    Ever wondered which country has produced the most champions and high level fighters in the UFC?

    America is the obvious answer, but how many? And who comes in second? Brazil? Russia? Canada? UK?

    TLDR? America by a fucking landslide.

    Current Top 15 Fighters:

    Heavyweight:

    America: 5
    Brazil: 2
    Russia: 3

    Light-Heavyweight:

    America: 6
    Brazil: 2
    Russia: 1

    Middleweight:

    America: 7
    Brazil: 5
    Russia:

    Welterweight:

    America: 8
    Brazil: 4
    Russia:

    Lightweight:

    America: 12
    Brazil: 1
    Russia: 1

    Featherweight:

    America: 10
    Brazil: 1
    Russia: 1

    Bantamweight:

    America: 10
    Brazil: 5
    Russia:

    Flyweight:

    America: 8
    Brazil: 5
    Russia: 1

    Women's Featherweight:

    America:
    Brazil: 1
    Russia:

    Women's Bantamweight:

    America: 9
    Brazil: 3
    Russia:

    Women's Strawweight:

    America: 8
    Brazil: 2
    Russia:

    Current Champions:

    America: 7
    Brazil: 2
    Russia: 1

    Former Champions:

    America: 44
    Brazil: 10
    Russia: 0

    Legends of the sport:

    America: Jon Jones, Chuck Liddel, Randy Couture (I'm not going to write all of them down)
    Brazil: Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, Big Nog
    Russia: Fedor, Igor and Taktarov


    America is by far number one. 70% of our current champions (excluding Nicco Montano) are American. Brazil takes number two by a landslide. Russia and UK are very close. Out of all the roster, Russia has 7 top 15 fighters and the UK has 6.

    Before some of you claim Russian's are taking over MMA, remember this; They are far behind Brazil, who are far behind Americans.

    Russia is still quite new to the UFC... they haven't ever had so much fighters. Maybe a lot of them won't become champions, but you can't deny guys have a solid place in the top 10/5 in the coming years.

    I guess but when it comes to the GOATs it's pretty even. 1 for Russia, 1 for Canada, 1 for Brazil, and 1 for USA.

    You non Americans are welcome to create a bigger promotion than UFC.

    You non Americans are welcome to create a better website than Sherdog.

    Except you can't, can you?

    Because we're simply the best at everything that matters.

    I guess. Women's MMA is still young and you could argue for Cyborg or JJ taking that spot.

    GOAT MW: Brazil
    GOAT WW: Canada
    GOAT LW: Arguable
    GOAT FW: Brazil
    GOAT BW: USA
