Cain Velasquez was born in Salinas, California. The city’s nickname is ‘America’s Salad Bowl’ and it’s filled with a slew of American victorian homes. Cain Velasquez is American. Efrain Escudero is Mexican and he was kicked from the UFC with a record of 13-2. If you want to take the route of hyphens and technicalities, Cain Velasquez is Mexican-American. However, this would mean Brock Lesnar is Viking-American and the UFC hasn’t mentioned that in the blitzkrieg of UFC promos we’ve been exposed to. Michael Bisping is actually Cyprus-British and Alistair Overeem is British-Dutch — with a little bit of horse meat mixed in there.
Unfortunately, MiddleEasy won’t be covering UFC on FOX: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos, but we will be there for UFC 138 this weekend and UFC 139 later this month. The reason being, of course, is that UFC on FOX coincides with the launch week of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and I’ve already made special dinner reservations with my Xbox 360 for that weekend. However, in the meantime watch this Dethrone video about Mexicans and blood sacrifices, since I’m horrible at segues. [Source]
