Brazilians? It's done to a far greater degree than when it goes to other countries. For that reason, we don't see the same depth of world class fighters, by definition.

To be fair, part of the reason it is "done to a far greater degree than when it goes to other countries" is because there are a LOT more great Brazilian fighters than there are of any other nationality.

In other markets, Zuffa has to beat the bushes to find a handful of local fighters who can be successful in the UFC. In Brazil, they are all over the fucking place. You can't shake a stick down there without whacking a quality pro fighter or two.

true. You'd never hear the end of it if US crowds acted like that. A USA USA chant is considered an international atrocity.

The only people who get bent out of shape about USA chants are self-loathing Americans and non-Americans who are looking for a reason to bitch about Americans.

That's just American sports culture.

None of the shit we do is imaginative or innovative. American sports crowds revel in simplicity. I'll take the wave or a USA chant over vuvuzelas any day of the week.

USA fans don't boo opposing fighters. However, they're in a low class dump here, where the Let It Bleed fan would come off as a genius.

That includes a high proportion of the young posters pussified by the current crop of educators.
