By: Gareth A. Daviex, The Telegraph

"Behind yesterday's launch of UFC 180 in Mexico City in mid-November there has been a juggernaut in the planning and with Cain Velasquez as the UFC's heavyweight champion, indeed the first Mexican heavyweight champion, and a challenger in Spanish-speaking Fabricio Werdum, it created the perfect storm.

 

"On Tuesday, backing up the start of the TUF Mexico series - itself expected to be a smash hit with fans with its tapestry of fighters from nine countries involved - a crack card outlined in Mexico City, in front of fans, simulcast in Spanish and English. A united nations event.

Dennis Bermudez vs Ricardo Lamas

Norman Parke vs Diego Sanchez

Kelvin Gastelum vs Jake Ellenberger"
