lost two fights. We have to pick them up somewhere else.’ ”
It is too bad that fewer events overall will be on Versus, but the ratings of the stuff that is there should be higher so hopefully in time there will be more events.
Really with adding another company I'd hope they're would be quite a few more events overall.
i think it was last week it was announced that WEC and UFC were being merged.what do you think about this?good or bad for the sport?
i personally think it will be a mixed bag.
bad in the short term as there will be less bouts televised,and it will cut down on the opportunities for the fighters.
in the long term it may be good .it may give other organisations a shot at larger exposure as some have a different take on the sport.
i'm not sure if i like it or not.i'm leaning towards not.
