Log in to Reply cgbloke August 26, 2013 Oh, you are mexican so you must be special….not. Log in to Reply Adonis August 26, 2013 Fck race I’m a big Cain fan, that guy has more heart than most of the UFC. He’ll be champ or top of the division for a long time. Log in to Reply josh August 26, 2013 UFC should be pushing Erik Perez hes the next big thing in Mexico and he can speak spanish to Log in to Reply josh August 26, 2013 cain dont know a lick of spanish Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 26, 2013 Cain looks mostly European due his light skin color and size. “Real” ethnic Mexicans are natives and many, like the Maya are very small people. “Mexican” is sort of a misnomer, if you ask me. “Mexican mix” (“Mestizo” in Spanish) seems more appropriate. Just like the USA, Mexico is a country and it’s peoples are very mixed. There are Asian Americans, African Americans, Latino Americans etc.. In the case of Cain Valasquez, an American born guy with European and Mestizo Mexican roots I would simply call him an American with a stupid tattoo paying tribute to people with brown skin. Log in to Reply r.navarro August 26, 2013 ha, ha, me too Chicago. everyone loves to hate. Log in to Reply humanrace August 26, 2013 come on, no mention of the opportunity that America has given to all people of the world, the opportunity of a new life, hope for a better future. Oh, and i just wanted to mention, the Spanish Conquistidors invaded the mexican land and slaughted millions hence mexicans speak spanish, not english. inaddition the mexican people have been fleeing their country for decades, while the people they leave behind suffer more and more, so stop be cowards and go back to mexico and free your people of bondage and masacures, you talk about heart but you run, so show your heart and stay and fight. Log in to Reply MMAMessiah August 26, 2013 @Chicago…I assure this won’t be bigoted, in fact Cain is one of my favorite fighters, BUT… The Mexican flag and all things Viva La Mexico that come from him is a bit strange, because Mexico sucked so much his family risked life and limb to escape to AMERICA several times…He was born in AMERICA, attended an AMERICAN institution for higher learning, trains at AMERICAN Kickboxing Academy and made his fame and money in an AMERICAN company. The Brown Pride tattoo actually doesn’t bother me at all, he is brown. He is not; however, Mexican. Log in to Reply Homero August 26, 2013 @Chicago, LOL…sad but true. Log in to Reply jona August 26, 2013 all nationalities brawl. just promote the human race next time :p Log in to Reply Iknives August 26, 2013 That picture looks exactly like Joe Rogan pretending to be a Mexican warrior. Log in to Reply lord faron August 26, 2013 I think it’s a bit over board why is it important what nationality you are? this is fighting and all the BS race crap needs to go! all it does is divide people the end period! Log in to Reply Mead Drapes August 26, 2013 Joe Dog nailed it. Still waiting for them to make a video of them chopping some heads off with a chainsaw to honor Mexican culture. Oh and before you throw around the race card idiotas I have a Spanish last name and family in Mexico. Log in to Reply Gabe August 26, 2013 Boy we’ve got some bright people here. I feel like I got stupid after reading pretty much every single one of these comments. Log in to Reply T'Challa August 26, 2013 Brown Pride all day! I don’t see why it’s so difficult for haters to respect him being proud of his heritage. He knows he’s American, there’s no law against honoring your parent’s heritage. Stipe Miocic is an American that wears a Croatian flag on his shorts in honor of his parent’s home country..nobody has a problem with it. Log in to Reply MMAgiantsilva August 26, 2013 What the hell is Joe Rogan wearing in that picture? Log in to Reply kill666 August 26, 2013 Well nobody can deny mexican fighters are warriors. Just do some research and you will see how many great boxing champions do mexico have produce. Im sorry but Mexicans, Irish and Samoans are made to be warriors. Log in to Reply wcoastassassin August 26, 2013 Americans invented or improved every, yes every idea that makes a dime. Everyone follows our lead, and now they hate on us in the process. They wouldn’t know how to clean their arse if it were not for Americans. Log in to Reply Stockton What August 26, 2013 Nothing wrong with honoring your parents hometown but i agree that Cain’s approach seems somewhat lopsided considering he was born and bred in The US of A. Tito Ortiz represents both his mexican and american roots during his entrances which I believe is something more suitable for Cain. Log in to Reply Ozinator August 26, 2013 Too all the proud USican non-others in here who want the others to be thankful and appreciative to the USA for being allowed to pick tomatoes… The reason people flee from countries to the USA, more often than not, is due to US hegemony. Even a very ignorant person can understand that a guy like Vicente Fox was a puppet of Empire. When the US forces unfair “free trade” upon smaller countries(easy to control fiefs), subsidizes corn, then drop ships the product onto mixed economies traditionally living off the land, the people are forced into US owned slave factories or into taking chances north of the border…which of course is designed to break labor in the US. So having them respect the phoney US religion of the Virgin Mother, Betsy Ross and Christ, George Washington is even dumber than a “privileged” house slave believing in it all. Log in to Reply Meat Drapes August 26, 2013 kill666: Do you really believe Mexicans, Irish and Samoans are somehow superior warriors? Have ANY of these countries EVER been successful in conquest on a relevant scale? Mexicans, Irish and Samoans get into combat sports because that is usually their way out of poverty. Italians and Jews were great boxers 80 years ago but no one is going to go into boxing when they can attend college and earn a good living until they are old. If “great warriors” made superior fighters then wouldn’t the Greeks or Mongolians be the best? Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick August 26, 2013 That crap about “this race has more heart then that other race” is just stupid and backwards thinking imo. There’s fighters from every race that show enormous hearts. Heart and work ethic has nothing to do with your race, it’s about how you are raised. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick August 26, 2013 There was a Mexican boxer on a boxing undercard who just faked a groin shot and did not want to get back up so they DQEd him for not fighting. Does that mean this guy is not a mexican or doesn’t have Maya or Aztec blood? Because he looked very native to me and still had 0 heart. And then there’s all the other Mexcian boxing legends who show heart in their fights. There’s black fighters faking knees(Koscheck) and then there’s Jon Jones who gets his arm ****ed up pretty bad by an armbar and just keeps going. Log in to Reply paddedummy August 27, 2013 @ 1:48 ” We come from a blood line that never fails” LOL, you outnumbered white spanish conquistadors 1000 to 1 and you stil got your asses handed to you and your land occupied. I have noticed that this so called warrior mentality(AKA “heart”) which compels boxers/mmartists to keep fighting even though they are all mangled and have no chance of winning is proof of a lack of intelligence. The reason white spaniards easily defeated savages was because europeans were geniuses in comparison. Spaniards had developed steel swords/armor, refined fencing skills and domesticated horses while the Aztecs were still using clubs with obsidian stone on the end like cavemen. The spanish did not win because they had this “warrior spirit” which prevents a man from recognizing his superiors and admitting defeat, they won because they had bigger brains! Log in to Reply Rob August 27, 2013 Let’s face it you hating white boys, you talk shit from the comfort of your homes. **** you. It’s ok for all the Irish, Brazilian, Japanese, Swedish, British and Canadian guys to rep their nations but the Mexicans need to put a lid on it? Eat a dick. Yes, USA is where it’s at, no shit. I’m a proud American-born son of an illegal Mexican immigrant mother. I served in the Marine Corps, fought in Iraq, blah blah blah. Still proud of my heritage and roots. **** you for having a problem with it. When is the last time you invented something, @ wcoastassassin? Never. @ MMAMessiah, this nation does it all at the expense of countless poorly paid workers around the world, while borrowing ever-increasingly from China; becoming this powerful and wealthy in a relatively short span of time happened via ****ing over many people and deception. @humanrace, where did your ancestors flee from? Why didn’t they stay and fight out whatever dilemma they left behind in their motherland? All three of you are louder pussies than bag of screaming cats Log in to Reply Rob August 27, 2013 @Joe Dog, there are big folks in every culture. Caucasian genes are not necessary in order to produce large people, fool. Log in to Reply KBF August 27, 2013 This is all money money money. If the Mex ego is massaged properly the UFC will get more PPV buys from them when there is a Mex fighter in the octogon. Was Mcgregor and the boston irish obvious enough? Mcgregor was in the prelims and was treated like the headliner. Its really all about the heart and intelligence of the fighter and has nothing to do with race. Log in to Reply KBF August 27, 2013 Funny, your hear about the fighting Irish and now the Mexican Warrior. From Ali, Frazier, Foreman and Tyson. Now Jon Jones and Anderson Silva the two best P4P MMA fighters ever I have never heard “The Spirit of the African Warrior” or anything close. Hmmmm. Log in to Reply T'Challa August 27, 2013 @Ozinator, I appreciate you dropping some serious knowledge man.. unfortunately too many of these posters are just racists and will use any excuse to spew hatred. Reason, logic and intelligence doesn’t have any effect on those kind of people. Log in to Reply Ozinator August 27, 2013 @T’Challa, Cheers, Mate! Sad you may be right but I remember not having the tools to think critically or understand why I was believing the things I did. As right as you are and as dismissive as I too get with the dummies, I shouldn’t forget that they too have potential. What’s weird is that I have an easier time talking about this with right wing old school racists because they don’t have a million bricks in their liberal guilt buttresses. I see above a couple examples of “We are all one race” (a nicer way of saying “get over it”)…that unrealized form of dismissive racism is harder to breach than the caricature stuff the unrealized racists like to point at.
