Silva a bigger star in Brazil than Bryant in US

[mmafighting.com]
 

"He’s bigger than Kobe Bryant and LeBron James here," his manager Ed Soares said on Wednesday's edition of The MMA Hour. "He's bigger than that there. It’s crazy. Every time I go there, I don't think it can get any bigger, but he seems to get even bigger."

"He went from a guy who was a top fighter in the world, a top pound-for-pound fighter to just about everywhere he goes, everybody's like, 'Hey, champ, you’re the greatest. You're the best. Can I get you this? Can I get you that?' It’ll get anybody a little bit tripped out. I think he’s kind of filling into the shoes that he's become. I think he's doing a great job with it. He's really kind of come full circle. I think he's handling it very well. He's kind of back to his roots. It’s very nice to see because there were some times when it started getting a little crazy."

Without having to read the article I can say, IMO he's right.

We live in Amuricah, where 'the masses elevate fools into rich heroes'.
Shit, that big assed non talent having hood-rat and her family are more famous than Kobe and Lebron, so yeah Ed Soares may be right. Phone Post

I would love to hear some Brazilians weigh in on this. If that's the case, things sure has changed sensationally the few years since I went to Brazil.

Btw has a brazilian he is really famous like he is right below our soccer player popularity he is not there yet ,but even my 85 year old grandmother nows who he is.on the other hand I dont beñive that p4p poll to be truth because if you guys will know us brazilians we will never root or take glory away from a brazilian to give it to someone else even if fedor is p4p is just not in our nature to do so

So let me get this straight.  He's bigger in Brazil than Lebron and Kobe are in the US and yet only 12% of the Brazilian population thinks he the goat?

Ed Ed Ed....

 

Or did he mean bigger than Lebron and Kobe are in Brazil?  Because that wouldn't make very much sense.

So if you're not the GOAT you can't be popular? Phone Post

Thanks for the input Blanka, interesting that Anderson is mainstream celeb in Brazil now.

To more important issues, when's Naymar coming to Europe? After the Brazil WC? Would love to see him in La Liga or PL (the latter is probably out of the question.

Look at the bright side. In 18 years time you can probably retire with VIP-seats at the Camp Nou.

You mean to say you're seriously too dumb to understand that an online poll amongst PVT (Portal Vale Tudo) forum users is a sample of less than 0.1% of the Brazilian population? Hahahahahaha!!

Oh Glovefag.

Let's figure out who "America" voting for this election by surveying the OtherGround.

<blockquote>Glovegate - <p>
No it's that what Ed's saying makes it seem as though it's not a small group of mma fans who don't think Anderson is the goat, it's the entire country.</p>
<p>
</p></blockquote>



That survey was amongst a sample of a few thousand on a Brazilian MMA forum called Portal Vale Tudo. It's pretty much the Brazilian Sherdog and is comprised of mostly opinionated hardcore fans who've been watching since Pride.

The fans on that forum don't particularly like Anderson (a lot like Jon Jones, he's seen as "cocky") and prefer guys from Pride FC REGARDLESS of nationality (hardcore MMA fans don't give a damn about nationality).

It IS a small group of MMA fans! lol

99% of people who watch UFC in Brazil since 2011 probably have no idea who or what the fuck a Fedor is.
