Cain is strong in the clinch and if he knocks his opponent on the ground, he often uses grappling skills to maintain a dominant position over his counterpart. Cain’s wins always came from his knocking punches. He does not believe in submission. Cain’s fans praise him for his cardiovascular training and nicknamed him “Cardio Cain”.
