    I think Cain has the best chance because he is by far the most likely to go on GSP/Silva title run. Pettis, if he can defend the belt a few times, has the most potential as a PPV IMO.

    I am a big fan but I dont speak for everyone.

    I also dont get the hate for the Brown Pride tattoo but we have all been through this before. Cain is expressing his pride in his culture, heritage & his families hard work and accomplishments. Bad choice of words or way of expressing it, possibly but it is not a racist statement or stance, in my opinion.
    I wouldn't like his tattoo if he was 100% mexican but it' looks really stupid considering he is only a quarter mexican

    I say Weidman if he can get through Machida/Vitor. He is likable, and certainly already has the reputation. He is also the most well rounded champ they got, in my opinion.

    I can defintetely see how you would think that. Dethroning Silva was huge for Weidman. I think he has q better chance of being w longterm champ than Pettis as well. I don't think anyone is as exciting as Pettis is in the cage which gives him a huge edge imo.

    Pettis is the most exciting champion. I won't argue that.

    If Weidman can get 4 states behind him that can be bigger than Mexico

    All GSP needs to obtain Velasquez level stardom is a White Pride tattoo.

    Dana White says so much, and most of it is usually wrong. But you never know... even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    I dont think Cain will ever be a big star like GSP. He has the personality of a fish.
    Jones Era >> Machida Era
    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.

    The fact that there is potential to interpret it as racist leaves a door open that is a potential PR nightmare. Whether Cain is affiliated with either of the gangs that also use it doesn't matter, the fact that it's a grey area can be a problem.
