    It was a good contrast with "Viking Brock" to talk about having immigrant parents, ect.. but now his recent opponents are equally brown. and equally poor or even poorer

    JDS: more brown - Brazilians are the brownest of all South Americans

    JDS: more under privileged

    Cain: Good family, parents own property

    JDS: broken home, alcoholic dad left early. Mom breaking her back to support family

    Cain: College grad

    JDS: Dropped out of HS. Couldn't even get into the military because of broken tooth. Working as a busboy before MMA

    As you can see JDS has this poor under dog thing locked down. So now they need to push Cain as a hungry hard working fighter (which JDS could arguably top him too)

    Very true. This time around there's no angles though, it's pretty much a fighter vs fighter thing they're going for.

    this battle will determine once and for all who is the brown-for-brown greatest.

    What more brown means lol
    I thought brown was having native ancestry, like people in mexico. Most brazilians are either white or black or a mix of the two.

    Because they want to break into the Mexican market? Sounds like a good thing to do and I'm sure they checked their demographics to see how they could market Cain.

    Seriously this is nothing but simple marketing /overtheheadformost.

    JDS is literally more brown than Cain. Look at their pics together. Cain is white compared to him.

    Their rematch will sell more than their contrasting backgrounds. I think that's why they didn't go any poor immigrant route. Plus, they've pretty much beaten where these two guys came from into our heads.

    I don't think JDS is brown, more like yellow.

    Will Cain walk out to mariachi music again? I like that excerpt from Chaels's the Voice of Reason when he says something along the line of "when I hear that music I look at his trainers and expect to see someone carrying a plate of sizzling fajitas. Hot plate folks!"

    That support mexican fighter angle should not go any further. But it will. So forgetaboutit. Know what im sayan?

    Cain: Milking the genetics, "Look how Mexican I am!"
    JDS: "I'm Brazilian."

    Who's more "real"? Yeah.

    [EDIT]
    Google "Cain Velasquez Brown Pride". Seriously?
