On whether he follows the 155 lb. division closely: I don't watch MMA outside of when I'm at events. I'll sit down, I'll watch the fights, but as far as what's going on in the lightweight division, I know who the champ is, outside of that, I don't know anyone (laughs).

On Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar: You know, I didn't see the first fight that they fought. The second time that they fought I was actually there. I thought that Frankie might have won that fight, just an opinion. I think a lot of people might have thought the same thing. But, you know, the judges might have saw something different. It was close enough to go either way, or worst case scenario been called a draw.

On Frankie Edgar's move to the featherweight division: I think that's a great decision. I think that he's going to give Jose Aldo hell, and I think he's going to beat him. With Frankie's wrestling and his mobility, I think he's going to give Aldo all he can handle. I'd like to keep all the belts here in the States. Right now we've got have the UFC belts in Brazil, the other half are here in the United States. I want them all to be here. This is an American sport, man, let's keep them here. No disrespect towards the Brazilians at all; I want to see Americans hold the title belts, just like they want to see the Brazilians hold title belts.

The whole concept of nationalism is misguided IMO. But u can't say that you guys didn't hope your country held the most Olympic medals. Most people anyway.

However, I feel like mma has transcended that. My favorite fighters are Cain/Gsp/ Aldo/ Pettis/ and Vitor. Pretty evenly spread out. And I feel many fans support fighters without taking into account nationality (except Brazilian fans)

The entire point of the Olympics is country against country.

Not so for MMA

He's like a 5'5 version of Hacksaw Jim Dugan. Only without the entertainment factor.

PLEASE if you come back Sherky, give Evan Dunham his rematch. He beat you the first time and was robbed.

Definitely isn't solely American but when im blank on two fighters and ones American I usually root for him. There are exceptions but I'd lot to see my Americans step it up a bit. We don't really have a real contender at hw (because cains weird belief that hes not an american) but in every other weight class we have have several top contenders or the belt. America's doing fine. Mw will be American soon anyways. Weidman 2013 baby Phone Post

This is an American sport?!? WTF?

Does Sherk know martial art did not originate in America? Also, Royce Gracie was the man when the UFC first began. Gracie is NOT American. The UFC IS an American promotion. But MMA itself is NOT American made.

They have to create new divisions so Americans can have a champ these days. Dana now wants Rousey in the UFC because she's got a belt. :-) Phone Post
