Dana White: Cain Velasquez Is The Next GSP Level Star

“Cain Velasquez, too, we’re literally riding him down to Mexico. I wouldn’t even go to Mexico without Cain Velasquez. Cain Velasquez is a huge star, too. When you have an entire country that’s going to follow and support you, there’s nothing bigger than that. You can argue it’s Jon Jones, it’s Ronda (Rousey), they don’t have Canada riding on their backs. They don’t have Mexico riding on their backs. When you can get a whole country behind you, that’s when you know what a big star you are. Cain is, he’s the guy everyone cares about down there. Biggest press conference in Telavisa history when we went down there.”

In a recent interview with FOX Sports, Dana White discussed the star power of his UFC heavyweight champion and what a future push to Mexico means for Cain Velasquez.
