    Cain injured, Yair cut, and feeding young Grasso to the wolves.

    Does UFC still care about getting big in Mexico?

    Whenever I would go to Mexico, I didn't notice a lot of UFC things.

    The only times I remember anything UFC related on public TV over there was the TUF with Cain and Werdum, and the second fight between Weidman and Anderson. Both of those were so long ago.

    No, Modelo is the official beer of the UFC. Stipe has the immigrant mentality that appeals to Mexicans.

    It’s funny how Werdum was more popular to the Mexican crowd than Cain was.

    I was in Mexico recently and the overwhelming sentiment was that UFC was a a dying fad for gringos, and that respectable men followed boxing.

    True story.

    No, he was not. Werdum's Spanish was better though.

    Still lots of Latinos in the UFC. Kelvin has been doing well lately so we carries the brown pride flag for us until someone else steps up lol.
