RIcco Rodriguez might have something to say about the supposed "First Latino HEavy Weight Champ".
Yeah they did want Cain back in there with JDS as soon as possible, but JDS was meant to fight Alistair instead. Werdum hadn't emerged as a true top contender in the UFC yet and Cain throughly destroyed Bigfoot. Who else were they going to give JDS? They already gave him Mir which was a ridiculous matchup.
Ricco is a tool and I don't care about him, I don't care for the UFC marketing team either.
