Cain Velasquez redefines the ‘Mexican Heavyweight’

It sounds like Cain Velasquez had to overcome some negative stereotypes about Mexicans when he first arrived at AKA:

What did trainer Javier Mendez say the first time you showed up at his gym?

Javier always thinks heavyweight Mexican is like being fat, you know, so when they told him, ‘We’re gonna get you a Mexican heavyweight. Aren’t you going to go to the airport to pick him up?’ He was like, ‘No, I’m not going to the airport to pick him up.’ Mexican heavyweight. He thought I was going to be fat. And then when he sees me he was like, ‘What?’

He also tries once again to explain the sentiment behind his Brown Pride tattoo, which surprisingly enough is not about rising up against the ghostface and keeping Hispanic bloodlines pure. Stupid Mexicans don’t even know how racial pride is supposed to work.
