Over the past decade, Javier Mendez has built San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy into one of the nation’s premier mixed martial arts training centers, with top fighters coming from all over the world.

When Mendez lists the five most talented fighters he’s seen walk through his doors and train, at least one name on the list will surprise you, if you’ve even heard of it.

O'Brien is tough. Can Cain get him?

Great article until the last line.

“But think about this, a dominant heavyweight champion, and he’s Mexican,” said Mendez, in talking about not just his ability, but potential marketability. “There’s never been anyone like that yet.”

I hate stuff like that. Who cares? I only care that he is being highly thought of for his talent.
