With UFC bantamweight Erik Perez, though, UFC President Dana White drew the line at a luchador mask.

The headgear has long been tied to professional wrestling in Perez's home country of Mexico, but White initially nixed the 23-year-old plan's to don such a mask this weekend at UFC 155.

But after the fighter's pleas, White finally relented. And he said he learned a little something about the masks' history in the process.

"Those masks, Mexican wrestlers used to wear them, but it's a warrior thing, and they explained it to me," he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I can live with that.

"If it makes sense to me – and you're just not acting like an idiot trying to come up with a different spiel every time you walk, and that's your thing – I'm cool with that."

UG Blog at it again. The mask is ok in this one specific case. If Ross Pearson suddenly decided he wanted to wear one Dana would tell him to fuck off.

Now you've done it Dana, Soon the southern US fighters will be demanding to come out with a cheesy skank hanging off them, sunglasses and spit water on themselves.

LOL, I came on just to post that.

If "you're just not acting like an idiot trying to come up with a different spiel every time you walk" isn't referring to Tom, I don't know who it is :-P

was not a phantom kick; mirko actually fucked his ankle with that kick; look at the weird foot position as it lands, its his heel that strikes. Hard part of the body but the ankle was affected

Yeah, that line made absolutely no sense. Only Tom Lawlor (who is awesome) is allowed to spice things up at the weigh-ins? Phone Post
