Cain Velasquez Shakes Off Question Concerning Brown Pride Tattoo; Dana White Goes On Rampage

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was unprovoked by a question concerning his “Brown Pride” tattoo during a press conference for UFC 155 on Thursday.

UFC president Dana White, however, was not.

“People that have a problem with the ‘Brown Pride’ tattoo are morons,” White said. “It says ‘Brown Pride.’ Big deal (that) the guy is proud to be Mexican.”

White added that when he lived in Boston, “every Italian was running around with something Italian on their body. Every guy who was Irish had some Irish tattoo on him.”

Velasquez just remained in his quiet demeanor and said that his “fighting style just kind of speaks for itself. I’m kind of private in everything else.”

Velasquez will attempt to win back the UFC heavyweight title when he faces Junior dos Santos Saturday night at UFC 155.
