You dont get MMA on free tv anynore you have to pay for it on a a la carte per month basis. Its not alot of money for those of us who make good wages.

12 usd and you get all the ufc content including the PPV. In case you didnt know Werdum is a regular commentater for UFC TV down here which brings him more exposure than Cain
Thanks, that explains it.

If you ask Mexicans who follow mma, hard to find, Werdum is more popular mma fighter over Cain.

What part of Mexico do you live
Gotta agree with this.

Remember he's a commentator for the spanish broadcasts for a while now (a good one IMO), I'm sure that's also helped.

Werdum is a funny dude. Seems really cool. If it weren't for Cain I'd like to see him as champ

I don't get it. From what I remember, Cain gets some pretty big receptions at the airport when he travels to Mexico, goes to a lot of TV shows and, during the press conference there EVERYONE was crazy about him.. shouting his name, praising him, etc...

How is he not popular or less than Werdum??? weird!

Easy way to explain it.. TV is different from actually living here
