“Not (just) Mexican – he’s one of the biggest stars that we have,” White told MMA Junkie and other reporters. “He’s one of the biggest stars on the roster. When we do (autograph) signings with Brandon Moreno, he’s one of the most popular fighters in the company. He’s your typical durable, badass Mexican fighter.

“You see him come out with the headband like Julio Cesar Chavez the other day, and what does he do? He comes out with the Julio Cesar Chavez headband and then finishes the fight with a body shot. You ever think of that? That’s pretty f*cking awesome, to be honest with you.”
