Tweet Pin It UFC 150 Fan Club Q&A – Chris Weidman Complete Video UFC 150 Fighter Diary – Melvin Guillard – Episode 1 25 Comments Assapopalous420 August 10, 2012 CAINS THE MAN Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 10, 2012 Why does ethnicity only seem to matter to Americans in the case of hispanic fighters?? No one gets all excited about a fighter of African decent, i.e. Jones, Guillard, Rashad Evans, etc… In other words, an American would never say to Jones that he has extra pressure because all people who have African blood are counting on him to win. It’s just not the same for other ethnic persons living in America. What am I missing?? Log in to Reply anderson cheats August 10, 2012 Why does the emphasis have to be that he’s a Hispanic fighter? how about he’s just a fighter and leave it at that, Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim August 10, 2012 go back to mehico!! Log in to Reply robbielawler August 10, 2012 Well at least he keeps it real on his feelings towards JDS choosing Reem. He could have been more of a company man like Condit and kept quiet hoping the UFC doesnt forget about him. Log in to Reply penis August 10, 2012 Cain seems less robotic than usual. Log in to Reply pourmis August 10, 2012 this guy is ****ing machine his focus reminds me a lot of Fedors and for sure hell get the title back no doubt Log in to Reply Lazer212 August 10, 2012 Like Cain but as I’ve said before I hope JDS knocks him silly. Log in to Reply nemisfear August 10, 2012 Cain will be champ again, believe that!

Plus the other fighters that are mention are ACTUALLY from the country they are talking about. The brasilian fighters are actually from brasil. Have you ever heard an interviewer come up to rampage or jones and say, being of african descent, what are your feelings on how it affects other african american youth. They don’t give a shit, they are american. Thats it. Cain is american and they are pushing this angle with his heritage to try to branch out into the mexican market. Its kinda low. If he really wanted to get into the mexican market, then get a friggn mexican!! He does it for every other market. Log in to Reply BIG C August 11, 2012 I wonder how i would be treated if i got white pride tattooed across my chest? Log in to Reply punkfly August 11, 2012 @Joe Dog Race is a complex and rich history in the States. Basically, with Mexicans the issue is that there culture is rich is Boxing history. It’s taken a while for the Mexican culture to embrace MMA. But they have, and there is a whole generation of young Mexicans that will most likely be in the lighter weight classes. Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 11, 2012 Exactly. Marketing! Valasquez is an American, born there, raised there, trained there, got his racist tattoos there. Look at “ethnic” Mexicans in their native land. They are largely “Meztiso”, a mix of European and Amerindian. By his look (and size, Valasquez ain’t no Incan or Mayan) he is obviously more of European descent, probably Spanish (but don’t rule out Irish). So for the sake of profit let’s expand his market by trying to get Europeans on board. Cut the BS, Valasquez is 100% American. All promotion aside, as a fighter, he is a serious threat to any HW of any skin color from any country by way of any other country. Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick August 11, 2012 The only “Latino” thing thing about the reporter is the way he said latino.That’s what I don’t understand,he has good english ith no accent,except for the word latino… Log in to Reply Doyle Brunson August 11, 2012 zzzzzzzzzzzzz. they done yet? god this guy is boring. and yes i know…your mexican Log in to Reply Rugburn August 12, 2012 @4M you disgust me!! You better hope Cain or some other Mexicans don’t catch you. There gonna treat you like a pinata. First they’re going to stuff you (With something I won’t care to mention) and then beat you till they split your wig!! Log in to Reply Rugburn August 12, 2012 I guess alot of you guys are missing the fact that Cain was the first HW Mexican Champion ever!!! Thats why they stress how important his role is to the Mexican and Mexican-American fans and MMA fighters. Not only that but a majority of any fighters fans are of his own nationality. So thats why they stress how big its to Latin fans especially Mexicans. Ofcourse, Dana is marketing this to his advantage to increase his market in Mexico. Log in to Reply LOL August 12, 2012 @JoeDog It’s simple really: Black boxers paved the way already. Cain is the first Mexican Heavyweight Champion, that’s huge. So in essence, he’s what Ali was to African-Americans, but to Mexicans. 10-20-30 years from now, there will be many Mexican fighters, champions and they will all remember Cain, like all African-Americans remember Ali. Log in to Reply Dormath August 12, 2012 reporter is an idiot guy had ONE fight after the Jr loss and he WORKED his way back up no way first time UFC fighter is not working your way back up. Cain is a great fighter wish him luck in the future.

Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 14, 2012 If Valasquez’ parents were from Lithuania or even Argentina, no one would care to mention his ethnicity. He was born in the USA. He is American. Look at Overeem. He is of African descent, born in England, raised in Holland. He is considered Dutch, not English and certainly not African. The case of Americans calling themselves “Mexican” is bizarre. (To me). Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
