Why do Gringos care so much about Brazilian fighters?
All i see when i get on here are Gringos speaking about Brazilian fighters and the brazilian crowds and respect.
I dont understand this obsession with Brazilian fighters and Brazil in general.
I dont watch the American cards and think to myself wow, if only the crowd had more respect then this would have been a truly great card!
So yeah, we might cheer for our fighter more than for foreigners, but i have never seen a Brazilian look at an American heavy card and start dissing out opinions about crowd behavior and respect.
Or even a Brazilian saying that he wants all Americans to loose in their next card.
I think that comments and attitudes like this are much worse examples of nationalism in MMA then a local crowd cheering their local fighters. That seems pretty reasonable to me. Although i understand that MMA is not a Nation vs Nation sport, I do understand that this is the simplest way for local media to drum up support for said event!
