“People back in the States don’t get it. Down here, Cain is the king. It’s kind of hard to grasp until you see it firsthand.”

“I would hear stories about how, when he came here, he gets mobbed. But now being here these last few days, and watching how people interact with him and see him, it’s on a whole different level. It’s like soccer players around the world. It’s not like this is just another MMA guy. Some of the biggest stars in the world, that’s the way he’s treated here in Mexico.”

UFC champion Can Velasquez’s teammate Daniel Cormier talked to MMAFighting about the reaction Velasquez is getting from the Mexican fans. Apparently everywhere they go he’s getting mobbed by swarms of fans.

The fight goes down tonight at UFC 188, think Velasquez is going to get it don?
