Seems smart to potentially lose a dude named Melendez when you're trying to expand in the Latin American market

Neither guy speaks Spanish. I think Cain and Werdum are the only people in the same weightclass, that both speak Spanish. Although Cain's Spanish is pretty "broken", it's still better than nothing.
