    Does a fighter get to wear the colors of their ethnic background or nationality?

    Noticed Stephens is always wearing the Mexican color Reebok uniform

    No one will understand this, but it is actually 100% true.

    A long time ago, someone referred to a fighter on here as 1/3 Chinese. A response said 'You cannot be one third Chinese'.

    Many pages of debate followed. Many. But it was eventually confirmed that you cannot be one third Chinese (or any other race lol).

    Sherdoggers were cooler and engaged more back then.

    He reps Mexico because of his family or something, i'm not sure in what way though, he mentioned it sometime... either he's part mexican or his wife's family is and he's proud of it, or both.

    Lol, that sounds fun :)

    In reality you can definitely be 1/3, because genes aren't passed on in halves or quarters.

    I read awhile back that his mother is Mexican. He certainly doesn't look like it. I always took as him as more of country boy hick type by the way he looks and acts.

    Cub Swanson's mother is Mexican too and he doesn't look biracial either. Must be "White Hispanics"

    I think you're allowed to rep whatever country you want. Cub repped Austria in his fight against Artem I believe.

    Mexican is an offensive term.

    No you can’t man. My Dad’s cousin was 1/3 Filipino, but he wasn’t.
