    It used to be Cain but he is old and blew his knee on his last fight, he is now hugging dudes in pretend fights.

    There are plenty of really good Mexican and Mexican-American fighters. Cain was the clear cut favorite at one time. Now its kind of a toss-up but Gaethje is up there.

    lol whenever people mention Gaethje or Jeremy Stephens being Mexican. They both look and sound like Midwestern country boys.

    Just heritage. Just wanted to troll a little since that seems to be a touchy subject here for whatever reason. Tony is Def a beast. Best active Mexican Heritage fighter. Kelvin, Cain, Cejudo, Gaethje, Pettis (Mex/PR), Diaz', Cruz all in the mix.

    I'd say Alejandro Perez and Yair Rodriguez are the best Mexican national fighters. Lack of wrestling holds them back as a nation.

    Edit: Aparently Josh "The Punk" Thompson has some Mexican in him too, tf hahaha.

    I say if you have 50 percent Mexican in your blood. You're considered Mexican to me.

    I thought Stephens only repped Mexico because of his wife being Mexican and his kids?
