    I would love to see mma gain a foothold in Mexico. Mexican boxers are always among the most exciting fighters in the world.

    Lulz. They did the same thing with Huerta years back. I remember being in East Los Angeles to visit my Grandfather for Christmas and there was Huerta/Guida billboards everywhere.
