Cain Velasquez -- Man of Few Words

10/24/2010 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Most UFC fighters would have been talking serious trash after taking out Brock Lesnar in the octagon -- but not freshly-minted  UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

We got the champ leaving Ecco in Hollywood after the fight, and he only did one thing -- pay homage to Lesnar.

Classy dude.

What's the big deal? This is all staged and faked. Everyone knows who's going to win before the even get in the ring.

@ Bubba, Janets right. Didnt you see the Jake Shields fight. Dana White is quickly becoming Vince McMahon, cash rules. Fixed outcomes equals stable cash-flow ...

I love the UFC but the integrity of this fight just isnt right. The past month they have been building up Cain. Informing people of his mexican heritage and all the fun stuff. Knowing that Anaheim and the entire state of California has a huge mexican population. This past Monday, the UFC held a rally for him. A RALLY. They have never done that for anybody else. And it takes place in LA. Do I need to even say that 99.9% of the audience were mexicans or of mexican descent? Seriously, theres all the talk of him becomming the first Mexican champ and the fact its Mexican heritage month....you couldnt be more set up to win.

If you look at it, Cain vs. anyone else for the belt without having beat Lesnar wouldnt sell. Lesnar beat Carwin to show he could beat the best strikers. So when he comes up against Cain most people thought he would go through him too. But with all I said in the above, Cain wins and now Cain vs. Junior Dos Santos next year will SELL OUT and have a huge amount of PPV buys compared to what it would have because Cain is the first mexican champ, even though he is from Arizona.

Coincidence?

Same thing happened. They brought in the middleweight champion from Strikeforce, he looked like crap but there is money in a GSP vs. Shields fight so he stole the decision. But you ask Dana he'll say never leave it in the hands of the judges.

I really hope in wrong too, but this just seems like more than coincidence to me.

Care to explain the stitches that these fighters need after a fight? Does a make up man slip into the ring when were not looking and apply incredibly realistic fake blood the faces of fighters? Really? Maybe you should try watching it before saying something so immeasurably stupid.
