Remember when Fabricio Werdum argued in Episode 1 of UFC 188’s “Embedded” that Cain Velasquez is an “American who thinks he’s a Mexican”? Well, not surprisingly, it looks like those comments have lit a fire under the heavyweight champ.
The UFC has released Episode 3 for the latest “Embedded” series, and in it, the heavyweights discuss a recent interaction where Velasquez evidently refused to say hello.
In the new segment, Velasquez explains why Werdum’s statements have angered him, and further, how he’s going to channel that on Saturday. “Vai Cavalho”, meanwhile, isn’t back pedalling away from what he said, although he does admit that the champion “represents Mexico well”.
So, it looks like there’s a little bit of heat building up behind what already should be a fantastic fight. You can watch the latest episode below.
UFC 188 will be hosted by the Mexico City Arena.
