Luke Barnatt was robbed in his last fight. I suppose the best record for UK fighter at the moment is Norman Parke. Although Northern Ireland is part of the UK, the Northern Irish MMA scene is essentially the same circuit as the Irish scene.

Well for one, he said English.

Secondly, Ireland isn't part of the UK

I don't see great fighters from England for the UFC this moment.
Honestly for me he's a classic case of "training MMA only" not being enough to reach the top without an existing background.

As a Brit lets be honest the talent pool in the UK isn't good at all, besides the odd kickboxer MMA isn't really drawing in any of the best talent which would probably be in boxing and judo.

There is some really good talent in the UK, no idea why they have not signed Pietro Menga, pretty sure they know about him and yet other brits are getting called up that IMO aren't anywhere near his level.

I agree. I actually think there is a lot of decent UK fighters the UFC haven't picked up yet. I'd like to see them sign Danny Roberts, maybe he could fight Cathal Pendred.
