I don’t consider Cain the GOAT because the GOAT title is based on the overall summary of your career accomplishments. Injuries took their toll on Cain and stopped him before he could truly earn the title of GOAT. But I don’t think there was ever a fighter alive that could have beaten healthy prime Cain Velezquez. Even DC to this day says he has never faced anyone as good as Cain. I wonder if there is any chance he tries a come back. He is 38 so it is not entirely out of the question. The Francis fight was a horrible choice for a return fight. You don’t shake off 3 years of ring rust against a guy as unforgiving as Francis.
Who could beat prime Cardio Cain?
