As difficult as it is for some people to wrap their heads around, not everyone in the entire world see working for an American company to be the be-all end-all.

Can't believe I missed sergei, TS even mentioned him in the OP.

But yeah its not like Russian's have been dominating MMA forever. There are more now in Bellator and UFC than there ever has been.

It because the ethnic Russian all suck. Even Aleks E admitted this. All the UFC guys are the Islamic variet of Russians and that a small minority of the country's populace

LOL, Yeah instead they'll sign mediocre Aussie, UK, Sweden, Singapore, polish and Chinese fighters strictly based on nationality for watered down local cards. Guys that mediocre Russians would tool.

And where did Kharitov go? The guy beat many top guys and was entertaining.
1) Because Bellator has contracts too.
2) Kharitonov fights for Glory. He's specifically said "My heart belongs to kickboxing."

It's it only Russians but many European fighters don't want to come to the UFC to fight. They don't like the way the sport is run with all the politics and popularity contests. In Europe there is far less of that involved.....sport is more pure competition.
