    Is Erik "El Goyito" Perez the only mexican that is in the ufc? I just looked at his bio and he was born in mexico so now i'm interested in watching his next fight lol.

    Has anyone seen his past fights? Is he good?

    Thanks

    Well, do you count Joey Beltran...the MEXicutioner?

    and for the record...would you say that is a Mexican Executioner...or an executioner that only executes Mexicans?

    Yeah I know all of them but they are mexican-american like me. I'm just curious if there are other mexicans in the ufc that were actually born in mexico. I remember Efrain Escudero but he got cut.

    cruz is of mexican heritage

    Perez is the only fighter currently employed by the UFC who lives in Mexico (as far as I know)
