GTech Posted August 17, 2010 Report Share Posted August 17, 2010 So Bisping and Velasquez have alot in common. They are both products of the UFC marketing machine, both used to target a specific demographic and both far worse fighters than their exposure and hype would indicate. What they learned from Bisping though is not to kill the chances of a title shot before it actually happens. Cain instead was fed fighters he matched up well against, fighters he could easily outwrestle or outstrike, 1 dimensional fighters that he could take out of their element. If he had fought Mir, Carwin, JDS, hell even Crocop then no one would be talking about his chances against Brock, they would be talking about him moving to LHW to save his career. Does anyone here think Bisping would have been marketed above his skill level if he wasnt british? Does anyone really think that Cain would be getting his title shot already if he wasnt hispanic? Face it, Cain is a mid level fighter who became the poster boy for the UFC's agressive hispanic marketing campaign. What striker has his striking looked good against? Even decent? What wrestler has his wrestling looked good against? Takedowns or defense? I'm certainly not a Brock fan but he will expose the Great Brown Hype for what he is, a UFC marketing tool that half this forum seems to have fallen for.
