Man, its hard to take some of those cats in Mexico seriously. No disrespect to anyones culture or country. This was just an observation and perception. I know its a culture thing, but their entrance music many times, sounds like carnival music. I know these guys have a rich history of fighters, but I cant imagine coming from the school of hard knocks and going into battle with that music. It was very evident in the Mares/Gonzales fight. I know everyone doesnt wanna come in to "Mama Said Knock You Out," but damn.

To a degree, I agree with you. It's hard to fathom getting amp'd for combat, while listening to Speedy Gonzalez's "Mexican Hat dance" music. That being said, ever notice how these guys are singing along to their song, with "taking a shower" like pride? That alone is enough for me to know, that stuff means something to them, far BEYOND how it makes them look.
